Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux

Available Today

The Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M ASPH has extremely shallow depth of field (DOF) at open aperture which 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 50 mm f/1.4 Summilux-M 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/1.0.

Customers will require a certificate of insurance and / or deposit for rental of this item.

Joey’s Take

What’s to say about the lens that hasn’t already been said? If you need f/.95, this is it, and it’s worth the price of admission. And on the new Typ 240 and especially the Monochrom, no light is too low. Sure, the 50 Summilux is much more practical, not to mention better at 1.4, but this is the lens you dream about. Not something I’d buy, but definitely something I’d rent for a weekend.
