The Voigtlander NOKTON 50mm F1 Aspherical uses a GA (ground aspherical) lens element, manufactured in-house, for the front surface of the lens. This difficult manufacturing process achieves sufficient rendering and superior performance at even the widest aperture. The in-house designed and manufactured GA lens made it possible to use a high melting point and high refraction glass material, which cannot be used with molded lens manufacturing methods.

The built-in distance encoder also makes the lens compatible with camera models equipped with 5-axis in-body image stabilization. This uses distance information to the subject for shift stabilization calculations. It is also possible to magnify the image in the viewfinder by operating the focus ring for more accurate focus.

By manufacturing an aspherical lens from a high refractive index glass material, it became possible to simplify the lens configuration while ensuring high performance. Through this painstaking work, a lens with sharp styling, superior performance, and a short length was born!

In addition, by adopting a floating lens mechanism, stable image quality can be obtained from the shortest shooting distance to the most distant. Constant sharpness at all subject distances is now achievable. The standard 50mm F1 lens is like a dream for photography enthusiasts. With F1 you can enjoy extremely large and smooth bokeh compared to lenses with slower low F-stop. The minimum focusing distance of this lens is very close at 0.45m.

The high-precision metal helicoid with special lubricants produces very accurate focusing when the aperture is wide open and its silky focus feeling is another luxurious feature of the lens. Due to the 50mm F1’s total of 12 aperture blades, the out-of-focus part of point light sources are depicted in a desirable rendition and shape. It also comes with a metal lens hood that may be mounted in reverse making it both portable and versatile.

The aperture is controlled by a mechanical ring on the lens. The aperture ring has a click-switching mechanism that allows the aperture to be used without clicks when shooting video. The aperture has 12 diaphragm blades, which allow the photographer to capture smooth out-of-focus areas and point light sources as well in a well-defined form.
