Just picked up this lens. Very excited to see how it will find its way into shooting. Just a few from today.

Hi Micheal, nice to see other members joining in on the fun. Are you enjoying this lens much?

I find it has easy handling & somehow more easy to use with focus peaking as any other lens so far...?

This lens seem to have 2 distinct types of character:
#1 dreamy bokeh wide open


#2 few clicks on the aperture ring gives razor sharp IQ ino the corners.


2 lenses 1 one

Well, so far I have used my VM 75 Nokton less frequently than it maybe deserves credit. But the few times I have put the lens on camera, it was a joy to use and delivered excellent results.
But I don't think that it's general use is different compared to any other adapted manual lens, especially when you are used to focus old manual lenses on a7 series by focus peaking/magnifier; though of course the resistance of the focus ring is perfect.

The raw files that come out through this lens needs a bit of slinding in Lightroom. Not much.
