Voigtländer has announced a new Nokton 10.5mm f0.95 lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. In terms of full frame equivalency the lens offers a nice and wide 21mm equivalent focal length. What’s more–users will be able to get up close with their subject at 17-centimeters (about 6-inches) taking full advantage of all the bokeh that f0.95 lens creates; though we’re still sure that it won’t be very much.

ePhotoZine got a chance to play with the lens and it was thoroughly impressed with the lens’ sharpness and straight lines despite being a wide-angle prime. With the lens being made up of 13 elements in 10 groups, there are undoubtedly more than a few aspherical lenses to help reduce distortion.

The lens is reportedly due to be released sometime in 2015, however, Voigtländer has yet to announce a price. We can’t wait to get this lens in for a full review and until then check past the break for more specs on the Voigtländer Nokton 10.5mm f0.95.
