heh, the way you responded, it sounds like I've just said: "I can only promise shots of cocaine, vodka, and speed."

But I'd been watching this eBay auction for a week and the bid for the nokton f/1.1 lens had gone higher and higher and higher, to about $660 last night. Then just by chance I bumped into a "buy it now" listing for another nokton f/1.1 by another seller for $645.
(1) I'd never seen the f/1.1 nokton sell for this low before, and...
(2) the bidders in the other auction for that nokton had overshot the price for this new listing and none of them had noticed it yet.
(3) the seller had an excellent eBay rating.
So after aching over it for a couple of hours, I jumped on it. I just had to.
The other one eventually sold for $690 in the end.

Great Lens. Has some issues but when it's on...... it's on.

I've often wondered if there's any advantage from drawing the bow from up high (other than looking cool). Great photos folks! The Nokton 50/1.1 is the poor man's Noctilux. Although it's still pretty expensive for a poor man!
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

I don't know too much about bowing but they were the slowest activity show in the festival:) I think the eye level should be easier, but then they are not too far from their target. When they took their time, I practiced my manual focus shooting:) It is not a Noctilux on nex, eg 75mm 1.9, but I am waiting for Sony full frame to use it more, but then the dof might be even harder for fast shooting, maybe it might be easier to focus on a m9...
