Having just spent £800 on one lens for a camera that I do not have yet may seem a bit ludicrous but I want to be set up for the Panasonic AF101 when it ships later this month.

Remember all of you who are thinking of buying the AF101 it does not come with a lens so your options are…

Micro 4/3″

4/3″ to Micro 4/3″ using a Panasonic DMW-MA1 adaptor

Nikon to Micro 4/3″ adaptor from MTF (From stock)

PL to Micro 4/3″ adaptor from MTF (From stock)

Canon to micro 4/3″ wireless adaptor (Still in production)

You are not stuck for choice and I can vouch that the Panasonic 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 lens is very sharp indeed. The 25mm Nokton has a certain appeal and remember although this is a 25mm lens on a Micro 4/3″ you can double the focal length so rather than being 25mm it’s actually 50mm.

I took some test shots with the 25mm Nokton on a Panasonic G2 to let you see how it performs at different aperture settings, this would have the same effect used on the AF101. Firstly as with most lenses of this type you are pushing the boundaries at f0.95 though the “bokeh” or the amount of blur is exceptional though even at f2.8 Dill the dog has a lovely shallow depth of field.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Have you seen the Noktor F0.95 Hyperprime 50mm lens for the micro 4/3 cameras? It seems like it would go well with the 25mm
