Some random shots, iwe mostly  been shooting video for a new bike film lately.

So not much photos is showing up here  ;/

Stumbledupon my neighbor doing some forest trimming the other day, and my habanero plant on the way out in the forest.

The habanero: Em5 + Nokton 17.5mm f095 @095 (with ND4)

The man and bike : Em5 + Nokton 42.5mm f095 @095 (with ND4)

Laters.

Nokton 42,5mm f0.95 is singing in the rain!

Em5 with the Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 @f0.95, hand held.

Not easy shooting a running horse with manual focus and f0.95 😛

Got a couple of frames right though. Moore then i anticipated 🙂

Laters!

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!

So the Voigtländer Nokton 42.5mm f0.95 just arrived today! Totaly Stoked!

And i have to say, so far it has exceeded my expectations. Compared to the Nokton 17.5mm its better in everyway. Sharper,less distortion,less CA. to name a few.

These are only my first impressions, as i said i got it earlier today.

And as you can see in the pictures above, there are plenty of CA in some situations. Around text in shot 1 and the camera in shot 7.

But its sharp! as you can see in picture 1. The text in that shot is not big, and its readable. with some highpass in PS and some CA correction that would look awesome i think.

Focus is smooth as it is on the 17.5mm, its got the same feel to it as far as handling goes.

Colors are alot better in the 42.5, compared to the 17.5 and so is bokeh, but not as big difference as i believe the colors are.

In shot 6 ithink you see some sort distortion, again, not as much as in the 17.5.

And the ability to isolate subjects comes alot closer to that FF feel that you, perhaps same as me, feel you are missing ever since you switched to MFT. The noktons, atleast the 17.5 and the 42.5 will get you alot closer to that. Havent used the 25mm much, but from the very little i have used it, it seemed to be alot less sharp then these 2 badasses.

 

Settings and gear info:

OM-D Em-5 + HLd6 + Voigtländer Nokton 42.5mm f0.95

Pic Nr :6 shot @f8 with B+W ND110 and B+W ND8 60 sec shutter

The rest is shot wideopen (f0.95 ! 🙂 ) with either no filter, B+W ND4 or B+W ND8.

 

Well thats all for now, gotto get back out there befor the sun goes down!

ill post some more shots as soon as i can!

 

(and for those who will scroll down and look at my previous post shot with the 17.5mm, they will look sharpeer because i have shaprend them more

not because the lens is sharper, i thought i would try and demonstrate the “actuall” sharpness of the 42.5mm here.)

 

Laters.
