The Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 for Micro Four Thirds is one of the most interesting pieces of my kit. With a huge f/0.95 aperture, it allows over an extra full stop of light to the camera, compared to the f/1.4; the limit of most “large aperture primes” on the market. If f/1.2 is high-end and f/1 is exotic when it happens, the f/0.95 is obscene. Set your ISO to a modest “800”. And crank open an f/0.95 lens. The shutter speed jumps to 1/200 solely with the street lights, and 1/500 around commercial areas, with lots of neons and shop windows. You can freeze the action on places you can barely see where you’re going, without boosting the ISO and the noise that comes with it. it’s the first of four “Nokton” lenses that solved an old Micro Four Thirds problem: the lack of equivalent options for the DSLR “look”. All 10.5mm, 17.5mm, 25mm, and 45mm “f/0.95” can render on the mirrorless format the same shallow DoF look from APS-C or full-frame DSLR. I knew the f/0.95 would do it and after a long search in Hong Kong, I found it on a dubious store, one of those places that sell smoothie blenders on the same counter as digital cameras.
The Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95 Lens from Voigtlander offers Micro Four Thirds users a wide-angle lens well-suited for low-light still photography and video.
