Details

Available at Schouten Select Cameras & Accessories: The limited edition Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH in Black brand new in box. The Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH is made in silver and in black. Both are made in limited quantities. The black one is limited to 1800 pieces and the silver one is even more rare and limited to 100 pieces worldwide.

The original Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux was produced from 1966 until 1975 and was the first lens with aspherical lens elements. In fact that lens had 2 aspherical lens elements and these were hand polished. You can imagine how difficult it was to produce that lens. That lens has unique characteristics especially with the aperture wide open. The lens is famous and everybody likes the unique bokeh of that lens.

Leica tried to retain the original characteristics in the new Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH lens. The calculation and construction of the new lens is so closely to the original lens that the result are almost the same.

Very interesting about this lens is that Leica made about 5 or 6 prototype Noctilux lenses in the 60's and these were also silver. The production model was only available in black.

Keeping in mind that the red edition Leica 50mm f2 APO-Summicron lens went up in price by about 500% this Noctilux lens for sure will be a very sought after lens in the near future as well. Don't miss this one. It maybe an once in a lifetime opportunity.

The lens of course is brand new and comes with full packaging, all boxes, all accessories and all papers. Box has been opened to take pictures.
