Four outside the museum

Shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 lens

I can't remember if this was shot at f/0.95. The Voigtlander is a full manual lens with no electrical parts. So there's no EXIF data.

This was stitched with 5 photos.

I used a GF1 on tripod. And even so it's pretty challenging to get the shot.

It's not easy to use this lens on a camera with no viewfinder because it's heavy and difficult to hold still.

There's CA and strong vignetting.

The shallow depth of field is tricky to control. If you don't get the focus right, you're going to see either the purple or green CA.

The lens is soft at f/0.95, which is not surprising if you've used the other two Voigtlander, 17.5mm and 25mm.

Overall, it's more challenging to use this compared to the other Voigtlander f/0.95 lens. At the effective field of view 85mm, you need to shoot at a fast shutter speed to compensate your handshake. In this regard, maybe this lens would be more suitable for use on an Olympus EM1 as compared to Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras especially if it's handheld.
