Smoother Bokeh: Voigtländer NOKTON 50mm f/1.2 Aspherical VM Lens

0Share

Voigtländer has introduced a fast fifty lens, designed to whet the chops of low-light shooters. The Voigtländer NOKTON 50mm f/1.2 Aspherical VM is a manual focus, M-mount lens that features 8 elements (including dual aspheric-surfaced elements) in 6 groups, all-metal construction, a 52mm filter thread, and a 12-bladed diaphragm designed to render rounded, natural-looking specular highlights when shooting at maximum aperture.

The Voigtländer NOKTON 50mm f/1.2 Aspherical VM is rangefinder-coupled to focus down to 28" (0.7m), or as close as 18.4" when used with a Voigtländer VM-E Close-focus Adapter on a Sony E-mount camera. (Since the Voigtländer NOKTON 50mm f/1.2 is an M-mount lens, it can be easily adapted for use with other mirrorless camera systems.)

According to Voigtländer, the new NOKTON 50mm /1.2 Aspheric VM displays minimal color fringing and chromatic aberrations, maintaining sharp detail, even when shooting at wide apertures.

Two optional lens hoods are available for new lens: the Voigtländer LH-8 Lens Hood and Voigtländer LH-10 Lens Hood, which unlike the LH-8—which fits several Voigtländer lenses—the LH-10 is designed specifically for the new NOKTON 50mm f/1.2.
