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.

    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

This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 Manual Focus Lens for Micro 4/3 Mount (Camera) This lens shipped extremely fast! The fact that it said it would take about a month to ship from Japan made me lose hope in getting it sooner; but low and behold, it came in less than a week!(Pros)+excellent build quality+smooth focusing ring+came with hood and lens caps+very fast lens+creamy bokeh+can be used as a macro lens+came well packaged+solid build(Cons)-no storage or lens case/bag-purple fringing at lowest f-stop-vignetting at lower f-stops (common in all fast lens)(My own opinions)+-beautiful results+-too pricey for an only manual lens+-too heavy on my GH4+-did not come with warranty documents?+-great for photos and videosUPDATE: This lens is just awesome! I did some astrophotography and they turned out great!, April 13, 2016

    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.

    Great Lens and an Excellent Value for Your Money

    5/5 russbooker (New York, NY USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4 SL-II N Manual Focus Lens with Integrated CPU for Nikon AIS Lens (Camera) I purchased this lens from CameraQuest on Amazon based on rave reviews from "The Angry Photographer" on YouTube. The metal lens has exceptionally high build quality, with beautiful glass and a silky-smooth focus ring. Photos taken so far on my Nikon Df are razor sharp with superb color rendition and creamy bokeh blurring in the background. This is the first manual focus lens I've purchased and used since the 1980's and it has been very enjoyable (and personally rewarding) to return to the "art" of manual focus photography after so many years. Also noteworthy is the fact that at $489 this lens 58mm f1.4 Voightlander delivers an excellent value for the money when compared to comparable lenses from Nikon or Carl Zeiss. My only complaint is that the 58mm Voightlander lens cap that comes with the lens pops off too easily, and I have since replaced it with a standard Nikon LC-58 cap which securely stays on the lens.
