SLR Magic Noktor 12mm f/1.6 lens for Micro Four Thirds

I just received some more details and samples of the SLR Magic Noktor 12mm f/1.6 lens for Micro Four Thirds:

  • 12mm wide angle
  • f/1.6 max aperture (best performance is at f/4)
  • ~2% distortion (optical distortion correction for natural perspective when taking photos of people)
  • 0.15m minimum focus distance
  • 12 step-less aperture blades for always round aperture opening like a cinema lens for better compatibility with GH2 and AF-100
  • Depth of field scale included
  • $499 MSRP
  • Shipping will start around the end of October 2011

SLR Magic is working also on a new 12-36×50 ED sporting scope for Micro Four Thirds. The stand alone SLR Magic 12-36×50 ED spotting scope should be released in October (price $250) and SLR Magic 12-35×50 ED sporting scope for Micro Four Thirds should be released in November (price: $400).

    What does ‘stepless aperture blades’ mean in this context? No click-stops on the aperture ring? Presumeably this lens is full manual and there’s no body control of aperture…
