This one’s been anticipated for a while now, with lots of hushed talk and whispers whenever its name was mentioned. But it’s finally official. Cosina has now announced the new super-bright aperture Voigtlander NOKTON 60mm f/0.95mm lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras.
On the Micro Four Thirds cameras for which it is intended, it offers a field of view equivalent to that of 120mm focal length on a full-frame body. As such, it’s designed primarily for portraits, and should offer a look with depth of field similar to something like the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 Art, but with a slightly tighter field of view. Of course, it has an extra stop and a bit of brightness over f/1.4 for shooting in lower light conditions or at lower ISO to reduce noise.
