NOKTON classic 40mm F1.4

Classic lens character

Features

Focusing on the genre expressed as “lens character”, this lens pursues beauty in the captured images. Aberrations are to a certain extent intentionally left under corrected to achieve softness at maximum aperture, and the lens is sharp when the aperture is stopped down. These lens characteristics can be utilized for imaging.

Main Features

Lens for enjoying its character

The Nokton Classic draws images in a classical way that sets it apart from modern lens that are sharp with high contrast regardless of aperture. It is especially soft at maximum aperture and sharp when the aperture is stopped down. Being able to control these two characteristics according to the photographer's intention make this lens very attractive.

Compact design with large maximum aperture

As a frequently used semi-wide/standard lens focal length, the 40mm angle of view is one that requires versatility. Despite the large F1.4 maximum aperture, the lens is just 29.7mm long and weights just 175 grams. It realizes a compact form so you will always have it with you.

Two types of lens coating to choose from

The multi coated (MC) version aims to reproduce colors that are as neutral as possible and the single coated version aims to reproduce classical color tones. This lineup offers a lens coating to match your taste.

Dedicated bayonet type lens hood

A durable and beautiful metal dedicated bayonet type lens hood that only slightly protrudes into the field of view when the lens is attached to a rangefinder camera is provided as an optional accessory.

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.

Focusing tab for ease of operability

The focusing tab is shaped to fit your finger to ensure fast and precise focusing.

Bayonet type VM mount

Uses the VM-mount lens mount compatible with Leica M-mount. Not only can this lens be used on rangefinder-coupled cameras, but design-wise it also balances very nicely when mounted on mirrorless digital cameras with a mount adapter.

Installed with a focus-coupling system

The high-precision rangefinder coupling mechanism enables precise focusing in focus critical situations such as when shooting at or close to maximum aperture.

Imaging circle that covers full frame format

The lens features a generous imaging circle that covers the 35 mm full frame format. Furthermore, its size is extremely compact compared to interchangeable lenses for single-lens reflex cameras.
