Out-performs the human eye

The extremely shallow depth of field at open aperture produces portraits and detailed studies of unequalled aesthetic effect. The result is outstanding image quality, comparable to the Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH., which is considered the best standard lens ever produced. Even the light from one candle can be sufficient for handheld photography.

Technical details

As the world's highest-speed aspherical lens, the Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH exceeds the perception of the human eye. State-of-the-art optics and mechanical technologies have created a noticeable increase in lens speed, and a floating element retains high image quality even in the close-up range. Vignetting and distortion are even better than former Noctilux generations.


Innovation born of tradition

Uniting decades of rangefinder technology experience with innovative digital technologies, the new Leica M features a freshly developed high-resolution full-format CMOS which delivers impeccable imaging results. Now featuring Live View, video and new focusing methods, the M merges craftsmanship and innovation.
