Leica Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 sample images

The following images were taken with a Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 H-NS043E mounted on an Olympus OMD EM1. This page represents the first part of my tests with the lens and I'll follow it up with more samples and comparisons using a variety of Micro Four Thirds bodies soon.

The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.

All of the images below are available to download in their original formats for analysis; click the photo to access the files at flickr. These files are for personal evaluation only and cannot be used in another publication or website without permission.
