New Noktor f/0.95 lens for Micro Four Thirds

Some readers (hit the comments section for more links) have already noted that this lens is probably based on an existing f/0.95 lens for CCTV made by different manufacturers:

Details are still sketchy. Here are some info captured by Google Cache:

  • With a maximum aperture of F/0.95, the Noktor Hyperprime is the fastest lens designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras (no adapter needed). At open aperture, the lens renders pictures and video with extreme shallow depth of field for a unique aesthetic.
  • Extreme Low-light Shooting.
  • In low-light photography and cinematography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. From nightscapes to campfires, now you can shoot in situations that are often impossible to capture with a normal lens.
