Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 ASPH. Lens Review


Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42 5mm F1 2 Asph (3)
This new prime lens for Micro Four Thirds system cameras sports a fast f/1.2 maximum aperture, Power Optical Image Stabilisation, Nano Surface anti-reflective coatings and a manual aperture ring. The 42.5mm focal length provides an angle of view equivalent to the classic 85mm focal length on a 35mm camera, which is considered ideal for portraiture. As this lens carries Leica branding, it is one of Panasonic's top of the range lenses, and it is priced accordingly. In this review, we'll take a look at how the lens performs and whether the £1340 price tag is justified.
