Voigtlander 40mm f1.2 ASPHERICAL VM (Leica M Mount) New USA
Voigtlander 40mm f1.2 ASPHERICAL VM (Leica M Mount) New USA 
Announcing the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM (and
40mm Viewfinder M), a VM-mount interchangeable lens for
rangefinder cameras that realizes a compact size and large
F1.2 aperture.

We announce the release of the NOKTON 40mm F1.2
Aspherical, a large aperture full frame lens from the Voigtländer
brand. The NOKTON designation is only given to high-speed
lenses in the Voigtländer lineup with a maximum aperture of
F1.5 or faster. When the first NOKTON was released in the 1950s,
it was positioned as a lens that enabled images to be captured
even in low light. However, with constantly improving imaging
sensor sensitivity, the advantage of a high-speed lens nowadays
is the ability to use as a means of photographic expression the
out-of-focus bokeh created by opening the aperture.

The NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM features two elements each with two aspherical surfaces, so
you can enjoy reliable optical performance from maximum aperture and gentle very out-of-focus bokeh. This
lens shares the same optical configuration as the NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical E-mount lens, however the
NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM is optically adjusted with consideration for use on both film and digital
and features a focus-coupling cam that enables focusing with optical rangefinders. This lens is focus coupled
down to 70cm (varies lightly depending on the camera) and can focus down to a minimum distance of 50cm
on digital cameras with a live view function. Furthermore, even though the lens has a large F1.2 maximum
aperture, it realizes a very compact style with a weight of just 315 grams (lens on its own) for very light
handling. The 40mm Viewfinder M optical viewfinder with metal body is also available as an option for the
NOKTON 40mm F1.2 Aspherical VM for use on rangefinder cameras that do not have a built-in 40mm frame
line.
