Cosina Japan reveals its ultra-fast Voigtlander Super Nokton 29mm F0.8 lens for MFT systems

Cosina Japan has announced the Super Nokton 29mm F0.8 Aspherical lens for Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera systems, making it the fastest functional and commercially-available lens on the market.

The entirely manual lens, which offers an equivalent focal length of a 58mm lens on a full-frame camera, is constructed of 11 elements in 7 groups, including a ground aspherical element. The lens features an aperture range of F0.8 to F16, a twelve-blade aperture diaphragm, an all-metal helicoid unit for driving the manual focus and has a dedicated de-click switch for making the aperture adjustment silent for when shooting video.

Below are a number of sample images provided by Cosina:

The Voigtlander Super Nokton 28mm F0.8 Aspherical lens will retail for roughly $2,100 when it becomes available to pre-order in December.
