The Voigtländer 50 mm F1.0 Nokton aspherical Z-mount is a high-performance standard lens with manual focus, which has been optimized for the full-frame image sensors of Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras (Nikon FX format). The lens is based on the well-known 50mm F1.0 lens with VM mount, but has electronic contacts for communication with the camera body (*).

In addition to the very large aperture and outstanding imaging performance, one of the development goals was a compact design. This was achieved by using a specially ground front lens made of a glass material with a high refractive index (Grinding Aspherical Lens). This simplified the lens configuration without compromising on image quality and limited the length of the lens to 66.6 mm. In addition, floating elements are used, i.e. a specific group of lenses is brought into the optimum position depending on the shooting distance to ensure consistently clear and uncompromising image sharpness at all times.


This high technical effort is reflected in the top image quality and gives the user a wide range of image composition options. The sharpness performance is impressive right into the peripheral areas, the large bokeh at open aperture is impressive and the rich handling simply makes photographic work fun. A real tool for photography enthusiasts!

A lens hood is included in the scope of delivery, which can also be attached to the lens upside down when not in use.
