New details have come out about the new Voigtlander NOKTON 35mm f/0.9 including its launch in August. You can read the translated details below:

The NOKTON 35mm F0.9 Aspherical X mount is a super large aperture standard lens that achieves the brightest F0.9 among Voigtlander X mount interchangeable lenses. It features a condensed styling with a total length of 64.9mm (from the tip to the mount surface), which takes into consideration the ease of handling, while providing a crisp and sharp in-focus image even at maximum aperture. In order to satisfy the design goals of both lens performance and handling during shooting, the first surface of the lens uses an in-house produced GA (ground aspherical) lens.

Main features

Exclusively designed for Fujifilm X mount
Equipped with an optical system optimized for the image sensor of the Fujifilm X system camera. High resolution is maintained to the image periphery without relying on the camera’s optical correction function, and phenomena such as color cast are also suppressed.

Information communication with the body by electronic contact
Equipped with electronic contacts for highly reliable electrical communication between the lens and body. In addition to Exif information, focus check, and shooting distance linked display, certain models also support in-body image stabilization and parallax correction through the combination of a body that supports telecommunications and the latest firmware (*1).

Manual focus for reliable focus operation
The use of an all-metal helicoid unit that has been processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces just the right amount of torque enables focusing with a smooth operating feel. It enables fine focus adjustment.

Beautiful bokeh with 12 aperture blades
A 12-blade diaphragm is used to make the hole formed by the diaphragm blades closer to a circle. Out-of-focus areas are rendered naturally, and point light sources are not polygonal but round and soft.

Aperture ring for direct mechanical operation
The aperture mechanism uses a mechanism in which the aperture ring is directly connected to the opening and closing of the aperture blades, similar to Voigtlander’s VM mount and mirrorless mount lenses. With a 1/3 step click, you can enjoy the feeling of direct operation of the mechanism.

GA (ground aspheric) lens and mechanism
In-house manufactured GA (ground aspherical) lens is used for the first lens surface. With a high refractive index that cannot be obtained with a general molded aspherical lens, it achieves both high-level image quality and condensed styling despite its ultra-large aperture. Stable image quality can be obtained up to the motif of

*1 Precautions regarding electronic communication compatible bodies
