Voigtlander 50mm f1.0 Nokton Aspherical Lens for Nikon Z Mount Cameras
Ultra-fast f1.0 aperture promises exceptional optical performance due to the newly designed GA (Ground Aspherical) lens element.
The Voigtlander NOKTON 50mm F1 Aspherical is an ultra-fast standard lens for full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras with the Nikon Z mount. It is Voigtländer’s brightest F1 interchangeable lens for full-frame cameras. Its image circle covers a full-frame chip and its optical design is optimized for the image sensor of the Nikon Z system cameras.
The lens is equipped with electronic contacts which communicate data with the body. In addition to Exif information and in-body image stabilization (3 axes), by combining with camera body features and the latest firmware, the lens has three types of focusing support functions:
(1) focusing by color changing of the focus point frame
(2) peaking function focusing
(3) focusing with the enlargement button
The NOKTON 50mm F1 Aspherical uses a GA (ground aspherical) lens element, manufactured in-house, for the front surface of the lens. This difficult manufacturing process achieves sufficient rendering and superior performance at even the widest aperture. The in-house designed and manufactured GA lens made it possible to use a high melting point and high refraction glass material, which cannot be used with molded lens manufacturing methods.
By manufacturing an aspherical lens from a high refractive index glass material, it became possible to simplify the lens configuration while ensuring high performance. Through this painstaking work, a lens with sharp styling, superior performance, and a short length was born!
In addition, by adopting a floating lens mechanism, stable image quality can be obtained from the shortest shooting distance to the most distant. Constant sharpness at all subject distances is now achievable. The standard 50mm F1 lens is like a dream for photography enthusiasts. With F1 you can enjoy extremely large and smooth bokeh compared to lenses with slower low F-stop. The minimum focusing distance of this lens is very close at 0.45m.
The high-precision metal helicoid with special lubricants produces very accurate focusing when the aperture is wide open and its silky focus feeling is another luxurious feature of the lens. Due to the 50mm F1’s total of 12 aperture blades, the out-of-focus part of point light sources are depicted in a desirable rendition and shape. It also comes with a metal lens hood that may be mounted in reverse making it both portable and versatile.
