Voigtländer announces the new 17.5mm f/0.95 lens

After the superb Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 Cosina just (officially!) announced the new Voigtländer Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95! The German press release is online at Photoscala (click here to read the horrible google translation). The main difference with the 25mm version is that the aperture ring can be switched from “Click stops” to “Clickless stops” using the ring in the front of the aperture ring. That’s perfect for video use! And the lens should have a superb bokeh too! That beauty is priced at 1299 Euro and will be ship in March. And here are the specs:
