The new Leica lens has an effective focal length of 85mm on MFT cameras
Following the leaked Leica Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT lens image from a couple of days ago, Japanese website Digicameinfo has just received three more images of the same lens mounted on a Panasonic Lumix GX7 body.Carefully analyzing these new pictures, we can see that the Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT is a pretty big lens, but it seems that it fits well on the camera body while the first leaked image showed a somewhat unbalanced combination.
The Leica Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT lens was announced back in August this year and it's designed to work with any Panasonic and Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera system. On these cameras, the lens will have an effective focal length of 85mm, making it perfect for artistic portrait shots.
There is still no additional information about its exact ship date and price, but rumors claim that the new Leica lens will hit store shelves in early 2014.
