Totally Manual Focus Including
Manual Exposure for Micro Four Thirds
The Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Lens for the Micro Four Thirds System features an extraordinarily big maximum f/0.95 aperture --that's over a full stop quicker than a high speed f/1.4 lens. This 0.95 lens comes out at a 35mm format equivalent compared with a "normal" 50mm and has the capacity to produce enormously shallow depth of fields at wide aperture settings--an effect that's not always simple to pull off using small image-sensor cameras like the Micro Four Thirds.
The 0.95 lens is made in Japan by Cosina, and features a very solid build, although it's totally manual focus including manual exposure--there's not even an electronic camera connection, just mechanical. This makes the Nokton an "old-school" camera lens in the better sense and commands the same type of concentration as manual lens from out of the past, however the benefits might just be worth the effort--there aren't a large amount of lenses like this one that mount on non-SLR cameras. It features metal lens hood and metal lens caps for both ends of the lens which are all included.
