My 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.
