Uwe, you constantly amaze me.

I've never encountered anyone who can transform ordinary subjects into extraordinary art as well as you do.

My compliments, Sir.

Welcome to the forum. I moved your post to this thread where the Nokton is already being discussed.

Re: Fun with the m43 Voigtlaender 25mm f/0.95 lens

Hi 好傻好天真
(Any suggestion for what we can call you using the common English alphabet? If nothing else just a way to pronounce 好傻好天真?)

Thank you for the images.

I eBayed my copy of the CV25 earlier this week. My old eyes wish for calm and soft bokeh. Your images show to me one has to take a close look at the background when using the CV25 wide open (and sometimes at f/1.4 and f/2 as well). Even gentle highlights will show a certain degree of coma (if that's the right word) and highlights get etchy. This is not right or wrong in my opinion, just the way it is.

Are you happy with the bokeh and other aspects of the lens?

regards,

Jonas

Hi... SN

I had a look at your gallery and the travel images. I don't think you are super naive. There were some interesting images (and you have been to a couple of countries I still haven't visited).

Welcome to the forum,

Jonas

On DPR, there are a number of haters that will target any product that is not a Canon full frame camera or L-series lens. I suspect the majority of the haters drive Chevrolet or Toyota, eat Big Mac or Kentucky Fried Chicken Substance (KFCS) and mostly drink Coke. If you look inside their brains, you will find that it consists of the same chemicals that make Big Mac and KFCS resemble food.

Re: Fun with the m43 Voigtlaender 25mm f/0.95 lens

@DHart: thanks! Let it rain
@ZoranC: agreed. Read a nonsensical review about it on stevehuff the other day, comparing apples and oranges. The plus side of this is it will help lower the price
of this amazing lens.

Let's just hope Cosina will keep on inventing bold lenses that do push the envelop.

I have read Mr Babsky article and while I do agree it is nonsensical and not biased I feel it is still slanted by his personal point of view. Here is why:

1. Mr Babsky talks how one can skin the cat of background blur differently, by going with longer focal lengths. Yeah, I know that and I have such lenses, but what do I do when it is 50mm EFL FOV and/or certain "speed" that I want or need? Can't use that then, it's Nokton that pulls it off.

2. Mr Babsky talks 3 times in a row about sharpness under negatives (see below). Well, doesn't that matter _only_ if all person cares about is sharpness?

Quote:
– It’s sharp stopped down, but not at its very widest and simultaneously its closest – for $900

– The genuine f0.95 ‘Noctilux’ is -w-a-y- sharper than this at 0.95 (..but costs $10,000)

– At closest focus you’re lucky to get anything really sharp unless stopped down to f2.8, so why pay for f0.95?
3. Mr Babsky says:

Quote:
– Any 2nd-hand full-frame 50mm wide aperture lens + adaptor can give similar results for less cash
I disagree and I find it not making sense because first, let's not compare apples to oranges by comparing prices of used gear to prices of new gear.

Second, even if agreed to apples to oranges price of used D500 with used 50/1.4 G is still more than price of new m43 body with Nokton. Quite used D700 (please correct me if I am wrong) goes for approximate $1750. 50/1.4 G lets say $300, so we are looking at total over $2K. m43 body with Nokton is at least $500 less.

Last, but far from least, and that point seems to be lost on many reviewer, quite a few of m43 users became m43 users because they wanted to go _away_ from huge and heavy DSLR and have accepted compromises in IQ to achieve that.

So to tell full frame can achieve these results is missing a critical point that we do NOT want that huge DSLR with us, otherwise we wouldn't have bought m43.


I _have_ full frame body and I do have fast 50mm lens, but I would have been crazy to lug that around with me on a fun date last weekend. On the other hand EP2 with Nokton was acceptable (even though my girlfriend sometimes thinks I was still crazy anyway), and it still allowed me to get this shot of our table without getting up from a chair interfering with other tables or waiters or intruding into privacy of people opposite us or bothering everyone with flash.

Re: Fun with the m43 Voigtlaender 25mm f/0.95 lens

One little detail I'd like to mention:
when taking macro shots, motion blur gets really amplified.
By combining the in-body image stabilisation of the Olympus E-P2 with the faster than usual aperture (and therefore higher shutter speed) I was able to shoot everyting hand-held. No problem!
