    I'm told this lens is not worth getting. Keat Camera has one on a Canon RF body and it has been on the shelf for more than 2 years.

    Great photo effect, what effect? If you want the soft dreamy look then it certainly does it, mind you, soft and dreamy throughout the field. So sharpness, no. not sharp.
    example shots : http://www.flickr.com/photos/doo3/se...7606803194199/
    It will be around 8000~10000 MYR everywhere.
    What body are you using? Do you really need that f0.95? There are other good alternatives out there. No 0.95 for sure though, for the price.

    It is just bragging rights...don't think it will ever get used as an everyday lens

    The Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.1 may be a more economical (and modern!) choice. It's huge and heavy though.

    It blocks the finder to quite an extent.

    And I read that you need to use a toothpick to press the lens release

    Of course it would work flawlessly, IF it were converted to M mount by a competent technician.

    Go to Keat and talk to Raymond. He has one on a Canon RF body. If it is as good as people make it out to be I would have bought it long ago. Please save your money. If you want a lens for your Leica that's a good investment, get a Noctilux 1.0 or better still the 0.95. I have both and frankly I have never even used the 0.95 since I bought it.

    You keep asking if it's good and I said it's not. If you buy it I'm sure you'll be disappointed. Then you will surely have problem trying to flog it later.

    IMHO, it depends on what type of shooter you are. each lens and aperture serves its purposed. everything come with a price, that's why we bring two to three lens out to the field. i got two TV lens, Canon 50mm TV f0.95 and FNO 50mm TV f0.95, both converted to Leica M... love the bokeh and dreamy effect for portraits and streets photography. i will one day save enough (retirement fund "EPF") to get the Leica 50mm f0.95..
