Meyer-Optik-Görlitz Unveils Nocturnus III 50 f0.95 Lens

Meyer-Optik-Görlitz launches new Nocturnus III 50 f0.95 with mounts for Sony-E, Fuji-X and Leica M cameras.

The new Nocturnus has a minimum focus distance of 50 cm and weighs 790 grams. The new mechanical design of the Nocturnus III makes this lens also an interesting option for videography: Manual focus control and the step less aperture ring operate almost silently.

Like its predecessor, the new Nocturnus comes with a focal length of 50 mm and an aperture range from f0.95 to f11. Thus, the lens features a lot of versatility both when shooting in available light conditions and in terms of depth-of-field. Its 15 aperture blades with anti-reflective coating, make the new Nocturnus III 50 f0.95 a unique tool to create a pleasant bokeh with circular highlights whilst creating great sharpness in the focused areas. 

The super-fast manual-focus lens is optimized for use with full-frame sensors, but also works with APS-C cameras. The third edition comes in a new design and now features mounts for Sony-E, Fuji-X and Leica M. Within the next 14 days, the lens is offered in a pre-order sale, where it is available for less than 60% of its future MSRP.
