@We announce the release of the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical, a large aperture full frame lens from the Voigtländer brand. The NOKTON designation is only given to high-speed lenses in the Voigtländer lineup with a maximum aperture of F1.5 or faster. When the first NOKTON was released in the 1950s, it was positioned as a lens that enabled images to be captured even in low light. However, with constantly improving imaging sensor sensitivity, the advantage of a high-speed lens nowadays is the ability to use as a means of photographic expression the out-of-focus bokeh created by opening the aperture.
@ The NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM features two elements each with two aspherical surfaces, so you can enjoy reliable optical performance from maximum aperture and gentle very out-of-focus bokeh. This lens shares the same optical configuration as the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical E-mount lens, however the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM is optically adjusted with consideration for use on both film and digital and features a focus-coupling cam that enables focusing with optical rangefinders. This lens is focus coupled down to 70cm (varies lightly depending on the camera) and can focus down to a minimum distance of 50cm on digital cameras with a live view function. Furthermore, even though the lens has a large F1.2 maximum aperture, it realizes a very compact style with a weight of just 315 grams (lens on its own) for very light handling. The 40mm Viewfinder M optical viewfinder with metal body is also available as an option for the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM for use on rangefinder cameras that do not have a built-in 40mm frame line.
