Price drops on the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95! 714 Euro only!

Share

Exactly one year ago Voigtländer announced the amazing Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens. And now we noticed the very first price drops on the Nokton. The normal price in Europe was 899 Euro and in US $1,199.00. But now there are considerable price drops on the lens. Probably because there are now plenty of them in Stock. The price dropped by 100 and sometimes 150 Euro!

Here are the current top prices (Click on the shopname to see the products page):
590 Euro at BHphoto (that’s without taxes).
714 Euro at Photo Video on eBay (France).
729 Euro at SC Photo on eBay (Hong Kong). (Attention, you have to pay import taxes!).
747 Euro at Ringfoto on eBay (Germany).
788 Euro at UKbnSuk on eBay (UK).
799 Euro at Leicaplace on eBay (Netherland).
799 Euro at Photoalps on eBay (Austria).
799 Euro at Infoto 24 on eBay (Poland).

      Voigtländer does make Nokton 50mm f1.1. It would be interesting to see comparison shots.

      If I didn’t already have one, I’d ask one of my friends in Europe to get me one.

      It’s also funny to see this lens drop in price when most of their other prices in the US just went up by 10%.

      • There was a link here quite a while ago about a video comparison with both 25 and 50 noktons regarding to dof/bokeh, but as far as i remember the subject was most of the time rather far away from the lens, so differences were subtle. I think with full figure portraits the 50 will still have a bit better isolation. if closer then this like half body or even closer, you won’t notice differences. Regarding to detail rendering i think the 50 is very close if not equal to the 25

  • Maybe price droped because of the now available Panasonic 25mm f1.4……………….

  • “Only”…
    🙁

    Gees I’m glad I don’t live in Europe!

  • Vendors in EU deserve some looting 🙂

    • Miroslav

      Not that I approve of it, but that’s what I thought when I heard about that Sony distribution center in London. In their analysis, Euronews mentioned “high price of electronic goods many young people regard as a status symbol” as one of the reasons for looting.

    Been a slow news week, yawn….

    How about anE-PL3/NEX-5N comparison test, Admin? Same size, same tilt screen, same price. Put the IBIS/small lens E-PL3 advantage up against the 5N’s sensor/peaking advantage? Bet you’d get some comments ;).

    • admin

      Slow week? Did you hear about the GX1? 🙂

  • Miroslav

    By the time Panasonic and Olympus introduce their equivalent to Sony’s peaking function, this lens will become affordable :).

  • B&H has had it listed for ages, but it’s never in stock- and hasn’t been in over 8-9 months.

  • Czech Voigtländer dealer CZRING (www.abcfotopotreby.cz) has it for est. €670 and in stock.
    Not affiliated w/ them, but bought mine last december (for even better price) and you can get that wonderful lens at: http://goo.gl/DNTUS
    🙂

      Thanks Lukas for the link. That’s a fair price for 25mm Nokton. Where did you buy yours and how much cost you (incl. VAT)?

    • eM

      Never heard of them and I’m Czech!! Thanks for the heads up 🙂

  • pdc

    In North America go to Cameraquest. I got mine there in March $850 including shipping.

    I think it was first announced at $899, then the price soared. It’s just going back to it’s natural price.

    • Indeed. After watching that video of them being hand assembled I see why they had trouble filling orders.

  • Joel

    I think the Panasonic 25/1.4 will have caused a slight price drop in the nokton..

  • Here is a test of the Panasonic/Leica 25/1.4:

    Stunning low light images, whisper silent autofocus.

    If I were Voigtlander, I would lower my price too.

  • Duarte Bruno

    Only 714€? That’s great, I’ll probably buy 10! 😛
    Wait a minute… I’ve got a Konica Hexanon 57mm F1.2 that gives me 1/4 thinner bokeh… and it cost me 180€!

    • Mr. Reeee

      Oh yeah, a 114mm equivalent lens is exactly the same as 50mm equivalent. What’s 50 or 60 millimeters here or there? 😉

      Your Hexanon 57mm and the Nokton 25mm would compliment each other rather well. My Pentax 50mm f1.4 SMC Takumar and Nokton 25mm work well together.

      I had a chance to get a Leica 25mm f1.4 before my Nokton 25mm order was filled. I went with the Voigtländer.

    it’s funny how the price drops and yet they aren’t really in stock in those “cheaper” locations… clever work!
