Damn, Leica. I know you make awesome lenses and all, but a sub-F/1 production lens? When Kubrick had his f/0.7 lens made specially for Barry Lyndon, it appropriated NASA tech and the rear element was 4mm from the film plane (very dangerous). It was also hand-made and priceless. These Leica Noctiluxes are the next best thing: incredibly expensive. €8000 or over $11,000 will buy you one, but you’ll still need to ratchet up the ISO to take pictures of candlelit Victorian England.
