Just found out today that Noktor, the company that started out with a bang over a year ago has decided to close its doors for good. When they started they took the photo community by storm with the announcement of the 50mm f/0.95 lens for micro 4/3 mount. This was a rebranded CCTV lens that Noktor added their name to along with a green neon ring to brand it.
I was the very first person to review the lens and after spending time with it and even shooting it at a wedding, I did not care for the lens. It was way too soft, had no contrast, colors were murky and the bokeh was way too busy. Noktor charged $700-$800 for this lens and shortly after its announcement they stopped taking orders and just today announced the end of the company.
They had the marketing down, but that was about it. The lens was over priced for what it was. My question is, did they ever ship even one lens? R.I.P Noktor!
