A must read! Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 tested at Photozone.

Share
That is going to be a must read review for everyone! Photozone (Click here) just published the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 review. We are talking about a Micro Four Thirds lens that is highly requested and sadly almost nowhere available. Those are the key conclusions of the review:
– “Technically the lens is capable of delivering a sharp image center at very large apertures but the borders are fairly soft here.”
– “The quality of the bokeh (out-of-focus blur) is generally impressive although you can push it into producing some less than pleasing highlight artifacts at f/0.95”
– ” Bokeh fringing is visible at large apertures but this is true for the vast majority of ultra-large aperture lenses. Lateral CAs are minimal and there isn’t really any significant amount of distortion to worry about either.”
– “The mechanical quality is outstanding thanks to an all-metal lens body and a dampened focus ring. Only a weather sealing is missing here.”

He tested the lens on the Panasonic GF1. Read the full review at www.photozone.de

Reminder: The lens is sold out in most worldwide shops. The next Stock of lenses will be shipped in late April only. You can get the lens at eBay (Click here) where there are a dozen auctions ongoing right now.

  • Mr. Reeee

    Yet another good review.
    Preordered one in early February. The same day I managed to order my GH2.

    If I didn’t like mine so much i’d almost be willing to sell it at a ridiculously overinflated price. Brilliant walk around lens. No regrets on the price.

    Yeah it’s a serious review. But in video terms, and that is my main purpose, the cons are really minimized. Great lens, unique signature!

    Here my flower takes with the Nokton on GH1.
