Panasonic has announced the Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 lens for micro four thirds cameras back in August, 2013. We have already posted several images of the Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 lens mounted on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 compact system camera.
Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 Lens Tests and Sample Images
From the forum post :
It’s quite large and heavy. Bokeh is great for m43. Seems very sharp wide open, though there’s a loss of contrast. Also confirmed that the aperture ring works on Panasonic bodies, but not Olympus. I assume this can be fixed with a firmware update.
The new Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 lens is the fastest auto focus interchangeable lens in the Micro Four Thirds standard for the LUMIX G Series cameras.
There is no price and availability information announced for the Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 lens. The lens expected to be released at the CP+ show in February.
