Strictly limited release
A new version of one of the most famous Leica M lenses returns. The Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. has been carefully adapted to the design of modern lenses and, despite modern technology, delivers the unique look that continues to impress creative photographers today. Once it has been stopped down to f/2.8, the Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. delivers sharp images that live up to any quality expectations of modern-day digital photography.
In 1966, the Noctilux 50 f/1.2 astounded expo visitors and the trade press with its positively revolutionary optical attributes. The lens offered a maximum aperture that was enormous by the standards of the time, in conjunction with exceptional optical performance. This was partly due to the fact that the Noctilux was the world’s first serially produced lens to feature two aspherical elements. Their purpose was to reduce spherical aberration at maximum aperture and improve rendition quality. To re-issue this iconic lens, the original calculation and construction were only minimally changed and carefully adapted to the glass types and production methods available today.
