Today Voitgländer will announce the production of new lenses for the MicroFourThirds system!
The first lens to be unveiled is the new Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens. This lens has been designed for MFT and you don’t need to use any adapter! The Lens is manual only (no autofocus). Expected price $1000 and availabilty by October/November.
The image quality is reported to be on a very high level. The only comparable lenses to date are the old C-mount lenses like the [shoplink 15432]Schneider 25mm f/0.95 (which costs over $900 at eBay)[/shoplink]. There are also two more 25mm f/0.95 lenses like the [shoplink 15433]Navitar and Angenieux (again C-mount lenses)[/shoplink]. But those are not designed for MFT and you need an MFT adapter. They are also a little bit more expensive than the Nokton (and the Nokton is new!).
We hope to learn more about the Voigtländer-MicroFourThirds future strategy as soon as possible!
