Voigtlander releases new Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds lens 0

It looks like the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system is gradually gaining traction in the camera industry as lens makers are now joining the race for the said category.

Aside from Tokina, who recently released the new 400mm f/8 and 300mm f/6.3 mirror lenses, Voigtlander also announced a new Micro Four Thirds lens: the Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95.

This is not the first MFT lens by Voigtlander as they already have the 25mm f/0.95 Nokton lens, which was released last year.
