| p.1 #1 · PanaLeica 42.5mm f/1.2 Nocticron |
Haven't seen this mentioned here. In addition to the GX7 announcement, Panasonic also announced (officially) the 42.5mm f/1.2. It's officially a Leica branded lens, and Leica has apparently moved the "Noctilux" name to mean f/1 and faster and reapportioned f/1.2 to be a new moniker of "Nocticron." Not sure how I feel about that name, but it makes sense within the f/2 and faster naming convention, so I'm sure I'll eventually get used to it. (Summicron - f/2, Summilux, f/1.4, Nocticron, f/1.2, Noctilux f/1 and lower).
The lens looks like the construction is closer to Leica build than typical Panasonic build...has the Leica look and appears to be all metal with an aperture ring (interesting). I'd imagine this'll be a pretty darn good lens considering how good the other PL lenses for m4/3 are.
