The Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.4 M-Mount Lens is a high speed aspherical, single-coated lens for VM lens mount rangefinder cameras. It is single-coated, which produces lower contrast photos in black and white, and color. This lens is fast--great for shooting in low light situations-- with excellent focusing results.
A standard Leica M-mount is used for this lens, making it compatible with the Voigtlander Bessa R-2/3/4 & T cameras, Konica Hexar RF, as well as the popular series of Leica M cameras.
The Nokton lens is unusual in the rangefinder field because of the use of modern aspherical lens element fabrication technology on the rear element. The lens is constructed with two aspherical surfaces and one SD (super-low dispersion) glass element. This maintains the high level of image quality that rangefinder customers have become used to while keeping a highly competitive price point.
