Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.0 Aspherical GA Lens for Sony E Available for Preorder

Published: March 21, 2024


Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.0 Aspherical GA Lens for Sony E is available for preorder now for $1,899 with expected availability on April 2, 2024. Voigtlander manual focus lenses include electronic contacts that support EXIF data communications with the camera body.

Compatible with Sony E mount

Electronic contacts transmit EXIF information of the shooting data and built-in distance encoder supports 5-axis image stabilization. It is also possible to enlarge the viewfinder by operating the focus ring.

Optimized optical design

In addition to ensuring a full-size image circle, it uses an optical design optimized for Sony E-mount sensors. High resolution is maintained right up to the edges of the screen, and phenomena such as color cast are suppressed.

Adopts GA (ground aspherical) lens

The first lens surface uses a GA (ground aspherical) lens produced in-house. It is now possible to simplify the lens configuration while ensuring high performance, and despite the ultra-large aperture, it achieves both high-level image quality and a sleek style.

Equipped with floating mechanism

Floating mechanism moves the lens groups independently according to the shooting position so that stable image quality is ensured from the minimum focus distance (0.45m) to infinity.

Beautiful bokeh created by 12 aperture blades

In order to make the hole formed by the aperture blades more circular, a 12-element aperture is used. Out-of-focus areas are rendered naturally, and point light sources are not polygonal, but have round, soft bokeh.

Manual focus allows for reliable focusing

All-metal helicoid unit that has been machined and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces an appropriate amount of torque provides focusing with a smooth operating feel. This allows for delicate focus adjustments.

Aperture click switching mechanism

The aperture click switching mechanism allows the aperture ring to be opened and closed steplessly without producing any click noise. This eliminates the need to worry about picking up the operation sound of the aperture ring when recording videos, and also allows for severe depth control by finely adjusting the aperture ring.
