More details on the SLR Magic | Noktor lenses

SLR Magic recently took over the Noktor brand and announced the future development of two new lenses for Sony NEX/E-mount: 28mm f/2.8 and Noktor 50mm f/0.95.

SLR Magic is currently working on supplying the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 lens to people who have been on the waiting list. The lens is expected to start shipping in July. In an email to, SLR Magic representative stated that the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 is not a rebranded CCTV lens as many people think. The original design is for a professional vision lens that is mainly used for medical and biological research where minimal light is available. A lot of work was done to make this lens work on digital cameras.

The new Noktor lens will have the same optics and it will be priced at $970. The lens mount will be black in order to minimize flare and the green ring in the front will be treated with a black platform to prevent green color cast when the lens is exposed under strong lighting situations. "NOKTOR 50mm | 0.95" is now engraved on the lens ring of the front element instead of the lens barrel for a more elegant and low profile look that is better suited for available light photographers. Those improvements lead to a higher contrast image rendition. Lens sharpness will be the same as before.

New Noktor lenses with different optical design are expected at the end of 2011.

  • would love to use it on my canon dslr

    second that! Please give us an EF mount.

  • Anton G

    And a F-mount version (should be fairly easy, considering you just have to change the flange distance and there is no need for any electronic stuff)

    • Sky

      lol…. you don’t have idea about optics, do you?

  • benjamin

    flange distance for m43 is 20mm.. EF is 44, F is 46.5 you ll have a nice bright, soft, smudgy macro lens.

    If I was Cosina/Voigtlander, I would prosecute for trademark infringement.
    ‘Noktor’ is too close to ‘Nokton’.

    • asdasd

      actually not, you are going to wait until product is released, famous, expensive to rename, then you sue.
