Product description


Return of a landmark lens

The lens comes in packaging inspired by the original box, and is complemented by the same lens container that was provided with the original Noctilux 50 f/1.2 for safe keeping. The silver chrome variant, which is released in parallel, will be limited to a production run of 100 units. The special-edition model features a brass lens barrel, a front-ring engraving that reads LEITZ WETZLAR (instead of LEICA), and comes in packaging that bears an even closer resemblance to that of the original..

Carefully adapted in line with modern lens design, the Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH. marks the return of one of the most famous lenses made for the Leica M-System. The reasons for the enduring appeal of this iconic lens have been its speed (which is impressive even today), elaborately constructed aspherical lens elements, and high rendition quality with a unique aesthetic at open aperture. The original Noctilux 50 f/1.2 was produced from 1966 to 1975 at a volume of 1757 units.

A street light in the dark, the rear lights of a car, a child’s face in candlelight, a performer in the spotlight – depicted with an authentic and natural clarity: images captured with a Noctilux are characterised by an unmistakable bokeh, and an almost impressionist aesthetic. Photographers the world over use this exceptional tool to master visual and creative challenges, and tell fascinating stories of darkness and light.
