Overview

Overview

After more than 30 years, Leica breaks its own record and introduces the world's highest-speed aspherical lens: the Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. It is the successor to the famous Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/1 ASPH., which was added to the product range in 1975. Thanks to state-of-the-art optics and mechanical technologies, Leica has succeeded in achieving substantial improvements over the previous model. With nearly identical dimensions, a noticeable increase in lens speed has been achieved. The extremely shallow depth of field (DOF) at open aperture produces portraits and detailed studies of unequalled aesthetic effect. Even when just slightly stopped down, the result is outstanding image quality, comparable to the Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH, which is considered the best standard lens ever produced. When used in available light photography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. Even the light from one candle can be sufficient for handheld photography. A "floating element" retains high image quality even in the close-up range. Vignetting and distortion have also been visibly improved compared to the 50mm f/1.

Features

-The brightest lens available for any interchangeable lens camera system today

-Produces extremely diffuse, soft backgrounds

-11% Greater light-gathering capacity than its predecessor (Noctilux-M 50mm f/1)

-Improved peak resolution over that of the Noctilux-M 50mm f/1

-"Floating" 2-element rear lens group retains consistent performance at closer shooting distances

-Just ~1% of maximum distortion (barrel type); nearly undetectable

-Dedicated collapsing hood

-Accepts E60 filters

-Lens mount's rear has 6-bit code allowing digital M-series cameras to identify lens and its characteristics

-Depth-of-field scale at rear of lens barrel

Lens Magnification Factor:
This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.

Elements / Groups: 8/5
Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
