ROBERT WHITE, the exclusive UK importer for Voigtlander Cosina products are pleased to announce an updated version of the Voigtlnder Nokton 25mm f0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens. This long awaited revised version features a new aperture control mechanism which allows the user to choose between "clicked" and step-less operation; a desirable feature for video/movie makers, and already present on the 17.5 & 42.5mm versions of this lens.
Otherwise unchanged from the previous version, the Voigtlnder Nokton 25mm f0.95 II is a manual-focus lens with an optical formula of 11 elements in 8 groups and a 10-bladed iris diaphragm.

The new lens is now available from Robert White, priced at £660.00 incl Vat.
Voigtlander's new Nokton 25mm f0.95 Version II Lens for Micro Four Thirds Cameras has an extraordinarily wide maximum aperture of f0.95 - more than a full stop faster than a very fast f1.4. This lens is equivalent to a "normal" 50mm lens in 35mm format and is capable of producing extremely shallow depth of field at wide apertures - an effect not always easy to accomplish with small-sensor cameras like those in the Micro Four Thirds format.
This lens is manufactured by Cosina in Japan, and has very solid construction; with strictly manual focus and manual exposure, there's no electronic connection to the camera. The Nokton is an "old-school" traditional lens in the best sense and requires the same level of attention as manual-focus, manual-aperture lenses of the past, but the rewards are worth it there aren't many lenses like this for non-SLR cameras

This is the fastest 50mm lens available for micro four thirds cameras. This superb lens has been used on cameras such as the Panasonic G up to broadcast quality video systems like the AF101.
