Leica NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/1.2 ASPH. silver

Limited edition Leica Noctilux-M 50mm F/1.2 ASPH. Silver Chrome. 

With this Noctilux, Leica is re-issuing a lens that occupies a very special place in the company’s history. Produced from 1966 to 1975, the Noctilux 50 f/1.2 was the world’s first lens to feature aspherical elements and, as such, represented something of a sensation. Its light sensitivity (which is enormous even by today’s standards) further contributed to the Noctilux’s legendary status – as did its unique aesthetic: images captured at open aperture are imbued with a soft, almost dreamlike quality – creating an unmistakable look with an exquisite bokeh. This silver chrome variant, which is released in parallel with the black one, will be limited to a production run of 100 units worldwide.

This 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.
