Not leaving the Nocticron 42.5mm

I am sure that the Sigma is very good.  But I would never give up my Nocticron.

The Nocticron whispers  “I am M4/3 at its best” every time I use it. Maybe it is because I use it on Panasonic bodies.   Maybe because it makes such an impression when used with the GM5. Maybe it is because I can use the whole aperture range and don’t leave it wide open -it is light-versatile and quite strange to be a lens stabilsed f1.2.  Maybe it is because I scrapped the silly oem hood and bought a flat sided shorter screw-in hood and leave the hood permanently fixed with a new end cap to suit.  I have not used it just for portraiture.

I don’t seeany size issue with it and it is a perfect lens on the GM5, but quite happy on any camera body if I desire.

Whatever the reason the Nocticon walks my walk and talks my talk ... someone obviously got a good buy.

Your images are excellent.
