Noktor F0.95 Hyperprime 50mm lens

Philip Bloom writes a short review of the Noktor F0.95 Hyperprime 50mm lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras and likes it a lot. It's not perfect, but at $750 it offers a good combination of features.
It has a minimal focus distance of 0.6m, a filter size of 62mm and 8 aperture blades. I noticed that when stopped down a little the “Circle of confusion” was hexagonal in shape but wide open was circular. Apart from from the edges which where more half moon. I actually was actually quite partial to this look…
He hopes they'll make a version for Canon (though would a Micro Four Third lens actually have enough glass to cover an APS sensor, or would they have to redesign the whole thing?)
