When Voigtlander/Cosina released the first 25mm f0.95, the Micro Four Thirds world began to drool. And today, the company has updated the lens according to 43Rumors. The new version does what the 17.5mm f0.95 did–added the option of making the lens de-clicked for video shooting. On the lens, there is another ring right above the aperture ring. This ring can be pulled back and twisted. When it is in one position, the aperture clicks for photographers. In the other position, it becomes clickless.
So for the same price, Voigtlander is trying to make this lens more viable to videographers. Though at the moment, the older version seems to be quite discounted to under $1,000.
When we reviewed the 17.5mm f0.95, we fell in love with it. Indeed, it is still my favorite lens for the Micro Four Thirds system.
