BH #PA42512 • MFR #H-NS043
Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens
Key Features
  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 85mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • Two Aspherical Elements
Characterized by its fast and sophisticated optical design, the Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. from Panasonic is an 85mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The fast f/1.2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords more control over focus position for producing shallow depth of field imagery. The lens's optical design employs a pair of aspherical elements, one UHR element, and one extra-low dispersion element to reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for improved sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Nano Surface Coating also enhances contrast and color fidelity by reducing lens flare and ghosting.

For some reason my BMPCC4K stopped to recognize the image stabilization and the F/1.2 (it reaches to F/1.3). Is this a common problem with the lens ? If yes is there any known fix about it ? If not, what would you suggest of me doing in order to solve the problem ?
Asked by: Menelaos
This is not a common problem but the best course of action would be to make sure both the camera and the lens are updated to the most recent firmware and to be sure the pin connection is clean. If all of those have been done and the problem persists, it is most likely a problem with the mechanism in the lens.

Would the Lens Power IS circuit communicate to a G85 camera body when using Vello Deluxe Auto Focus Extension Tube Set for Micro Four Thirds Mount ?
Asked by: David
Electronic communication is maintained between the camera and lens with B&H # VEEXTMFTD. The Optical Image Stabilization should still work with this lens and that adapter.

question

Does this lens support panning IS mode (vertical stabilization only)? One person reported the IS mode menu is grayed out on GH5 for this lens so he can't select the panning IS mode.
Asked by: Sergejs
It sounds like you are referring to the Dual IS ability the GH5 has.The lens does need to have IS which that one does. And it is listed as compatible with the GH5 and Dual IS.
