50mm F0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens is Coming from Noktor

According to PhotoRumors.com via 43rumors, we should be expecting to see a new 50mm F0.95 lens for Micro Four Thirds. This will be the equivalent of a 100mm field of view. That means that the cameras will be able to shoot basically in the dark and shouldn’t have to suffer from the problems that plague the cameras at higher ISO settings. Noktor is a company that can be followed on Twitter, but when one goes to their website, there isn’t much. Either way, I’m excited to see what comes out. That means that cameras like the EP-2 and GF-1 will be able to shoot almost in the dark. Additionally, the GH1 will be able to shoot amazing video using native lenses.

Words cannot describe my excitement right now.

UPDATE: A commentor on PhotoRumor’s posting linked us to the possible origins of the lens. Here’s the Google Translation. Notice that the lens attached to the camera though says SchneiderKreuznach.
