Voigtlander 50mm f1.2 Nokton Aspherical VM Lens

Back in March, Cosina Voigtlander announced three new lenses - this is one of them. The 50mm f1.2 VM Nokton Aspherical.

You may ask why this lens has been announced - when Voigtlander already have a 50mm f1.1. The 50mm f1.2 is a brand new lens design, with a similar specification to the exceedingly popular 40mm f1.2 VM lens - released at the beginning of the year.

This lens features two aspherical elements & a 12 aperture blade diaphragm - allowing exceptional performance from F22 all the way to wide open.

The 50mm f1.2 is designed for use with both digital and film photography and is equipped with a rangefinder coupling cam. The minimum close focus distance of this lens is 70cm, but with the VM-E Close Focus Adaptor mounted on an E-mount digital camera with live view function, it is possible to photograph as close as 41.7cm.

Both the LH-8 and LH-10 lens hoods can be used with this lens. The LH-10 is a brand new lens hood designed for this lens, though you can also use the more compact LH-8.

Main Features:

  • Enhanced high performance aspherical lens surfaces
  • Extremely solid and durable all-metal barrel
  • Manual focus
  • 12 aperture blades
  • VM Bayonet Mount
  • Focus coupling system
  • Minimum focus distance: 70cm
