shallow flower

iso 100 f1.0 for 1/1600 sec.

The close focusing capability (5.9 inch minimum focus distance) and extremely large aperture of the Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 Nokton lens allows for a very shallow depth of field (DOF). The ability to create a shallow DOF with a relatively wide angle lens is most welcome for users of the micro 4/3 camera system, whose sensors (and their innate 2x crop factor) usually make shallow DOF difficult to achieve unless using a much longer focal length. This is a blessing and a curse as having such a wide aperture also makes it relatively difficult to focus manually, but you also have the ability to capture images that would be impossible to capture with a slower lens. I will be posting more pictures from the Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm in the next few days, so stay tuned. Also, feel free to comment below.
