Product Description

Details

Now available at Schouten Select Cameras & Accessories: The limited edition Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH in Silver brand new in box. The Leica 50mm f1.2 Noctilux-M ASPH is made in silver and in black. Both are made im 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 lens was sold via Leica stores only and already sold out. At this moment this is maybe the only available silver Noctilux lens on the market.

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 rsults 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. This current silver lens will be very interesting for both users and collectors. Not many will be available on the market and together with the original silver one a definite must have for real collectors.

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.

Please make a serious offer keeping the rarity of this lens in mind. Thanks!
