Dylan Cuthbert is one of the first 43rumors readers who received the new Nokton 10,5mm f/0.95 MFT lens. And he sent me this:
“I received the Voigtlander Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95 lens this morning and after a few test shots I think it is going to be a lot of fun to use. Here are a couple of those test shots:
And finally, a bokeh test, fully open and lens almost touching the keyboard, look at that crazy bokeh swirly stuff that’s going on near the borders!
There is also a hands-on report at BCcamera:
“Wide open at F0.95, the Nokton doesn’t seem very sharp or perhaps it’s because the focal plane is so tiny that it’s hard to judge. With 10 aperture blades, out of focus elements are rendered smooth. Stopping down slightly to F2.0 is a huge improvement in sharpness already and it’s excellent at F2.8, at which point you get diminishing returns on sharpness stopping down further.“
It’s really an amazing lens from Voigtlander. Just like all other Nokton 0.95 lenses they made before (and which I do own).
You can get the lens in many stores like BHphoto (Click here), CameraQuest (Click here) and Photovillage (Click here). In Europe at FotoMundus (Click here) in Asia at Taku (Click here).
