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.

More PanaLeica 42.5mm f/1.2 lens tests and sample images surfaced over the Pentax Forums. The lens mounted on a OM-D E-M5 shooter. More sample images and aperture tests can be seen here.

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.
