The problem i have with paying that sort of money, it better be on the camera all the time, not just used for specific occasions like low lighting or artistic shots. It just seems wasted on that. I do understand it is a beautifull lens and the results are unique, but for that kind of money, i just don't see the value.
As a whole, Leica prices are much more than what most people can justify. That's why Leica is for a niche market.
I agree with you, though. The Noctilux is expensive and to be honest, I don't know how often I would shoot with it, wide open. The 50/Summilux is a much more reasonable lens.
