Voigtlander 40 mm F1.2 Nokton
In the constellation of standard lenses, the Voigtlander 40 mm F1.2 Nokton stands out as a bright star, merging high-end optical design with practicality for the Leica M-Mount (VM) users. Its fast aperture combined with impeccable optical design offers photographers both versatility and outstanding performance.
The Aspherical Advantage
This lens is not just about its fast aperture. At its core, the lens houses two aspherical elements. These ensure sharpness throughout the frame, minimizing optical aberrations. Furthermore, at its maximum aperture, the lens produces a soft and creamy bokeh that's dreamy yet well-defined, making it perfect for portraits and low-light scenarios.
Focus with Precision
One of the hallmarks of the Voigtlander 40 mm F1.2 Nokton is its ability to reliably transmit to an optical viewfinder with distance adjustments. With a focusing coupling, users can comfortably focus up to a near-limit of about 70 cm, depending on the camera in use. Moreover, with cameras that feature a live view function, focusing can be done to as close as 50 cm.
Compactness Meets High Performance
Despite its high-speed aperture of F1.2, the lens boasts a surprisingly compact design. Weighing in at a mere 315 grams, it exemplifies convenience without compromising on performance. Whether you're on the streets or in a studio, this lens promises agility, making every photography session a breeze.
