Voigtländer Nokton 35mmF1.2: Electronic Contacts, Full Specs, Press Release and Official Sneak Peek

Share

We’ve shared hands on images of the new Voigtländer Nokton 35mm f/1.2 for Fujifilm X mount earlier today.

Now we spotted an official teaser to this lens at the Voigtländer website. It’s in German, so I’ll share first the google translated version and then the original one in German.

Also, a Polish distributor has shared the full specs and press release, so we share that one too here on FujiRumors (google translated via optyczne).

Also in German you can find the full press release at photoscala (images below).

PRESS RELEASE and SPECS (translated)

Voigtlander Nokton 35 mm f / 1.2 with Fujifilm X mount.

The Nokton 35mm F1.2 X was developed exclusively for the Fuji APS-C sensor and optimally matched to it. The focal length corresponds to about 53mm on Fuji APS-C cameras and thus offers an extremely diverse range of possible uses.

A high luminous intensity of F1.2 guarantees an enormous clearance potential with the possibility of particularly three-dimensional reproduction of details, in addition, an extremely smooth bokeh is mandatory.

As usual from Voigtländer, the new Nokton 35mm F1.2 X is made exclusively of glass and metal and guarantees full, yet sensitive handling.

The focus is purely manual, the aperture can be precisely adjusted in 1/3 steps and the electrical contacts enable communication with the camera (please see the notes at the end!).

Compact dimensions and a weight of only 196 grams make our new Nokton a pleasant everyday companion! A lens hood is included.

The market launch is planned for August 2021, the recommended retail price is 649 euros.

Sneak Peak

Voigtländer Nokton 35mm / 1: 1.2 X-Mount

It has been waiting for a long time, now the time has come: Voigtländer presents its first lens with Fuji X-Mount!

Original in German

Voigtländer Nokton 35mm / 1:1,2 X-Mount

Lange wurde darauf gewartet, jetzt ist es soweit: Voigtländer präsentiert sein erstes Objektiv mit Fuji X-Mount!

Das Nokton 35mm F1.2 X wurde exklusiv für den Fuji APS-C Sensor entwickelt und optimal darauf abgestimmt. Die Brennweite entspricht an Fuji APS-C Kameras etwa 53mm und bietet damit eine äußerst vielfältige Bandbreite an Einsatzmöglichkeiten. Eine hohe Lichtstärke von F1.2 gewährleistet ein enormes Freistellungspotential mit der Möglichkeit einer besonders plastischen Detailwiedergabe, darüber hinaus ist ein äußerst sanft verlaufendes Bokeh obligatorisch.

Eine Gegenlichtblende ist im Lieferumfang enthalten. Der Marktstart ist für August 2021 geplant, die unverbindliche Preisempfehlung liegt bei 649,- Euro.
