The Nokton 23 mm F1.2 X was developed exclusively for the Fujifilm APS-C sensor and optimally matched to it. The focal length corresponds to around 35 mm on Fujifilm APS-C cameras and thus offers the popular and universal reportage focal length. A high lens speed of F1.2 guarantees an enormous potential for cropping with the possibility of particularly vivid detail reproduction, and the new Nokton also impresses with its fine image quality across all aperture settings.

Nokton Classic 35 mm / 1:1.4

As you would expect from Voigtländer, the Nokton 23 mm F1.2 X is made exclusively from glass and metal and guarantees a full, yet sensitive handling. Focusing is purely manual, the aperture can be precisely adjusted in 1/3 increments and the electrical contacts enable communication with the camera (please note the information at the end!).

Compact dimensions and a weight of only 214 grams make our Nokton a pleasant daily companion! A lens hood is included in the scope of delivery.
