Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 lens preview by Mike Kobal

Share

Mike Kobal made that very nice video with the GH1 and the Nokton 25mm (Source: mikekobal.com): “The aperture was set to 1.4 for all clips, ISO to 100. I like the results, the Nokton lives up to the hype, it is very sharp at 1.4 (except for the extreme corners).” He also posted one more “night” video taken with aperture set at f/0.95(Click here).

He also posted a nice set of images on flickr:

My impression of this lens so far:
@0.95 slightly soft in the center and in the corners, but sharpens up nicely in ps, extreme corners are very soft, very usable overall.
@1.4 very sharp in the center and in the corners, extreme corners are still soft.
@2.0 extremely sharp in the center and in the corners, extreme corners are still soft.

The built quality is excellent, the focusing ring is fantastic, very well dampened and it is very easy to pull focus during video takes.

Thanks Mike for your nice work!!!
