This time for real: the Voigtlander NOKTON 35mm f/1.2 lens for Fuji X-mount officially announced


The previously rumored Voigtlander NOKTON 35mm f/1.2 mirrorless lens for Fujifilm X-mount is now officially announced (press release) Here are the translated details from Cosina (sample photos can be found here):

Update: the lens is now available for pre-order at B&H Photo.

The NOKTON 35mm F1.2 X mount is a large aperture standard lens designed exclusively for the Fujifilm X mount. The lens configuration uses a traditional double-Gauss type. A large aperture of F1.2 is realized in the style of “8-element” in which all lenses arranged almost symmetrically around the aperture position are composed of spherical surfaces. Despite its compact size, it has stable descriptive power even when the aperture is wide open, allowing you to enjoy smooth and large bokeh.

Features:
■ Fujifilm X mount specially designed
Fujifilm X system Equipped with an optical system optimized for the image sensor of the camera. High resolution is maintained up to the periphery of the image without depending on the optical correction function of the camera, and phenomena such as color cast are suppressed.

■ Information communication with the body by
electronic contact Equipped with electronic contact, realizes highly reliable telecommunications between the lens and body. By combining a body that supports telecommunications and the latest firmware (* 1), in addition to Exif information, focus check, and shooting distance interlocking display, certain models also support in-body image stabilization and parallax correction.

■ Manual focus that enables reliable focusing
By adopting an all-metal helicoid unit that has been processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces appropriate torque, focusing with a smooth operation feeling is realized. Allows for delicate focus adjustment.

■ Beautiful bokeh with 12 diaphragm blades A 12-
blade diaphragm is used to make the holes formed by the diaphragm blades closer to a circle. The out-of-focus part is a natural depiction, and the point light source etc. is not a polygon but a round and soft bokeh.

■ Aperture ring for direct mechanical operation
As with the Voigtlander VM mount and mirrorless mount lenses, the aperture ring uses a mechanism in which the aperture ring is directly connected to the opening and closing of the aperture blades. With a 1/3 step click, you can enjoy the feeling of operating the mechanism directly.

■ Minimum shooting distance 0.3m The shortest shooting distance by the
lens all-group extension method is 0.3m. The close-up shooting effect provides a larger amount of bokeh than when shooting a distant view, expanding the possibilities of shooting that makes the most of the bokeh at full aperture.
