The fastes lens we have for our NEX systems are the just announced Zeiss 24mm (Click here to preorder) and the 50mm (Click here to preorder), both having f/1.8 aperture. But what to do if you need faster lenses? Steve Huff (Click here) tested two 50mm f/0.95 lenses on the new Sony NEX-5n.
1) The expensive Leica Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ([shoplink 8696 ebay]Click here to see that on eBay[/shoplink]).
2) The new Noktor 50mm f/0.95 with E-mount (!) which is now available on [shoplink 8695 ebay]eBay (Click here)[/shoplink].

Steve says: “For the last two shots I focused on different points so I did not put up a crop. The one thing we can say for certain is that the Leica is sharper not only on the focus point but at the edges as well. I guess we are paying for something huh? The Noktor is built VERY well, almost Leica like but it is a bit bigger. Then again, it is a f/0.95 lens. With the EVF and focus peaking, these lenses are a breeze and joy to manual focus.” Read the full test with image sampels at Steve Huff (Click here).
