      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 74x91mm 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.

      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.
       

      4). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
       
      The price of the new lens is $12800 (unfortunately YES) and it is to appear on sale at the beginning of 2018.

      Despite the fact that the latest Leika CL had its premiere more than a week ago, it’s definitely worth mentioning. This camera proves that the German producer of photographic equipment is still treating the sector of APS-C cameras very seriously.

      Leica CL is, above all, very ergonomic, which makes the camera very convenient. The camera is equipped with the 24-Mp CMOS sensor, supported by the latest image processor Maestro II, which should enable us to take photographs within the ISO range of 100 – 50000, with the speed up to 10 f/s.

      Apart from that, the camera is equipped with a shutter, which should enable work with the speed of up to 1/8000 s or 1/25000 s in the electronic mode, and the 49-point phase-detection autofocus.
       

      1). Leica CL
       
      We also have a built-in electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 2.36Mp, and two control knobs on the upper panel, which will enable us to quickly control the parameters of the aperture, shutter time, ISO sensitivity and control exposure compensation. The knobs are the pressing ones, enabling us to control two parameters at the same time. A very convenient function is a miniature supporting LCD screen, on which we can quickly see currently used settings.
       

      2). Leica CL
       
      The battery will enable us to take 220 photographs on a single charge, which is not the best result. The whole body is made of aluminum and magnesium alloys.

      The lenses from the TL system as well as the lenses from the M and R systems (through a dedicated adapter) can be connected to the camera.
       

      3). Leica CL
       
      As could be expected, the camera is not going to be cheap. It’s going to cost $4000. Leica CL is to appear on the market this month.

      What we can expect:
      This is a low light version of the GH5. It probably has a new low resolution sensor. This will be a more advanced version of the GH5 with improved video quality, stunning low light performance Higher price tag than the GH5. Same GH5 body December 15 (+ or – 1 day) via 43rumors.com
