Voigtlander Nokton Classic 40mm f1.4 - Photo Set

The temperature is now back to normal, hovering around negative single digits in celsius. This balmy weather has been a good incentive for me to go out during lunch and take some pictures, which I haven't done much since winter started. For some reason, I have been enjoying more black and white renditions of the pictures of late, probably because we have had so much snow so far.

I have had the Voigtlander Nokton Classic 40mm f1.4 mounted on the NEX-6 for the last few days. It actually looks very nice on the NEX-6, especially with its original vented hood; it's almost classic looking, a la film Leica M, and it balances very nicely. I like it as a walk around lens. The only thing that bothers me to no end, is the focusing lever. I am used to having a focus ring on lenses, but this one has just a lever on the side one uses to turn the focus mechanism. I was constantly looking for this stupid lever when I need to focus the lens. It's especially bad when using gloves.  Other than that, it's a very sweet and nice looking lens, with optical quality to match.
