First “Brezel shot” with the amazing Nokton 10,5mm lens :)



This is one of the few image samples taken with the great new 10,5mm f/0.95 Voigtlander Nokton lens (listed here at BH). That brezel-shot is very useful to check the bokek quality. Looks very good to me or not? Damn, I am hungry now for both the Nokton and the Brezel:)

A few more image samples can be seen at Voigtlander Facebook page.


These are the other three Nokton f/0.95 lenses:
Nokton 25mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).

Mobile01 posted the full Olympus 40-150mm PRO lens review. You can find plenty of image samples you can download to review for yourself. Here are the reviewers conclusions:

1) Image quality is very high straight from maximum aperture (bets sharpness at f/4.0). 40mm shaprness test image here. 150mm sharpness test image here.
2) Bokeh is very natural and soft
3) purple fringing is only present at 40mm in extreme conditions. At 150mm there is no purple fringing
4) Anti flare performance is good althaugh not exceptional
5) There is almost zero distortion
6) Very fast autofocusing

There is no doubt this is a very high quality lens from Olympus!

or watch it on Youtube (http://youtu.be/TGmNJo8_gSk). The results are somewhat surprising. Regards,
