Some Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 image samples (Photokina)


The Flickr user “Itemsis” just sent us an email to his latest images samples taken at photokina using the new Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 on a Panasonic G1. You can see two mroe pictures here at Flickr.

We already posted some images few weeks ago (

If you want the new Voigtländer instead of the Noktor you can preorder the lens on:
FotoMundus on eBay (Click here)Mainlinephoto Australia
Cameraquest (one of my favorite shops!)
The classic camera

Let me know if other stores do accept preorders! Thanks!

    Not bad. Pretty good bokeh, if a little too busy. Seems to me Itemsis hasn’t done much (if any) post processing on these sample pics, so probably you can sharpen the images a bit more.

    Actually I like his previous photos on his stream. Apparently he’s used a legacy lens for them since the files’ EXIF don’t mention the lens or aperture. If you’re reading this Itemsis, which lens did you use for those portraits? Also what about the macro shots?

    Nice pictures, good job.

    i think the prev portraits were done with a 50mm 1.4 from Canon…they look mighty good to me…

    Bokeh is as you could expect from any 0.95 lens – fuzzy and disharmonious, as opposed to mellow and creamy. I have the Angenieux and it’s not any better in this respect.

    Ergonomics will probably be much better than any of the c mount lenses (The Angenieux, specifically, has a very thin focus ring that is located to close to the lens mount), and sharpness – especially around the corners – looks much better probably because this lens is designed for a 4/3 sensor.

    I would have bought this lens if I didn’t already have too many lenses that cover 25mm. Good things come to those who wait?

  • Jonathan

    I think the D-Summilux 25mm has the best bokeh in this focal range, and the transition from focus to oof is really gradual and nice (objects just gradually blend into the background).

    On the other hand, the Voigtländer might produce better results @f/1.4

  • Miroslav

    I like the images. 1/250 exposure at ISO 100 is impressive for an inside shot.

  • iMikl

    Ooooooooooh yesssssss!!!
    Panasonic take your time withe the new fast primes, I’ll buy the Voigtänder in the meantime! :-)

  • Craig

    I quite like the extreme bokeh, creamy is interesting too and should be achievable in the right conditions with this lens.

  • I think the lights give a harsh specular look in the background, where the posted image has a simple background and actually turned out pretty creamy I think.

    A lot sharper than other samples I’ve seen, but I wonder if they were from another version of this lens. This might actually be a winner!

  • Jonathan

    @ clark – i’m basing my comment on hair pin on the right side of the frame.

    i’m not saying it’s bad bokeh, in fact i haven’t seen anything better from any 0.95 lens.

    sharpness looks really good.

    anyone care to trade this lens for an Angenieux? :)

  • Visitor

    I’ll buy the Pani’s 25.4. :-)

  • Woodent

    For what it’s worth, the hope for digital coupling of the lens with the body to transmit lens/aperture information look completely ruined by EXIF data of these shots :(
