Noktor HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95 lens with Leica M mount currently in testing

Noktor created some online buzz last week when they announced on Twitter that they are testing a new full frame HyperPrime lens. The initial expectations were that this lens will come with Nikon/Canon mount but yesterday SLRMagic (the company that currently owns the Noktor brand) confirmed in an email that the new Noktor HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95 lens will be with a Leica M mount. Here is a picture of the actual prototype lens on a M9 body:

Some more details:

  • obviously the lens can be used on mFT and NEX cameras with an adapter
  • it will have round aperture opening instead of hexagon shape
  • slide out hood
  • metal ring around the lens
  • the lens will be different from the current Noktor APS-C version
