Key Features

The Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens is a bright, fast portrait-length lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 85mm when used on Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras.

This is ideally-suited to video applications or for greater control over aperture selection while shooting.

Has anyone used this with a GH5?Seems this would be a great cost-effective alternative to the 42.5 mm Panasonic Nocticron, but will focus peaking and the 3-position rack focusing features still work with this manual focus lens?
Asked by: John
Focus peaking will work with manual lenses, like the Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds lens, however the Panasonic Transition focus rack focusing feature will not be compatible with manual lenses.

For those who are using this lens, how easy is the manual focusing, especially when shooting wide open with narrow depth of field? Thanks.
Asked by: Satyakanth
At F/0.95 you will need to be very precise to get the proper focus. You will need to take advantage of whatever focus assisting tools are available to you on your camera, such as focus peaking and magnification of the image.

It will not. This lens only covers a MFT sized sensor and its 35mm Equivalent Focal Length will be 85mm.

can it be mount on Sony 7aS ?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, you cannot. You can mount full frame lenses onto Micro 4/3 cameras, but not the other way around - the field of vision is too small.

Would it make any sense to use an extension tube with this lens for more of a macro effect? I realize this lens already focuses to around 9 , which is super; but, I'm trying to discern the pros & cons of an extension tube with such a fast lens. Any thoughts on this set up?
Asked by: Anonymous
It would make some sense yes. Virtualy any focal can be used with an extension tube with some levels of success. Shorter focals tend to work best with tubes but this one would definitely be one I think would be worth experimenting with. Most macro shots are shot stopped down at smaller apertures but again, with such a wide aperture it would be fun to experiment with results when shooting wide open as this lens can go.
