Nokton horsing around

nokton-horinsing3 nokton-horsing-2 nokton-horsing-4 nokton-horsing-5 horsing-1Last night we hade some heavy wind come in, our landlords flagpole and our tomatoes couldnt take it anymore.

Today we went horse trailer riding. Scary shits. I DONT trust those animals.

Funny when they yawn though 🙂


All shot wideopen, the horse with the 17.5 and the rest with the 42.5. With the Em-5

When you edit the pics from the Voigtländers you gotto be somewhat carful with the “clarity”. The somewhat  “busy” character of the bokeh in these lenses tend to be more apparent if you (like me)

prefer to push it quite a bit.

Its better to use clairity in selective ways rather then to use it across the entire frame, if you ask me that is…





Mixing Noktons Coffee break.

Took our bikes for a ride to the “view point” (we also had to walk and travel by farry) Great  day, great Coffee! Nice with some sun and warmth in the atumn gloom.

All but the one with the “springy thing” is whot wide open, the “springy thing” is shot at f5.6. Stoped down, The Noktons are flawless (“pretty much yeah”). Click the pictures and the topic will say “175” or “425” depending on the lens used. Sprayed away at 10fps to catch the guy on his moped. Luckaly he slowed down as he was passing, he pushed that thing to atleast 100kmh (im guessing) a little further down the road. Not just original parts i supose. 🙂

Other then that, nothing major to report. Tack sharp, nice bokeh. Awesome leneses.


Shot with Either Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 or Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 and Em-5. with either B+W UV and/or ND filters.




Nokton 425

hey-hey-hey-425-web bike-425-web ca2r-425-web car-425-web fishy-2-425-web fishy-4-web fishy-425-web


So here is finally a post, have been working for a few days and i havent worked up to shoting/posting. CA keeps accuring. But the most apparent thing i have noticed over the last few days is that there is alot less Coma then the 17.5mm has. and its definitely sharper aswell. Have had the CV 42.5mm f0.95 for 3weeks now? And its really awesome. Sure some CA, which i have been bitching about, that goes for both the 17.5 & 42.5.

Well, to sum up so far. Its sharp (even wideopen). slightly sharper then the 17.5, it has alot less coma then the 17.5. Colors are better (not alot), bokeh looks pretty much the same (good) its alittle smaler, 3D pop feeling is better. And on the down side? Well nothing really…


And about the images. Shot wideopen with the Em.5 + Nokton 42.5mm f0.95, hld6 (first part)

Got super lucky nailing that fish on the fly @f0.95. Took it at the weekly fishing competition in Torsång. Man those old men/ladies can haul some fish! The rest of the pics are shot at random places around “town”.




Foggy Nokton 42.5 stuff.

cv-42-web3 - Kopia bello-425-web cv-42-hood-web cv-42-web-2cv-42-web34Some shots from around the house. Foggy and not to apealing today. Im sure some great photo opportunities hade presented them self if i had gone. Buuuuuut, no. a Stroll around the house was enough, plus a shot of my new ski boots and of the CV Nokton 42.5 f0.95 with the hood. Witch i dont use so i havent really remembered to take a photo of it. But here it is. Looks better without i think. All but the one containing the 42.5mm is shot with the 42.5mm. the other one with 17.5mm all shot @0.95.


Vi ses.


Häj häj häj.

a Few casual Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 shots from today :)

Do you know what kind of brand the man has on his glasses. I had no idea befor i zoomed in as i was sharpening the picture in Lightroom (Ray-Ban right? 🙂 ). Pretty awesome how much detail the em-5 packs in to these 16mpix shots from the Voigtländer 42.5! Pretty desecent level of detail and sharpnes in the dog crop aswell.

It really makes the subjekts popp in the pictures, thats really the biggest benefit of FF (In my opinion) Sure u got higher light seneitivity,iso performance and all that. But what makes alot of the pictures beautiful is, the magic of “popp”. And the Noktons got “popp” (!)

Pretty good shooting situations in all these shots so no really much to complain about in these pics. I think the level of detail/sharpness is the subjekt for this post!


Well, laters!


Nokton mix.

olika-Nokton-175-web Olika-nokton-175-webb olika-Nokton-425-web olikaoxo175 olikaoxo-175-webb nokton-425-webb olika-175-web olika-425-webbMy computer have been packed with crap so i havent been able to load my photos to it, bought myself an external harddrive today. Got some shit out of the way!

So here is what managed to select out of the bunch. Its a little bit of both the 17.5mm and 42.5mm. Took these over the last couple of days, on my way to work, in a closed down and abandoned mental asylumn and some random driving around with my car photos. If youre wondering about the text, i started to add some lame text to easier show wich lens i used. But it just looked stupid, so i stoped. So now it looks even more stupid when there is just a few with text. Well well. Pic 1,2,4,5,7 is shot with 17.5mm and thus pic 3,6,8 is shot with 42.5mm.

The foucs ring on my 42.5 is alot slower to move around when im foucsing, i guess thats because its brand new? Dont reallt remember if the 17.5 was any slower new compared to how it is now.

