The Leica Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 is a high-quality short telephoto lens designed for Panasonic and Olympus mirrorless cameras. It's the brightest lens in the Micro Four Thirds catalogue to sport autofocus, and it also features optical stabilisation. The effective focal length of 85mm coupled with the fast focal ratio makes it perfect for portraits, and Leica has taken care to ensure the out-of-focus rendering is smooth with nine aperture blades. It's not a cheap lens, so the big question is whether it's worth spending the extra over models like the Olympus 45mm and 75mm f1.8. So I compared all three and have a detailed report on sharpness, bokeh, coma and more, along with over 30 sample images, mostly taken at f1.2, all in my Leica Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 review!
