NOKTON Vintage Line 28mm F1.5 Aspherical
A combination of classic style exterior reminiscenting historical masterpiece lens, and a high performance for modern photographic equipment. This high-grade lens combines three features: a large aperture, compact and tight dimensions, and outstanding optical performance.
The lens has a classical design reminiscent of the famous lenses of the 1970s (early 1960s for type II). With all parts made from metal for excellent feel and operability, the lens delivers joy of ownership.
Four design variations
Type I, with its aluminum exterior for light weight and mobility, is available in matte black paint and silver, while Type II, with its massive brass construction, is available in black paint and silver finish.
Focusing tab for ease of operability
The focusing tab is shaped to fit your finger to ensure fast and precise focusing.
Removable focusing knob (Type II)
The Type II includes a focusing knob. It can be exchanged by unscrewing the screw in the finger recess of the focusing lever. By the angle of the knob, zone focus can be intuitively grasped.
Modern lens design
In consideration for use on digital cameras, the lens utilizes an optical design with 10 elements in 8 groups that suppresses color shifts around the image periphery. Great image quality is achieved with both film and digital.
Minimum focus distance of 0.5 meters
The lens focuses beyond the minimum rangefinder-coupled focus distance of 0.7m all the way down to 0.5m. This feature is especially useful when using the lens on a camera with a live view function.
Bayonet type hood (sold separately)
The optional LH-6 hood is manufactured from aluminum and utilizes a bayonet type mount for fast attachment/removal.
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.
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.
