Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 overview

  • 1Description

With a 21mm equivalent focal length and an extremely fast f/0.95 maximum aperture, 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. The lens utilizes a pair of aspherical elements to reduce aberrations and distortions, as well as maintain a compact form factor. This manual focus, manual exposure prime lens also features the Selective Aperture Control System, which permits switching between a stepless, de-clicked aperture selection method and 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.

Extremely bright and fast 10.5mm f/0.95 lens produces a 21mm equivalent focal length on Micro Four Thirds cameras.
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.
A pair of aspherical elements controls aberrations and distortions for greater sharpness and clarity.
Fully manual focus and exposure lens features an all-metal lens barrel and a 10-blade diaphragm.

    Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 reviews

    Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95 Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low-light champion It's the best wide lens for my GH4 plus its low-light feature. Although the image quality is not sharp when maximizing to F/0.95, it is still acceptable for video quality. Many reviews complain its heavy weight, but I am ok because Canon L series lens is heavier. Also I know people think M43 is hard for bokeh effet, but not with this lens. When switching to F0.95, the depth of field would look like F2.0, compared to full-frame camera. So you get F2.0 DoF feeling and get the real F0.95 light in :D The only thing I don't like is its rear lens cap. It is very loose and you can't tighten it for some reason. Remember to buy one instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have Lens For the GH4 or Any M43 Camera Amazing lens... the stepless, De-Clicked aperture ring is smooth as butter. Sharp to the edges and incredible in low light. As a Panasonic GH4 user this lens keeps me away from the noisy ISO 1600 when external light is not an option. Depth of field is amazing (for a M43) wide open at F-0.95 so you have to be careful if that's not the look you're going for. Manual focus only so you have to be comfortable with that but with focus peaking I find it is dead on. At 21mm (35mm equivalent)I'm not noticing any distortion, so for me... it is the perfect lens. A little long and heavy but it is a well built piece of glass.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as sharp as the 42.5, but still a very stunning image. Love the cinematic quality of the image produced, and lovely build quality. I wish this lens was as sharp as the 42.5 at its maximum aperture, but other than that I really can't fault it. Very wide without being ugly and having that fisheye warp, this lens will give you the drama of a wide lens when close focusing on your subject (you can focus quite close), and can easily render out of focus backgrounds, but the f0.95 will not produce the fine detail that you can get on the 42.5mm. Great for lowlight gathering, but just keep in mind there will be some compromise (typically true of fast lenses).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge fan of Voigtlander lens This is my second Voigtlander lens. The first, 25mm, I used 90% of the time. My other lens did not come close to the quality of the Voigtlander. So when deciding on a wide angle lens, it was not a difficult decision! 0.95, tell me a lens you can compare at this price. I was also very lucky to take advantage of a Black Friday $$off sale. So thank you B & H. I will always return to your fabulous store (and I am in Australia!)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from image not as sharp wide open I had problem of using this lens for video under F/2.0. At F/0.95 (and even F1.4), the images are of low contrast and blurry and cannot even be acceptably corrected in the post. I only use this lens at or above F/2.0. This made me regret that I purchased this lens because I could get a lens with a spec of F/2.0 instead of F/0.95 claimed by this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Addition to the M4/3 Lineup This lens is just wide enough before it gets that fisheye bend. It's gorgeous in both imagery and craftsmanship, the same as the rest of the lens line. My biggest surprise was the incredible depth of field when the lens is wide open. Still sharp enough to use, especially, at like 1.2. For the work that I do, this lens is a god send, and the missing piece to my micro 4/3 lineup. It's also the perfect mate for the GH4 and my Helix Jr.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great lens Wide spectrum of f stop so you can function in various light conditions. With BMPCC, I have also variable neutral density filter and I can use it at night and bright day light. It's amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first serious full manual lens, loving it This is my second full manual lens, the first is the 7.5 mm Samyang fish eye (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/859162-REG/Samyang_SY75MFT_B_7_5mm_f_3_5_UMC_Fisheye.html); which really the manual focus did not even bother me since I personally shoot with focus set to infinity most of the time with the fish-eye; so when I was looking at this lens, I was afraid that I will not be able make the most out of this lens since I am really not that familiar with full manual controls. Now I have own this lens for about 2 weeks, used it for a few occasions, spent sometime getting to know the tricks in using manual lens via OMD EM-5 (first gen), first I tried the magnifier, loved it, helped a ton, then found the focusing peaking hack (using the art filter), then everything from that point on is just wow, I did not know this could be that easy. I take photos of my 5 years old and 3.5 years old with this lens too (Widest setting at F.95), and I am by no means expert in manual lens, and I am shocked by the fact that most of the picture are dead on with the focus (thanks to focus peaking). I tend to use this lens at the maximum F.95 most of the time, and for a lens that's this wide 10.5 mm, it's really a one of the kind of lens. I have read all the reviews online (those major lens / camera review sites) before I made the purchase, I did it because many of the review sites did not even utilize the lens for what the lens is good at, it's a very fast and very wide angle lens, and these sites shows majority of their sample shoots at F4 or higher and compare to cheaper lens, which IMO even the reviews are correct but they missed the point of even considering this lens, it's a super wide and fast lens. So, I gave it a 5 stars because I know ahead of time that this lens is not the lens to buy if you don't often utilize the very fast and very wide aspect of it, and I bought it for the using the fast and wide characteristic of the lens, and I am very happy with the outcome of it. If anything, I wish the lens could be lighter than what it is, but given the build quality and the fact that it's a full metal construction, I think I might be just asking for too much.
