The technical data of the lens are the same as the production model of the 50mm Noctilux. Only the design is different: The engraving of the maximum aperture “0.95” is highlighted in white, while all other engravings are highlighted in dark grey, blending discreetly into the matt-black anodised finish. Unique design features include distinctive knurling and gloss-finished elements on the lens barrel and front lens cap. This is the first time a glossy anodised finish is used as a design element. Previously, this finish has only been used on the sliding surfaces inside a lens.
