    In many places on the web, I see the new Nokton being referred to as "huge" or "humongous". Here it is (4th from the left) next to some other lenses:

    Not a huge lens by my standards, though it is heavy.

    seeing all those lenses mount side down with no rear caps on sends my OCD into overdrive

    You are right Amin, does not look to big!:thumbup:

    BTW, what lens is the one on the far right? Is Campbell the new kid on the :43: scene?

    That's how I store them and carry them around. Rear caps take up too much space :biggrin:.

    It is a large lens for me and what I want to do. And it definitely is large when compared to the 20/1.7. And large in the $ category for some of us.

    Which is why I hope for a 25/1.4 one day from Panasonic and/or Voightlander.

    However the results I have seen may make me change my mind over time. Especially if the price drops.

    Is that chicken soup for the photographers soul?

    Hows the one on the far right for CA and fringing?

    Also you've left the lens hood off the Voigtlander which is a bit large.
    But you're quite right it isn't that big, though as you say quite heavy.

    I'm not sure that will be cheap.

    David, I really like the 45-200. CA and fringing are automatically addressed in my workflow (Panasonic camera, Lightroom 3), so I can't specifically address those. I think it's an underrated lens.

    Do the soup tin come in :43: mount, or do you have to use an adapter?

    (sorry, the soup jokes need to stop)

    I envy your lens collection Amin:thumbup:

    I thought I was the only one! :eek: 

    Amin, do you mind posting a photo of the Nokton mounted on your GF-1? It definitely doesn't look too big, unless compared directly to the 20mm. *Edit - nevermind, I found the Nokton porn thread with a picture of it on a GF-1. :redface:

    I have two of these (20mm and 45mm) and plan to get three more (7-14, 25, and 45-200), so it's nice to see them all lined up like this.

    I agree, but am hoping it comes in under $500. But from what I have seen of the Voightlander 25/0.95 a $400-$500 25/1.4 lens from them could be very nice and I think a reasonable target.

    Any ideas when this lens would be available? I am very tempted on this one for sure.

    In Duesseldorf, Germany I had the opportunity to 'play' a bit with the lens. Impressive! The focus ring has this special creamy and soft-resistant feeling as the best Leica lens which I owned: the 50mm Summilux in black paint.
    It's not easy to describe but when you feel it you would know.

    Peter Lück, a german photographer kicks off his X1 because his Pen E-PL1 and the Noktor is his dream combination....

    His pics are impressive, but be careful, he is very good with every cam......:wink:

    Even though you probably won't need it, does it cause flash shadow? :p
