The lens for a wonderful bokeh

40 mm/1:1,2 Nokton E

Aspheric, fast normal lens

Title: Bastian Kratzke with Voigtländer

The 40 mm/1:1.2 Nokton is a fast, manual lens. It is the world`s first full-frame 40 mm lens with an aperture of f/1.2, while retaining a compact size. The optical formula includes two aspherical lenses, and the photographer can rely on optical performance and enjoy a smooth bokeh at the maximum aperture.

If used on a camera with APS-C Sensor, the focal length corresponds to approximately 60 mm, and therefore the lens acts as normal lens on both full-frame and APS-C cameras.

The aperture ring has 1/3 stops. The lens has our Selective Aperture Control System, allowing for a stepless aperture change during video applications.
