Meyer-Optik Goerlitz unveils 'world’s fastest' 75mm F0.95 Nocturnus lens

From an DPReview news update article:

German lens manufacturer Meyer-Optik Goerlitz is expanding its range of F0.95 aperture lenses with the release of the Nocturnus 75mm. The lens will have the world’s widest aperture for the focal length, according to the company, and will offer sharp detail even when used wide open.

Like the Nocturnus 50mm F0.95 lll, this full-frame lens will be available in mounts for Leica M, Sony E and Fujifilm’s X series cameras, and will feature a 15-bladed iris that Meyer says will help to create bokeh ideal for portrait work. The aperture will be click-less to allow silent operation for filmmakers, and will close steplessly to F16.

The hand-made lens uses only five elements in five groups, and will have a closest focusing distance of 0.9m/35.4in. It will take a 82mm filter, will weigh about 750g/26.4oz and can be ordered in a black or a silver finish.

Meyer says it expects the lens to be delivered in December this year at a price of €4,000 (~$4,900 USD), but those ordering before 20th May will be able to get it for €1,900 (~$2,300 USD). For more information, visit the Meyer-Optik Goerlitz website at:  Meyer-Optik-Goerlitz
