The upgraded features of the Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. open up entirely new opportunities in portrait and close-up photography, including a shallower depth of focus than that of the Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 APSH. and a close focusing distance of 0.85m, making for a reproduction ratio of 1:8.8 for even more precise isolation of subjects. Additionally, the eleven blades of its iris ensure a soft and harmonious bokeh in out-of-focus areas.
Depth of field redefined
For more than 50 years, the name Noctilux has been synonymous with exceptional optical design, pushing the limits of what is technically possible, and founded on the outstanding quality delivered by German engineering.
The new Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is set to become a legend in its own right with its incredibly shallow depth of field, in combination with exceptional imaging performance, and a uniquely soft bokeh.
Its optical design allows precise, exceptionally detailed isolation of subjects from their background to create images of unique character. With a focal length of 75 mm, it is perfectly suited for the creation of portraits with a natural look. An ideal lens for M and SL photographers who are seeking something truly special and know how to make best use of creativity in their imagery.
The optical design of the Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. features nine elements in six groups. Two aspherical elements are included in the design to ensure optimum imaging performance across the entire frame. Thanks to a floating element, accurate and sharp focusing is maintained from the minimum focusing distance of 0.85m all the way to infinity.
Exceptional design in every respect
The excellence of the Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is by no means limited to its technical imaging performance. The visible and tactile quality and craftsmanship, and a focus on essential features so typical of Leica products, also makes it particularly impressive to behold.
Focusing that can be set with precision down to the millimeter, outstanding image performance at maximum aperture and unmistakeable bokeh: The name Noctilux has stood for excellent optical design for more than half a century.
