    Hot! After the superb Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Cosina just (officially!) announced the new Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95! The German press release is online at Photoscala (click here to read the horrible google translation). The main difference with the 25mm version is that the aperture ring can be switched from “Click stops” to “Clickless stops” using the ring in the front of the aperture ring. That’s perfect for video use! And the lens should have a superb bokeh too! That beauty is priced at 1299 Euro and will be ship in March. And here are the specs:

    17.5 mm with F0.95, this is very attractive spec. I am wondering will the lens able to retain good DOF during wide open aperture ? Very tempting......

    At 35mm with manual focus at such huge aperture.. The practicality of it beats me.. It's a not here not there lens

    Even wide open - for a lens that wide - can you expect a shallow DOF?
