First Look at the Leica \ Panasonic DG Nocticron 42.5 f/1.2 Lens

The video above shot by the guys at What Digital Camera had a chance to play a bit with the new Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 f/1.2 during the CES 2014 show which ended a few days ago.

The Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 f/1.2 is currently the fastest AF lens for Micro 4/3 and it also includes Panasonic’s image stabilization which makes it even more suitable for shooting in low light.

The Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 f/1.2 isn’t the cheapest micro 4/3 lens around, it will actually be sold for $1600 (you can pre-order it from B&H), but if you need a very high quality lens for low light photography – this one is definitely worth checking out.
