Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Voigtlander 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical is a compact 35mm-equivalent lens for X-Mount. With its bright f/1.2 maximum aperture that suits working in a wide range of lighting conditions, this all-metal, manual focus lens delivers outstanding optical performance and precise focusing action while keeping size and weight to a minimum. To achieve this, Voigtlander make use of two low-dispersion glass elements and one aspherical element, as well as a metal helicoid unit that has undergone specific quality control processes.

Despite its mechanical design the lens fully supports communication with digital camera bodies and will be compatible with a number of features that rely on this interface. A rounded 12-blade diaphragm ensures the bokeh remains pleasingly circular at all apertures and is controlled by a built-in aperture ring.

  • Information communication with the body through electronic contacts
  • Precision and durable all-metal lens barrel
  • Manual focus for reliable, precise focus operation
  • Focus Check with enabled camera bodies
  • Aperture ring for direct mechanical aperture operation in 1/3-stop increments
  • Beautiful enhanced bokeh with 12 aperture blades

Is this a 23mm or a 35mm? The listing shows both.
Asked by: Ross
The focal length of the Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Lens for Nikon Z is 23mm. The Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Lens for Nikon Z is designed for use on Nikon Z-mount cameras that use the smaller 1.5x APS-C sensor. As the Nikon APS-C sensor has a 1.5x crop factor, the Voigtlander Nokton 23mm f/1.2 Aspherical Lens for Nikon Z would be the equivalent of a 34.5mm lens on a full-frame sensor as 23mm x 1.5 = 34.5mm (which would round up to the equivalent of a 35mm lens).
