    I've been tempted to get this lens, but it's bigger and heavier than my Nokton 50mm f1.1. :eek: Very nice however.

    Cheers

    Ray, the 35/1.2 is skinnier. But yes, longer and heavier. But it looks good on the E-P2 :)

    It does look good, but the only thing visually out of place is the lens hood. Crickle cut is so yesterday. :biggrin: I have my eye on the 12mm at the moment.

    Cheers

    Ha ha, so true. I need to find a small metal lens hood for it. The 12mm Heliar is very nice! I believe it's supplied hood is crinkled too :)

    Cheers,

    Sabesh,

    Thx Ray! However, I'm looking for a bayonet mount hood, which will be harder to find. I like to use clear filters on my lenses. And when one of these eBay hoods are screwed on, they don't look good.

    You are right, the new Heliar (v2) has no crinkle hood. The old one does:

    Love those test shots Sabesh! It seemed that your cat, after seeing you take great shots of your wife, didn't want to lose so she posed herself :)

    We need some more images representing this awesome lens! Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2 Aspherical.

    I bought this lens specifically to use mostly as a portrait lens giving very shallow depth of focus and
    strong subject isolation with the m4/3 format. At 70mm f/1.2 (35mm equiv.) it is great as a portrait
    lens. No portraits here, just some images from my first day of playing with the lens.

    These were all shot at f/1.2 with a GH2.
