The presented Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is the second in this century, and the fourth in general, construction which has appeared in the Noctilux series.
A fixed lens, about which many portrait photographers have dreamed, is a fully manual lens, which is supposed to fully extend the new possibilities in this type of photography.
1). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
The lens is supposed to ensure a significantly more shallow depth of field than Noktilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, which is a remarkable achievement. Apart from that, we will get a minimum focus distance of 85cm.
The lens is equipped with a 11-blade aperture, with the maximum nominal slot of f/1.25, which is going to provide a higher-than-average bokeh effect.
2). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
The lens has the dimensions of 74×91mm and it weights 1055g so it’s not a compact one. Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is going to be compatible with the M system, but thanks to a special adapter we will also be able to mount it to the Leica SL lens.
3). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
The optical system consists of 9 elements placed in 6 groups, and the whole construction is to be characterized by high resolution and proper correction of all optical defects, which is definitely going to be useful during the work with the lens and new future high-resolution cameras.
