Seb has long been my inspiration towards the m43 system, c-mounts, and just shooting your kids when you can.

Here is a great GH2/Nokton F0.95 video shot in Vietnam under many daylight/night light conditions:

Re: GH2 video shot @ F0.95 !

It's nice Joe, but at effective 50mm the lens is much too susceptible for jitter, IMO for walking shots. There is a difference between the handheld look and jittery footage, and some of your footage is very jittery. It is not avoidable with the 25mm on the GH2, I know, but it is not a good look, IMO.

Try using your 20mm and see what happens; you'll lose some jitter, and if you miss the softness of the Nokton you can alway soften the F/1.7 in post, though I know it wouldn't be the same.

Jeff, I was under the impression that the lens was made for micro 4/3 rigs and therefore has no crop factor. This is true 25mm. Am I wrong?

Awesome image, Joe. Thanks.

I don't think Joe's trying to pass off others' work as his own, just showing us what the very famous Nokton is capable of rendering.

Chad, 25mm lens, no matter what it's made for will still be 50mm effective on the GH2.

The 25mm F0.95 is as sharp or sharper than 20mm F1.7 @ F2 or slower and between F2 and F4 it's sharper than any other lens that I seen tested on Lenstip.


Voigtlander Nokton 25mm F0.95 Image resolution

Panasonic G 20 mm f/1.7 ASPH. Image resolution

If you want steady video with the 25mm then the Steadicam Merlin will do it.

BTW the Vimeo videos above were shot by Seb Farges and Leon Visser without any Steadicam and I thought they did a good job keeping the image steady. I am sure the much wider Oly 12mm F2 would work much better for a steady image and if the new Panasonic 12-35mm X lens with OIS is an F2 lens that would be great but I think it would be an F2.8.

Re: GH2 video shot @ F0.95 !

Joe, yeah the videos cool and stuff, but as said, too shaky for my taste. There's the trendy camera movement common in many videos and television, and even hollywood films, and it does add to realism, but uncontrolled jitter is a different to me, and that's what too many of the shots seemed to have. Whatever, not important.

Anyway, after reading your post, I took a look around at more info about the lens, it's clear Panasonic really is not in the same league, and my statement was really inaccurate. I happened to not like many of the videos I've seen in the past shot with the 25mm that I've seen, but after your comment I went looking for more reviews and saw some amazing photos, they were stunning. The 20mm could never come close to what I saw produced by the Voightlander.

For video, it would be, I imagine, a very difficult lens to work with, hence the reason I've not seen much video shot with it that I cared for. It would be an interesting lens for wedding work for sure, but tough to maintain focus with a moving subject, for sure. At least it would be for me.
