50mm Noctilux Reboot


(This page discusses the new ƒ0.95 ASPH lens. For the older 1970's ƒ1.0 lens, see this separate FAQ topic.)

Announced September 2008 and slated to be available in February 2009, the new Noctilux features: a complete optical redesign with two aspherical elements; less vignetting; less comma; less astigmatism; less swirling-muck; and all for a measly price of only € 8 000 Euro

Too early to say anything more than… ouch.
