    I noticed that this lens didn't have a thread for it yet. I know a lot of people write this lens off as a collector's item... but really, I think it's wonderful to use, with a long focus throw, and currently about the same price (with the adapter) as a 50mm Pre-Asph Summilux. I bought mine second (or third) hand and an Amedeo adapter to use it. It uses modern 43mm filters.

    This lens is sharp, the best 50mm F1.4 lens ever made by Nikon. I have one, keep it on the S3-2000 or the SP. This lens is basically the Olympic 5cm F1.4 Nikkor with multicoated optics. I should try it with an adapter on the Leica.
