The optical design of the Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. features nine elements in six groups. Two aspherical elements are included in the design to ensure optimum imaging performance across the entire image frame. Thanks to a floating element, this is also maintained from the closest focusing distance of 0.85 m to infinity.
This exceptionally short focusing distance for a fast lens, and a reproduction ratio of 1:8.8, underline the particular suitability of the lens for portraits and highly detailed reproductions.
The harmonious bokeh of the lens is the result of the round aperture created by the eleven blades of its iris. An integrated, lockable lens hood protects the lens against dirt and stray light. Thanks to its enormous resolving power, the Leica 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is ideally equipped for the future and delivers exceptional quality when cropping images captured by sensors with smaller pixels.
Only glass types with high anomalous partial dispersion and low chromatic dispersion were considered for use in the design and construction of the new Noctilux-M. This made it possible to increase the imaging performance of the Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. significantly, even compared to that of the Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH.
A particular emphasis has been placed on the use of a floating element within the complex focusing mechanism, guaranteeing a constantly high level of performance throughout the entire focusing range. Click here to read what Peter Karbe, Head of Lens Development at Leica, has to say about the new Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH.
The excellence of the 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is by no means limited to its technical performance. The visible and tactile quality and craftsmanship, and a focus on essential features so typical of Leica products also makes it particularly impressive.
Planes of focus that can be set with millimetre-precision, outstanding image performance at maximum aperture and unmistakeable bokeh: The name Noctilux has stood for excellent optical design for more than half a century.
The first lens of this series, the Leica Noctilux 50 mm f/1.2, was revealed to the world of photography at photokina in 1966. It astounded visitors and the industry press with its revolutionary optical properties. Even today, the Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. released in 2008 is still the world’s fastest aspherical lens. Just like the new Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH., it fascinates photographers with unmistakeable bokeh and visual qualities reminiscent of impressionist paintings.
