17mm f0.95


Have you ever sat there and literally drooled over an announcement? Well according to 43Rumors, Voigtlander just announced a 17.5mm f0.95; which equates to 35mm f0.95. The company already makes the very highly regarded 25mm f0.95 lens, and this is the one that I’m personally lusting after. I’m married to my Canon 35mm f1.4 L, and as my favorite focal length this has got to have Micro Four Thirds users excited everywhere. Complete with clickless aperture (excellent for video), it will also have a 58mm filter thread size. That’s about the size of the front end of a Canon 50mm f1.4. In reality, that may mean that this lens may actually be kind of big on a Micro Four Thirds camera body.

If you convert the Euros over to American, it will run you around $1704.93.
