Depth of field redefined
For more than 50 years, the name Noctilux has been synonymous with exceptional optical design, pushing the limits of what is technically possible, and founded on the outstanding quality delivered by German engineering.
The new Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is set to become a legend in its own right with its incredibly shallow depth of field, in combination with exceptional imaging performance, and a uniquely soft bokeh.
Its optical design allows precise, exceptionally detailed isolation of subjects from their background to create images of unique character. With a focal length of 75 mm, it is perfectly suited for the creation of portraits with a natural look. An ideal lens for M and SL photographers who are seeking something truly special and know how to make best use of creativity in their imagery.
The optical design of the Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. features nine elements in six groups. Two aspherical elements are included in the design to ensure optimum imaging performance across the entire frame. Thanks to a floating element, accurate and sharp focusing is maintained from the minimum focusing distance of 0.85m all the way to infinity.
This exceptionally short focusing distance for a fast lens, and a reproduction ratio of 1:8.8, underline the particular suitability of the lens for portraits and highly detailed close-ups.
The harmonious bokeh of the lens is the result of the round aperture created by the eleven blades of its iris. An integrated, lockable lens hood shades the lens from stray light and protects it from accidental impacts. Thanks to its enormous resolving power, the Leica 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is future-proof and delivers exceptional quality when capturing images onto high resolution sensors or cropping into the composition.

Leica E60 ND 4-Stop 16x Filter, Black
Leica’s new line of neutral density filters are designed to reduce the amount of light coming through the lens by 4 stops. This allows you to significantly lengthen shutter speeds, experiment with motion blur and, for example, soften the motion of flowing water or clouds. It also makes moving persons or vehicles vanish from the scene when shooting with longer exposure times.
Alternatively, these filters allow you to shoot at wide open aperture in strong lighting conditions when otherwise the camera’s fastest shutter speed would be exceeded resulting in an overexposed image. They are manufactured to the same optical standards and with the same aluminum used in Leica M lenses.
The 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.
