Voigtländer presents its new NOKTON 28mm F1.5 aspherical wide-angle lens for Leica M bayonet. This new development combines three outstanding elements: an impressively large aperture, compact dimensions and excellent optical performance.
The NOKTON 28mm F1.5 aspherical is available in two versions: Type I, made of aluminum, weighs 250 g and is available in matt black or silver. Type II, made of brass, has a special tactile quality due to its heavier weight of 330 g and is available in both black and silver lacquer.
Particularly noteworthy is the focusing rod supplied with the Type II lens, which offers a new manual focusing experience. The metal rod can be inserted into the finger recess by loosening the screw in the finger recess and screwing in the rod. This means that zone focusing can be adjusted even more intuitively using the angle of the rod. For example, the set distance is approximately 1 meter when it is turned to the 6 o’clock position.
- Double-sided aspherical lenses for outstanding optical performance
- Manual focus for precise focusing
- Intuitive focusing option for type II (focusing rod included)
- Built-in rangefinder locking system
- Compact and lightweight design in retro style
The classically designed lens barrel is equipped with an 8-group 10-element optical system with two aspherical lens elements on both sides. Even at an aperture of F1.5, this delivers outstanding optical performance with high sharpness right to the edges.
Focusing rod only for type II
The other technical details are also impressive: the 12 aperture blades ensure a smooth focus gradient and allow the photographer a high degree of creative freedom,
The close-up limit of 50 cm also offers the option of an interesting perspective design of the respective motif. In addition to classic landscape photography, a 28 mm focal length can be used for a variety of other purposes, whereby the lens with a length of 45.5 mm and a compact 43 mm filter diameter always remains extremely mobile and flexible.
With the NOKTON 28 mm F1.5 aspherical, Voigtländer once again sets new standards in terms of image quality and design to offer discerning photographers a unique tool. This wide-angle lens combines aesthetics, mobility and optical excellence at the highest level.
