The X-mount Nokton 35mm F1.2 is a large maximum aperture standard lens designed especially for Fujifilm X-mount. The lens employs a traditional double Gauss optical configuration. It’s maximum aperture is F1.2, and its aperture mechanism is positioned in the center with its eight spherical elements arranged almost symmetrically around the aperture mechanism in “8-element” lens style. As well as providing reliable imaging quality from maximum aperture, the lens allows you to enjoy smooth very blurred bokeh.
Dedicated design for Fujifilm X-mount
The lens utilizes an optical formula optimized for the imaging sensors of Fujifilm X-mount system cameras. High resolution is maintained up to the image periphery without having to rely on the camera’s optical correction function, and color shifts are well controlled.
Information communication with the body via electronic contacts
The lens has electronic contacts to enable highly reliable electronic communication between the lens and body. Exif information, focus checking, and display according to shooting distance are supported on bodies with the latest firmware that support electronic communication (*1), and in-body image stabilization and parallax correction are also supported on certain models.
Manual focus for reliable focusing
Employs a very precisely machined and adjusted all metal helicoid unit lubricated with high quality grease to realize smooth focusing operation with just the right amount of torque. This enables very precise focusing.
12-blade aperture diaphragm for beautiful bokeh
The aperture diaphragm is configured with 12 blades to make the aperture opening as circular as possible. This means the out-of-focus areas of images are drawn naturally and point light sources etc. are drawn as soft round bokeh rather than as polygonal shapes.
Directly operated mechanical aperture ring
Like the VM mount and mirrorless mount Voigtländer lenses, the lens employs an aperture ring mechanism that directly opens and closes the aperture. The mechanism has 1/3 stop clicks so you can directly enjoy the feeling of operating it.
Minimum focus distance of 0.3 meters
The 0.3m minimum focus distance is achieved by extending the entire optical cell fully forward. A benefit of close-up shooting is that more bokeh can be obtained when capturing images at closer distances compared to further distances, thus expanding the possibilities of imaging that utilizes bokeh at maximum aperture.
- Note on Electronic communication Compatible Bodies. Although this product is equipped with electronic contacts, there are restrictions on the bodies that can be used for Electronic communications.
- It is recommended to change the aperture value display setting from TNo to FNo in the body settings.
- It is recommended that the depth-of-field display be changed to the film standard (the same value as the depth scale engraved on the product) in the body settings.
- Please use the latest firmware as it may not perform as well as the listed firmware or may have limitations in some of the functions. Please check the firmware of the camera body you are using and refer to the body manual to obtain the latest firmware.
- When using a camera that does not support Electronic communications, change the "Release without lens" setting to "Permitted" in the body settings.
