Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH Edition 0.95 prototype lens available for sale


A rare collectible Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH Edition 0.95 "prototype B" lens is now available for sale at the Leica Store San Francisco for $24,995.

The Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH Edition 0.95 lens was announced in November, 2015.

Here is the product description:

The Noctilux 0.95 Edition is one of the most unique noctilux lenses ever to roll off Leica's production lines in Wetzlar. Built to resolve past the capabilities that are known in any other fast primes or even the faculties of human vision, the Noctilux is a legendary benchmark of photographic optical engineering. This special "0.95 Edition" is limited, respectively, to 95 units world wide and stands visual representation of the elegantly unique images the Noctilux creates. Featuring the same optical design as the regular Noctilux 50mm 0.95 ASPH this special edition has an added bit of elegance. The exterior of the "0.95 Edition" features Leica's newly developed high-gloss anodized aluminum surface. The markings on the lens are left unpainted except one, the 0.95 f-stop mark.

This lens will be available in extremely limited quantities worldwide, and Leica Store SF/Camera West Boutiques will have very limited stock.

This specific lens is a prototype of this already rare blend of Leica and S.T. Dupont craftsmanship. This could very well be one of the most collectible 0.95 Noctilux's on the market today. The Prototype reads "prototyp B" the the back side of the barrel, and features a matte black cap instead of the glossy cap that comes with other 0.95 edition lenses.
