Lens Test: Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH
1 December 2001
Excerpt: Not only is this $10,000 gem the priciest lens we've ever tested, it's the fastest one made-and the first manualfocus we've had on our bench in years. A full-framer, it scales up to 67mm on the Leica M8 and M8.2. Its two huge aspheric elements are made of ground and polished (not hybrid or molded) glass. Clad in anodized matte-black aluminum, it weighs more than the M8-enough to tip the whole rig forward-and the barrel blocks a fraction of the viewfinder.
