Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH. Lens Officially Announced

Leica has just announced the Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH. lens. This is the new low-light monster and according to Leica, it boasts ‘impeccable speed’ and ‘exceptional imaging performance’ as well as “hair-thin depth of focus [that] isolates subjects with extreme precision.”

The Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is the ideal optic in portrait and close-up photography, including a shallower depth of focus than that of the Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. and a close focusing distance of 0.85m, making for a reproduction ratio of 1:8.8 for even more precise isolation of subjects. Additionally, the eleven blades of its iris ensure a soft and harmonious bokeh in out-of-focus areas.

The Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH will be available at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers at the beginning of 2018. According to Leica, the lens will retail for $12,795. … Continue reading
