The Lens is Quite Soft and
Has Poor Bokeh at Larger Apertures
The Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 is a extremely fast aspherical lens created for rangefinder VM lens mount cameras. It is built with 7 elements within 6 groups, takes 58mm filters and features a minimum focus distance of around 3.28' (1m). A very quick and crisp lens that weighs in at under 16 ounces, with a lens barrel that is all-metal construction.
There's a 10 bladed diaphragm that captures soothing out-of-focus bokeh. Click stop aperture adjustments at half-stop distances allows subtle fine-tuning for depth-of-field or exposure effortless.
A unique lens in the rangefinder domain due to the use of up-to-date aspherical lens element creation technology on the back element.
It's built with a pair of aspherical surfaces plus a single SD element with super-low dispersion glass. This preserves the high image quality level that rangefinder photographers have become accustomed to while maintaining a highly competitive price.

The M Mount was also the mount used for Minolta's CLE rangefinder, on the Konica Hexar RF, on the later versions of the Voigtlander Bessa family
and Lenses, the mount for the Rollei 35RF, also quite recently on the newest Zeiss Ikon
Rangefinder and Lenses. M lenses can be adapted to Canon EOS, Nikon, Micro Four
