After more than 30 years, Leica breaks its own record and introduces the world’s highest-speed aspherical lens: the Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. It is the successor to the famous Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/1 ASPH., which was added to the product range in 1975. Thanks to state-of-the-art optics and mechanical technologies, Leica has succeeded in achieving substantial improvements over the previous model. With nearly identical dimensions, a noticeable increase in lens speed has been achieved. The extremely shallow depth of field (DOF) at open aperture produces portraits and detailed studies of unequalled aesthetic effect. Even when just slightly stopped down, the result is outstanding image quality, comparable to the Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH, which is considered the best standard lens ever produced. When used in available light photography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. Even the light from one candle can be sufficient for handheld photography. A “floating element” retains high image quality even in the close-up range. Vignetting and distortion have also been visibly improved compared to the 50mm f/1.

Leica UVa II Filter, E60, Black
Leica’s new line of series II UVa filters are designed to offer maximum protection for your lenses without impacting image quality. Manufactured to the same optical standards and with the same aluminum used in Leica M lenses, Leica’s UVa II filters not only protect the front of your lens against scratches and dirt, but they also reduce the blue cast normally associated with photographing in strong daylight.
All of the UVa II filters are multicoated high grade optical glass to reduce internal reflections, and are lighter than their predecessors thanks to aluminum versus brass construction. Each filter includes a 2 year Leica warranty and protective plastic case.
