SUPER NOKTON 29mm F0.8 Aspherical

Large maximum aperture lens that transcends the Nokton

Features

The Super Nokton 29mm F0.8 is a standard lens designed especially for the Micro Four Thirds format. At F0.8*, this lens has the largest maximum aperture of any interchangeable lens currently available. The angle of view of this lens is 42.75° (equivalent to a 58mm lens in 35mm full frame format), which is the same angle of view as the large aperture standard lenses of yesteryear, and you can enjoy capturing images with very blurred bokeh utilizing its ultra-large F0.8 maximum aperture.

*According to our research as of November 2020

Main Features

Amazingly large maximum aperture

The large F0.8 maximum aperture enables images to be captured using just the available light even in low light situations. The lens is also ideal for imaging at maximum aperture to utilize its shallow focus and beautiful bokeh.

Ultimate lens design

An extremely flexible design utilizing high‐melting point glass not usable for molded aspherical elements was made possible by employing a ground aspherical (GA) surface developed in-house in the optical formula. The lens achieves excellent image quality from maximum aperture even with its ultra-large F0.8 maximum aperture, and it has a compact size and reasonable weight for ease of handling.

Diverse expressive power

At maximum aperture, the gentle and smooth bokeh makes the in-focus subject stand out and gives images a sense of three-dimensionality. And when the aperture is stopped down, images are extremely sharp, making diverse photographic expressions possible with this one lens. Its 12 aperture blades ensure that point light sources in the out-of-focus areas of images are drawn neatly.

Aperture click-stop switching mechanism

The aperture click-stop switching mechanism enables the aperture mechanism to be steplessly stopped down/opened up with no click-stop sound. This ensures that the sound of the aperture ring being operated is not recorded while capturing video and also enables a high level of depth of focus control by fine-tuning the aperture ring.

Dedicated lens hood included

A metal lens hood very effective at shielding the lens from stray light is included as standard.

Dedicated Micro Four Thirds mount

Optics and mechanism designed especially to conform to the Micro Four Thirds standard. As it fully covers the size of the imaging sensor and is optimized for Micro Four Third sensors, this lens achieves excellent image quality.

Manual focus for reliable focusing

Employs a very precisely machined and adjusted all metal helicoid unit lubricated with high quality grease to realize smooth focusing operation with just the right amount of torque. This enables very precise focusing.
