Amazing video...somehow I gotta believe it would have been very similar with other fast 50mm lenses. The guy behind the camera counts for a lot! Thanks for posting, Amin.

Well, the Noktor is cheaper and smaller than the Nokton. But please have mercy Amin. Your shots on the Pany 7-14 image thread is the reason I now own one... :wink:

its promising , but more than i wished to spend , i wonder how many stops faster 0.95 is
over 1.2 is 1\2 a stop a full stop????

frankly i wish someone would make fast 12 f2 or 1.8 for 500 bucks

Assuming that the manufacturer is giving you the correct numbers to work with, you can solve that question by calculating:

((log(1.2))/(log(sqrt(2))) - ((log(0.95))/(log(sqrt(2)))

You can substitute the numbers in bold for any f-stops you want (putting the slower lens first), copy it to Google as a search, and Google will give you the answer. In this case, the answer is roughly 0.67 stops.

Thanks for posting Amin, I'll stick with my 57mm f1.2 for now :biggrin:
