Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH Lens Features & Technical Specs

The LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH offers a unique range of features. A noticeably (11%) higher speed has been achievedin a body with almost the same diameter and only very slightly longer than its predecessor, the Noctilux-M 50mm f/1. At thesame time, its rendition quality significantly exceeds that of its predecessor, while retaining the typical, slightly soft reproductionof the previous lens. Even at full stop, the LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50mm ASPH f/0.95 demonstrates excellent reproduction quality,which only deteriorates slightly towards the edges - while the slightly smaller format of the Leica M8 models only capture less ofthese areas anyway. Stopping down brings a continuous significant improvement in performance, up to an exceptional level overthe entire image field at 5.6. Even in the close-up range, this performance is largely retained thanks to a "floating element".The strikingly low degree of vignetting for such a high speed lens is a maxim…
