Cosina unveils the new Voigtlander Nokton 60mm F0.95 telephoto lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens is designed specifically for the MFT camera system and has an EGF of 120mm and an incredible aperture value of 0.95.
Such a large aperture allows you to shoot in extremely low light conditions. It is also an ideal lens for using beautiful bokeh when the aperture is fully open.
In the optical design of the lens are 11 elements in 8 groups, developed using the latest optical theory. The telephoto lens allows you to shoot at a distance of 34cm and has a viewing angle of 21.5°. A 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Additionally, the lens also sports the Selective Aperture Control System, which permits switching between a stepless, de-clicked aperture selection method to suit video applications and a traditional aperture control method with click stops.
Voigtlander Nokton 60mm F0.95 has a maximum diameter of 82.5 mm and a length of 87.7 mm. The size of the filter is 77 mm and its weight is 860 g. A metal hood is included in the kit.
