Kosta - really nice images. The Nokton is an incredible lens. I really like its subtle "glow". I'll be traveling with mine the middle of next week and really look forward to using to it.
Have a nice holiday season.

thought i'd add some "christmas" pics - a bit of an abstract kind of look at christmas things:

I'm on a list for one and the delivery is in transit from Cosina. For those that have had theirs for a while what do you think of the MF capabilities paired with a GF-1?

Does the lens go to MF assist when you focus or do you have to use the thumb wheel to get there?

I ask because I'm considering giving up my place on the list, but can't make up my mind.

As far as I know there are no electronic contacts on the lens, so you'd have to call up the MF assist yourself.

I believe its only manual-manual-focus assist :p

It's a great lens, but if you want a portable package go with the panny 20mm instead. this lens is more than the weight of the camera!

This is a lens that I would generally use wide open, to take advantage of the bright aperture and make good use of the shallow depth of focus it brings to the m4/3 format. Otherwise, much less costly lenses can serve similarly well. I have a closely related Voigtlander lens which gives similar optical qualities, albeit one that's a little more expensive... the Nokton 35mm f/1.2 Aspherical. I bought it primarily to serve as a very shallow depth of focus portrait lens (70mm f/1.2 equiv.) for my m4/3 kit. All of the super fast lenses suffer a bit of contrast loss and sharpness loss when shot wide open, but that's where their dramatic quality can best be achieved and the contrast can be regained in post and, to a lesser degree, the sharpness as well.

Hope it's ok to add an image from a close brother to this lens, the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2 Aspherical...

Shot with a GH2 @ f/1.2
