Default Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens

Talk about a light gathering lens, fantastic as well as the price.

How about that.....B&H actually has it in-stock now . They had been out of stock on that lens for so long I had quit looking.

Here's a nice review that was done right after it came out..

Take a look at this one if 25 maybe isn't quite wide enough at f0.95..

I know people having kittens about that one. 35mm equivalent, at f0.95. Geez. My guess is, it will probably be even more expensive than the 25.

I could never ever be able to justify spending $1200 on a lens, no matter how good it is. I must be in bad financial shape

I'm in the same boat you're in. With my present photographic skills I probably wouldn't see the difference, but I'll never be able to prove that. I've seen shots taken by Greg, Bob, etc with standard, inexpensive M43 lenses that look great to me.

Perhaps if I were a professional photographer charging mega bucks to cover a wedding I would greatly benefit from such a fast lens (and consequently be bale to justify the investment). However, I'm not a pro and the m4/3 lenses I have are plenty good enough for me!
