Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 overview

  • 1Description

The Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Type II Lens for Micro Four Thirds is a bright, fast normal-length lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 50mm when used on Micro Four Thirds Cameras. This manual focus, manual exposure prime lenses utilizes a Selective Aperture Control System, which permits switching between a stepless, de-clicked aperture selection method or a traditional aperture control method with click stops. When set to the stepless setting, silent and smooth exposure adjustments can be made that are especially beneficial when recording video.

The optical construction incorporates ultra-high refractive glass, which helps to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce imagery with notable clarity and sharpness. Ten aperture blades form a nearly circular diaphragm in order to produce and aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is especially noticeable when using selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Extremely bright and fast 25mm f/0.95 lens produces a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 50mm when used on a Micro Four Thirds camera.
Selective Aperture Control System produces a stepless, de-clicked aperture ring, which provides silent and smooth exposure adjustment that is well-suited for video application. The aperture ring can also be configured to utilize traditional click stops for more intuitive tactile control over exposure settings.
Ultra-high refractive glass is used within the optical design to reduce chromatic aberrations in order to realize immense image clarity and sharpness.
Fully manual focus and exposure lens features an all-metal lens barrel and a 10-blade diaphragm.

    Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 reviews

    Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Type II Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Go To This lens has become my new favorite. I own the EM-5. The 25 mm focal length is fantastic. It is a little soft and has some vignetting wide open, but its a pleasing effect IMO. One click down and its superb. The colors, contrast and bokeh are amazing. The manual focus is so creamy smooth. With the magnify function focus isn't too difficult to hit. The more practice the better. It is a great lens to hold and use. The manual focus gives me a another level of connection with my photos. I'm anxious to get the other two to complete my collection. It is heavy, but not in a bad way. Its a tank. This is a lens I could carry and use all day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens sees in the dark! My wife and I shoot weddings with 2 Panasonic GH4s and obviously the lighting at receptions was a problem. We used this lens at the reception we shot last night, at f.95, and it was incredible. It was so much fun to shoot people dancing without having to blast a light in their face, more people played to the camera instead of looking at us like a nuisance, and the insane depth of field just made the footage look cooler. The image we were capturing was brighter than what we saw with our eyes. Even at f.95 I didn't think pulling focus was very difficult, and the lens seemed to smooth out the GH4's noise somehow even at iso1600. I highly recommend this lens as an alternative to a speed booster if you need better low light performance out of your MFT camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, built like a tank, and beautiful. Seriously, this lens is better than I expected. The build quality is phenomenal.. all metal and gorgeous glass. I have no problem with manual focus and sometimes quite prefer it. The focusing is silky smooth. The bokeh is beautiful, and give wonderful seperation of foreground and background.. you need an f .95 for that on mft... Or a minimum of 1.4. As some have said, there is some issue with chromatic aberration in certain light, but it is so easy to fix in post, that it doesn't really bother me. So far, this is the best 50mm equivalent I have used for this system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid glass and metal Designed for a 4/3 sensor, this lens is completely manual, but video is my passion, so I don't use auto anything; this lens meets my needs. It has a long focus adjust, and an easy way to de-click the aperture. It was not first designed as a cine lens, but it functions as one. Don't buy it for f/0.95. Its super soft at that f stop, but stopped down from there, it's super sharp. This's a great manual lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical lens I thought manual would be an issue but it's excellent built quality the manual focus is superb and manual aperture gives you a neat way connect with your photos. The Bokeh is great it's brining those great Bokeh images to 4/3rd sensors (equivalent to a 1.8 on full frame) highly recommend this lens it's my daily used lens on mirrorless cameras

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens for Olympus OMD This is a spectacular lens, capable of turning a modern camera into a better proxy of what I grew up using. The quality of the photos, soft, with great subject separation, have been missing from my shots ever since the development of digital photography.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best MFT lens on the market This is easily the best lens on the market for any MFT camera. The focus pulls very easily and accurately. Its also built like a tank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeably heavier than most M43s, but worth it The best use for this lens is any use where a normal field of view is appropriate. The Nokton 25 mil is mounted on my Oly E-M1 by default. For a while, 50 mil lenses, I guess for the field of view they provided, seemed to be dismissed by photographers. I think that's changing and lens is a great choice for that 'normal' field of view for M43. Another reviewer noted that it's heavier than many M43 lenses and it is. Noticeably so. I carried it around photographing a corporate event last summer and after a couple hours, the weight was apparent. I expect it will be esp. noticeable if you're used to other four-thirds lenses. But the image quality and flexibility for compositions that the f0.95 aperture provides makes it worth the effort. And it's certainly smaller and lighter than a 50mm f 1.2 for a Nikon or Canon. As others have said, the manual focus is so well executed that you might not even notice it once you get used to using it. And I wish more manufacturers would implement a mechanical aperture ring. I love it. The only issue I have with this lens is the need to record the f-stops you use, if you want that information later. I usually don't remember it, and I'm not as conscientious as I should be about writing it down. Aside from that, this lens is a great value.
