Portrait processed with VSCO Kodak Portra 400 and Tri-X. All settings neutral otherwise. There's almost no difference.

Leica lenses are legendary and durable yet some of these legendary lenses are beyond most people's budgets. For example, Leica Noctilux with an aperture of f/0.95 sells over 4 digits in U.S. dollar terms. Of course, there can only be a limited number of these amazing lenses in production which of course results in a production cost that some would consider expensive or unattainable.
Personally, I feel there is nothing like a Leica Noctilux whether it is made in the 60's or now. They provide a tool that no other lens can provide with an aperture setting of f/0.95 one can attain a very shallow depth of field. For most everyday users this option may not be very exciting feature, especially if one is using this lens at apertures other then widest f stop.
