Noctilux

What a nice name! A Leica lens. 50/0.95. Can you imagine that? I know there are some film lenses that go even wider than that. 0.7 – Kubrick – Barry Lyndon: most of the night scenes (candle light) were shot without extra light. And only a lens so fast could’ve done the job. Anyway, click here to see some photos taken with it. The wonderful Bokeh, the slight vignetting, the perfect sharpness… And, by the way, it only costs a little over $ 10,000! Pipe dreams…
