The Nokton 17.5mm lens is part of a series of Voigtländer lenses for the Micro Four-Thirds system, and all lenses in the series has an amazingly large aperture (f0.95). This means the lens has superb light gathering abilities which makes it ideal for low-light shooting. In terms of depth of field, the lens at f0.95 is roughly equivalent to a full frame 35mm lens with f2 aperture, so the lens can be used as a standard lens for typical street photography applications.
This is first look at the specs, the exterior and the initial impression of the lens. Stay tuned for a more detailed review and sample pictures taken with this lens!
