    Fun with the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH

    I already know this is going to be a favorite lens of mine. First snaps with my son Philip, all at f/1.2:

    Damn! I thought I would be able to postpone this lens for a few months. You destroyed it, Amin. Great shots

    Excellent shots. The lens looks like it may be well worth considering.

    Superb portraits Amin! A ch1p off the old block by the look of him!
    This lens look like a no brainer if serious about portraiture.
    Cheers, Dave

    Very sharp wide open. Amazing! Bokeh is a bit choppy. Still would love to have this in my kit. Gotta justify the cost though..... Hmmm.......

    Wow. Seeing all of this has me re-thinking some of my other camera upgrades (GX7 or GH4, or both? and some Nikon DSLR upgrades due to age/shutter count) and some of my other Panasonic Lens choices I was considering this year.

    The only lenses I knew that I wanted/needed was the 15mm 1.7 and one of the Voightlander 0.95 Lenses.

    Decisions, and penny counting to come! :P

    my first upload shot with the Nocti on E-M1, shot at 1.2. Lens is 2 days old

    P2210404

    Wonder whats the ratio of E-M1 users with Nocti vs Gh4 with Nocti.