The 42.5 keep devlivering tack sharp images with lots of detail, nice colors,beautiful bokeh and not much to whine about. There isnt really much to say on the bad part, sure it could have a little less CA, but already it does not have much of it. It could be a little sharper. But then i guess your eyes would bleed due the knife sharp images. The Noktons sure could weigh less, but with the weight loss i am pretty sure things like softness,distortion and coma will come along. So i feel the weight is ok to.

It does make the MFT system a little less atractive, Em-5 + oly 45mm 1.8 is alot lighter and a few cm smaler. But it can not produce the same images. “The best camera is the one you bring with you” And i bring this combo alot more often then i did my Pana 14mm f2.5 (55g) and Oly 45mm f1.8 (116g). So for me the extra 700-900 grams? (not shure about the weight difference) that differs from my old kit to my Nokton kit is totally worth it. But i will say that the extra 700g does not go un noticed. If you’re thinking about buying this lens, you should have the weight in mind aswell.

So for me. This is the best camera! I totally love the 17.5& 42.5 combo. the characteristics of the two differs quite alot and they deliver awesome images.


Not shure what the exact f-stop is on pic 2 (pretty shure labled it wrong with  the ugly text). but the rest is shot @f0.95 with:


Nokton 17.5mm f0.95 or Nokton 42.5mm f0.95

B+W ND4 or B+W ND8

Hld6. Awesome grip! (the “first” part of it) the secound part is kind of awkward.




Nokton 42.5 CA madness

nokton-425-ASD-ASD-asd-ca-webIn this shot (i have pushed saturations quite a bit) you can see some pretty heavy CA. Purple CA along the right upper side of the tree and some red-ish towards the lower part.

In the upper left you can see some green CA.

But this is prettymuch a nightmare situation i think, as far as CA is concerned. It does not bother me much, its pretty easy to delete or minimize in post.

But if this is your typical shooting situation and you dont want CA. Perhaps the 42.5mm f0.95 is  not for you.nokton-425-ASD-ASD-asd-8-webThis one is shot @0.95 and pretty close. So its got that crappy milky feel to it. It was even worse befor i rezised it for the blog. DOF is pretty much zero.

granny-nokton-42.5-web-1Here is another shot from the other day. Shot wideopen in some crappy garage. Avalible window light. Still sharp as blade! Awesome bokeh! When you get shots like these (“bokehlicious” shots like these) i dont regret switching from FF to MFT at all 🙂


Day 4, Nokton 42.5 “Vs” nokton 17.5

nokton-425-ASD-ASD-42.5 nokton-425-ASD-ASD-2-17.5Here is some sort of comparison between 2 shots, the top one taken with the CV Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 and the bottom taken with CV Nokton 17.5mm f0.95. I have edited both to the best of my abillity.

Color correction,CA, sharpness (i sharpened them equally). Well most things u usually edit. I have tried to make them as equal as possible. And as you can see, they dont differ much at all.

I got some feedback on flickr from a reader! (Yes apparently i atleast got one reader! or perhaps visitor is the correct term 🙂 ) It seems i have given the impression that the 17.5mm is not an awesome lens. And that was never my intention, nor is it the case!

The Nokton 17.5mm f0.95  is totally awesome! Sure it has CA, but so does everylens… if you pixelpeep these 2 images, the 42.5 is slightly sharper, now when cropped and sharpend, you cant tell them apart. The only apparent differens is the FOV (and some contrast on her face, the sun peeped out when i was shooting with the 42.5).

And that is almost all the diffrence there is. BUT the 42.5mm is to my eyes, sharper,has less CA and less distortion. When compared.

At the end of the day. Its not much to whine about, or perhaps nothing at all to whine about. The difference between the 17.5 and the 25 is alot bigger i think, but that is alot of guess work on my part, i have just shot a few pics with the 25. I think Sharpness is towards the low end of what is acceptable. (as far as i could tell from the little i used it) And by that i sharpness @ the biggest aperture. Stopped down they are pretty much flawless, that goes for the 25mm to i guess.

Hope this straighten things out!


Hej svejs.


2nd Day with the Voigtländer Nokton 42.5mm f0.95

nokton-42.5-web-6 nokton-42.5-web-7 VS-1 vs-2 nokton-42.5-web1 nokton-42.5-web-2 nokton-42.5-web-3 nokton-42.5-web-4So here are some more shots. And i know comparing a FF camera/lens to MFT camera/lens is like compareing apples and oranges.

The crops in the shots are not of the same size, and thats due to the differens in MP of the sensors, 21.1 vs 16 i think? And i had to stop down the Sigma to get ~equal dof. (f1.9 would have been better..)

The sigma appears a tiny bit sharper, and that is stopped down (wideopen its not) and thanks to the bigger sensor. Well thats about as far im prepared to go in to that discussion.

Have a look at the pictures and make up your own mind as what combo you would prefer.

My empression so far? Well, its not going to come of my Om-d for some time i am guessing. I totally love it, i love the 17.5mm aswell.

The 17.5 has somewhat wideangle wich makes it a bit harder to shoot with. but when you get it right, it is right.

When you get it right the same goes for the 42.5. But with the 42.5 you can take a dump right where your standing. Then take a picture of it, and its going to look awesome.

Its not quite that easy with the 17.5 even though its awesome.

(but thats my opinion when it comes to most quality 35&85mm FF equivalent lenses. 35mm looks better but is harder to shoot with, due to the wider angle)


More updates later.


Ja mata!
