The Quickest Aspherical Lens in the World
Featuring an extremely superficial depth of field (DOF) at wide open aperture setting which creates portrait photographs and meticulous studies of unequalled pleasing effects. Even when just stopped down a little, the result is superb image quality, very similar to the SUMMILUX-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH lens, which is thought of as the finest standard lens ever manufactured
The lens speed is noticeably faster which has been accomplish without any major lens size alterations. The characteristic depiction of the prior 50mm f/1, prized by many photographers as a way of creative imaging, has been preserve at full open aperture When it' is stopped down slightly, the lens performs similar to the SUMMILUX-M 50 mm f/1.4 lens. Containing a "floating element", the splendid performance is retained even at while at close range focus distances In addition, vignetting and distortion numbers have again been enhanced over the previous version Using a normal polarizing filter is possible because of a special lens filter adapter
It's been more than three decades, but Leica has broken its own speed record and has introduced the quickest aspherical lens in the world: It's is the
descendent of the world famous NOCTILUX-M 50 mm f/1 ASPH., that was announced in 1975. Because of state-of-the-art optic advances plus mechanical engineering, Leica has successfully achieved substantial improvements beyond the previous lens.
There's virtually identical dimensions, however a conspicuous boost in lens quickness has been accomplished.. When employed for available light photographs, the lens surpasses the human eye perception. Even a light from a single candle can be bright enough for handheld shots.
