Not only is this $10,000 gem the priciest lens we've ever tested, it's the fastest one made-and the first manualfocus we've had on our bench in years. A full-framer, it scales up to 67mm on the Leica M8 and M8.2.

The effect this lens produces will make this lens one that some people absolutely love, and others will find they just can't get along with. The haziness at maximum aperture generally looks quite pleasant, as does the vintage lens effect due to low contrast.

  • +

    Fast f/0.95 maximum aperture, Decent sharpness in the centre when stopped down, Delivers quite a unique look, Metal build

  • -

    Loose aperture ring with no damping, Out of focus backgrounds can look quite busy due to aperture shape, No hood included

The Noctilux no doubt is an impressive lens, not just because of its size and weight. Center resolution is very good to excellent throughout the tested aperture range. In contrast, though, the image borders and corners are very soft at large apertures, but improve considerably by stopping down.

Wonderful lens through and through. Using it on a Sony A7RII. I just got done with a major milestone project and used this lens for it. Granted, not wide open but rather stopped down to f/16 in complete darkness with nothing but a 200 lumen flashlight and the results were outstanding.

I shoot with this lens for 4 months straight now. I would say that the performance is very very well worth the money. when I set the aperture at 1.4, the bokeh is better than any 50mm 1.4 lens I have ever used. Now let's face it, we all looking at this lens because of it's speed shooting wide open.

I knew this lens would be soft, I read all the reviews. But it is just WAY too soft wide open (where you want to use it)

This lens makes you get creative with its insane f/0.95 and its low light capabilities. In addition, the fact that it is a totally manual lens, makes you enjoy photography and film making especially with Sony alpha series.The built quality is good and feels solid.

Normal, predicible people tend to be boring. It that wild, quirkly crazy, astonishing kinda' person who is most fun to be with. No to anthropomorphize the chunk of glass, but this lens is FUN! Who are always amazed at what it produces for you. This lens is art in your hands and mind.

First of all, wide open, you literally can't shoot people well enough but for still objects its pretty good. at 1.4 is where this lens shines, especially for people shots. But at the end of the day it still my favorite lens in the world and for that it get 5 stars.
