I was thrilled when this lens came out. This is a pricey lens so I did lots of research before deciding to get one.

This lens is perhaps the sturdiest lens even for the Micro Four Thirds system. It's full metal body is built like a tank, but all that metal puts the weight at 410g. Regardless of your camera body, it's going to be front heavy.

The lens cap can be a bit loose. It can come off accidentally if you hit the latch. Mine dropped while I was crossing the road as I hit my hand against it. Luckily there's no traffic and I managed to pick it up. Just be careful of the lens cap.

On the lens are the aperture ring and manual focus ring.

The aperture ring starts at f/0.95 and increases by half a stop incrementally until f/16. The ring is firm but easy to turn.

This is a fully manual lens. There's no auto-focus. There's also no electrical contacts so camera would be getting any EXIF data like aperture size, or lens type, but you still get shutter speed and other camera readings.

Using manual focus, I think, requires a shift in mindset, especially if you're used to auto-focus. I took a while to get used to it but it's not too bad. You can zoom in easily using the MF Assist mode to make sure you get a clear shot. Actually even without zooming in, it's not difficult to know that the subject is focus.

When you fix the lens on, the camera will find the right exposure for you given the aperture chosen. You can then change the exposure or aperture manually.

The main advantage of this lens is the incredible f/0.95 aperture. This is the lens to go to if you need to get low light shots.

The performance at f/0.95 isn't top notch, unfortunately.

This lens is a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system seller (at least, it did it for me).

First, if you really like autofocus and find manual focus intimidating or in general, a drawback, then the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Leica DG Summilux Aspherical Lens for Micro 4/3 System is probably a better choice.

From photozone reviews, the Leica seems to be sharp wide open, but doesn't get much sharper when stopped down. Vignetting is more pronounced than on the Nokton. The Nokton gets to be sharper than the Leica when stopped down and is a bit more than a stop faster (lets twice as much light through at f/0.95 than the Leica at f/1.4, which means that shutter speeds can be twice as fast - an important advantage in low light).

Voigtlander lenses are produced by Cosina, who also produces the modern Zeiss lenses for DSLRs. Their manufacturing is impeccable - these are some of the best built lenses you can find these days. This Nokton is no exception. It comes well packaged in moulded foam. The lens comes with nice front and rear caps and also with a hood that has its own cap. It is entirely built from metal - there is no plastic, not even rubber on the focusing ring. The focusing ring has a nice ribbed design reminiscent of the Takumars. The aperture ring clicks very smoothly in half stop increments, but can also be set between clicks if you desire so. The Nokton was built to the highest standards and it is a pleasure to handle.

Optically, it works amazingly well. It sharpens very fast when stopped down, but what I really like is how usable it is at f/0.95.

This is a great lens. For the price it obviously should be. I am not going to rehash the optical and build characteristics as the top reviewer did an outstanding job of that. The only thing I didn't see mentioned was the purple fringing a bright light sources at wide open apertures. This is common for fast lenses and can be fixed in post. With all of that said, this is a speciality lens. Since it is manual focus, a great application is for shooting video in very low light situations. This would be a difficult low light street shooting lens because of the manual focus and heavy weight. A better option is the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4. That lens is a little over 1 stop slower than this one but the autofocus makes it better in that application. Other reviewers have mentioned the soft corners. All fast lenses are soft in the corners (even the $12K Leica 50 f/.95) and that is part of their charm. Most of the time I am trying to blur or vignette the corners anyway so this aids in that process. Also, this lens has a very smooth and pleasing bokeh which make it nice for shooting group portraits. This is especially nice in your average poorly lit home. The other thing that is nice with this lens is it very close focusing distance 17cm. With this you can get some exceedingly shallow depth of field.

For most people the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5, Panasonic 25mm f/1.4(or 20mm f/1.7) and Olympus 45mm f/1.8 offer more versatility for the same price as this lens alone. However, if you are looking for the look of a f/.95 then this lens is a must have.
