About this book
The lens is generally the most expensive and least understood part of any camera. In this book, Rudolf Kingslake traces the historical development of the various types of lenses from Daguerre's invention of photography in 1839 through lenses commonly used today.From an early lens still being manufactured for use in low-cost cameras to designs made possible through such innovations as lens coating, rare-earth glasses, and computer aided lens design and testing, the author details each major advance in design and fabrication. The book explains how and why each new lens type was developed, and why most of them have since been abandoned. This authoritative history of lens technology also includes brief biographies of several outstanding lens designers and manufacturers of the past.

Voigtländer 50mm f/1.1 Nokton Review - Ken Rockwell
The Voigtländer 50mm f/1.1 lens for LEICA is poor. It's very soft and has poor bokeh at the larger apertures — as judged by LEICA standards.

    Makes night time photography with a micro 4/3rds camera practical

    Other reviewers have given a very good account of the optics of this lens and I agree with what they say. It has it's limitations but in general it's a good lens. What I think the other reviews don't touch on however is how a 17.5mm 0.95 lens makes the 4/3rds system into an excellent low light system, comparable with the best of what full frame cameras such as the Nikon D600 have to offer. And it does so with a much smaller, lighter, and travel friendly footprint. Since the 4/3rds system is generally considered a slow sensor camera and a poor low light performer I think it's notable how this lens turns that notion on it's head.On a full frame camera a 0.95 lens like this one has a very narrow depth of field, bordering on the unusable. At 3' the depth of field is 1.5" which is barely enough to have the nose and face in focus at the same time and it's tricky to make work in low light. But the same is not true on the 4/3rds system where a 0.95 lens will have a more... 5/5 S. Reed Koch (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews, September 29, 2012

    WOW !!!

    I write to emphasize one point: that the .095 aperture is not merely an incremental improvement, it's fundamental change. I defer to others on most technical issues, and claim no special expertise in still photography or video. I have shot still photographs intermittently since the 1970's on a variety of cameras from Leica CL's to Canon DSLR's. More recently I have been interested in video, which is why I sold an older Canon DSLR to switch to the GH3.Your photographic background may be more informed than my own, but my first experience of looking through the viewfinder at .095 in a nearly dark room was simply mind blowing. The experience is much more than merely letting in a little more light; it's as though you are turning a powerful beam on the subject. When you take the camera away from your eye to reexamine the subject, you realize that you can't even see vaguely what the camera at .095 illuminates clearly.Nothing can prepare you for this result, and no... 5/5 William V.
