It’s time to blur everything…. The new Voigtländer Nokton 25mm lens is amazing and available to hire with our Panasonic AF101 – below is a frame grab direct from the camera with no post production at all

For some time now we’ve been a little obsessed with depth of field and blurring backgrounds most of this addiction has been in post production using Red Giant Magic bullet and a great plug-in from NewBlue.

But now with the Voigtlander’s Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens which has an extraordinarily wide maximum aperture of f/0.95 we really can achieve that filmic look directly in the camera. This new lens really does create some striking imagery and it works well with our Sony EX3 and Panasonic AF101

To be honest it’s hard to get that excited over a lens and we appreciate this hasn’t been a very informative or techy blog – but what we can say is this lens will be superb for interviews and close-up work and we look forward to another year of obsessive blurring  (I know it’s not healthy)
