Nikkor-Q.C 5cm f/3.5 LTM

Nikon (Nippon Kogaku) Nikkor-Q.C 5cm f/3.5 Review – An Odd Duck in the Sea of 50mm Lenses – By Agata Urbaniak

In the early days of my interest in Leica, what I found particularly curious was just how many 50mm lenses its users had. It used to be so simple – at first you want a lens that’s going to cover all bases, then you start thinking about lenses for particular purposes. What usually gets you over wanting an all-purpose lens is the speed. It gets you over the pursuit of sharpness too, who cares about corner sharpness when you’ve got an f/1.4 lens. And you think as long as you’ve got the fastest lenses you can afford for each type of photography you want to pursue, you’re all set. Why have multiple seemingly similar lenses?
