Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1  Nokton Leica M mount  

Check out the Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 Image Discussion HERE

 Tom Abrahamsson's take on the new 50/1.1!
- "The Nokton 50 1.1 is a better lens than the 50/1 Noctilux"

This is the first time a M mount lens faster than f/1.2 has EVER been produced by anyone except Leica! It's price is about 1/10 the price of a new Leica 50/.95 Noctilux! YAY Cosina Voigtlander! Cosina's CEO Mr. Kobayashi  unveiled his new 50mm f/1.1 Super Fast Knock Your Socks Off Nokton for the 10th Anniversary of his 1999 Voigtlander Bessa system as well as for the 50th Anniversary of Cosina!


Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 Nokton on Voigtlander R3M


Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 Nokton on Leica M8.2



  • Styling similar to the 35/1.2 Nokton

  •  f/1 to f/16 with half stop click stops

  • Black only

  • M mount only

  • 7 Elements in 6 Groups

  • 10 aperture blades

  • Close focus to 1 meter

  • Filter size 58mm -- mount filters between the lens and the lens hood -- not in the lens hood

  • Standard round screw on hood included with lens

  • Optional larger vented LH-7 lens hood $109

  • Size 57.2mm length x 69.6mm diameter

  • Weight 428 grams or 15.1 ounces

  • The 50mm f/1.1 is a good match for all Leica M mount cameras EXCEPT for cameras with a shorter rangefinder base such as the Leica / Minolta CL, Minolta CLE, and Voigtlander Bessa R4A / R4M -- unless you don't open the lens wider than f/2 shooting in the 3 to 8 foot range.  Short rangefinder baselength cameras can't  focus 50mm lenses accurately and consistently IF opened up wider than f/2.  However you will usually be happy with the focus wide open at 1.1 on the same camera if your subject is 20 feet or further away.

The LH-7 is best for Leica M bodies as it can block the RF patch on Voigtlander Bessa bodies. 

LH-7 Instructions:
To attach the LH-7, first remove the standard hood.  Then mount the screw on the LH-7 to the lens (or to a 58mm filter mounted on the lens).   Loosen the LH-7 locking screw and rotate the LH-7 hood for maximum visibility thru the viewfinder with that particular camera body.  Then tighten down the LH-7 set screw.  The LH-7 can be stored in reversed position on the 50mm f/1.1 by loosening the set screw and leaving the retaining ring on the lens. The clip on lens cap can be used with either lens hood attached, as well as with the LH-7 reversed.
