Focussing on the important parts of life :-)
 
btw the face is not blurry enough - google still recognizes it's a face :P (quite impressive actually)
 
the m9 doesn't always report the right aperture, that's a common problem.

i love how creamy/dreamy/soft this lens is. it's one of my favourites.
Good thing is it works quite nice together with the Sony Nex5N/7 which gives you a far better and more accurate way to focus with the inbuilt focus help. At least for me i managed to only throw away 2 out of 3 of all f/0,95 images instead of 9 out of 10 with the Leica M9...
 
I'm sure its at 0.95...as I never take my Noctilux off of it.  

+Thomas Hertz  Do you use the 1.4x magnifier?  It helps massively with focusing. 
 
Have you changed <i>your</i> bottle lately?
 
+Dave Powell I'm always surprised at what Google knows ;)
But why Google gives me not even a million euros? They must surely know that!
 
+Dave Powell no. i was thinking of wether the 1.25 or 1.4 could be an option... you're happy with the 1.4? Then i think ill give it a try..
 
Personally I like 1.4.   You lose a bit of the frame lines on the edges but I don't really care as I want to see the focus point.
 
Ah glad you are focusing on the serious matters now,
 
Have the 1.2.. and sometimes it looks like it blurs the picture in the viewfinder a bit. 

I so wish they would put the M3 viewfinder in their cameras.... focusing is so easy with that one
 
At one time I had a Minolta with a Vivitar lens that could take that shot easy! Now mine is impossible to convince it has to let go of it's own thing! I know, I know, that's scary imagery these days.
