Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f0.95 for Micro Four Thirds
In a surprise announcement, Cosina today unveiled the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95, a new, ultra-fast standard prime for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The Nokton 25mm f/0.95 - which is not to be confused with the Noktor 50mm f/0.95, a longer and altogether completely different lens made by another company - is a genuine Micro Four Thirds lens that does not require the use of an adapter. Like other current Voigtländer lenses, the Nokton 25mm f/0.95 is manual-focus only, and comes with a distance scale complete with depth-of-field marks; something unique among MFT lenses. Constructed of 11 elements in 8 groups, this new 25mm lens has a diagonal angle of view of 47.3°; essentially the same as that of a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera. Outfitted with a 52mm filter thread and shipping with a hood, the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 will be released in October priced at 95,000 yen.
