Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 Overview

More than just the lens, the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens with Lens Care Kit from B&H bundles the portrait-length prime with a lens cleaning kit.

Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens

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.

Complementing the optical attributes, this lens also distinguishes itself with a POWER Optical Image Stabilizer, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A stepping AF motor and internal focus design also offer fast and near-silent focusing performance that is ideal for both photo and video applications.

Portrait-length prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides an 85mm equivalent focal length.
Exceptionally fast f/1.2 maximum aperture offers notable control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques and also benefits shooting in low-light conditions.
Two aspherical elements and one Ultra-High Refractive Index element help reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
One extra-low dispersion element controls chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Nano Surface Coating minimizes surface reflections throughout the entire visible spectrum for maintained contrast and color fidelity with a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
An internal focusing system, coupled with a stepping AF motor, results in fast, smooth, and precise focusing performance that is well-paired to both still shooting and movie recording.
POWER Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) minimizes the appearance of camera shake to realize sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Metal lens barrel is accentuated by a dedicated MF/AF switch and an aperture ring for more direct, intuitive operation.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

ZEISS Lens Cleaning Kit

This Lens Cleaning Kit from ZEISS is a complete solution for cleaning valuable optics such as camera lenses, eyeglasses, telescopes, or spotting scopes.

Both wet and dry cleaning tools are provided. For blowing dust off an optical surface, the air blaster can be used, while the retractable lipstick-style cleaning brush can dislodge more stubborn dirt or dust particles.

When a thorough wet cleaning is required, a 1 oz bottle of cleaning fluid or ten, individually-wrapped pre-moistened lens wipes are available. Designed for single use, these wipes come in individual, disposable packets. They can be stored in a camera bag, glove compartment, studio, or lens case for whenever they may be needed.

The non-abrasive, 7.1 x 7.1" microfiber cloth can be used after applying fluid or one of the pre-moistened wipes in order to complete the cleaning process and ensure that no streaks or spots remain. It can also be used on its own to effectively remove smudges.

A fabric travel case is also included to hold the contents of the entire kit.

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.

question

How quick is the auto focus on this lens compared to less expensive lenses? Example: Filming an action shot.
Asked by: CHRISTOPHER A.
With the GH5-S, this lens has the best/fastest/most accurate auto focus of any of the dozen MFT lenses I use. Sometimes it struggles a tad at 1.2, but at 1.4 it will dial in quickly all day on the GH5. I needed to adjust my autofocus settings slightly, but once I got it set, It's really a dream to work with. The Sigma 30mm DN also does a fabulous job. For the $$, it's also worth considering.
