Our new Nokton 50 mm F1.2 Aspherical VM is a very balanced lens with the universal and very popular focal length of 50 mm – for an extremely natural perspective. It has been designed for both digital and analogue photography and is functionally fully compatible for use with rangefinder cameras.
Two lens elements with aspherical surfaces and the 12-plate diaphragm construction provide outstanding optical performance even when the panel is open. Images with a very soft and pronounced bokeh can also be created. The close limit is 70 cm (may vary by camera type), when using the separately sold VM-E adapter (for Sony cameras) the minimum distance is reduced to 41.7 cm.
When developing the Nokton 50 mm F1.2 aspherical VM, we put a lot of emphasis on compactness, so the weight is only 344 grams, which makes it extremely user-friendly and easy to use. Thus, when using the optical viewfinder of the camera disturbing influences on the viewing angle are largely avoided by the short design.
The new Nokton 50 mm F1.2 aspherical VM is aimed at the photographers among you who appreciate an excellent standard lens with fine image quality in a classic look. And thanks to the high light intensity of F1.2, it is virtually predestined for available-light photography.
- • Fast f/1.2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also enables greater control over focus position for selective focus applications
- • Two aspherical elements are incorporated at the front and the rear of the eight elements, six groups construction, and helps to limit spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering
- • One partial dispersion element is featured in the optical design, and helps to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve higher clarity and color fidelity
- • Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 2.3', and a rangefinder cam enables coupled focusing with M-mount rangefinder cameras
- • A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
