New 2018 Voigtlander 50/1.2 Nokton Leica M Aspherical

modern sharp multi coated ASPH lens with the look and sharpness of the very popular Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 !

50mm f/1.2 Nokton M Aspherical prototype shown mounted on Leica M-P
I've talked with the 50/1.2 lens designers, the same guys who designed the extremely popular 40/1.2 FE lens.
They told me the 50/1.2 M mount has the same look and IQ of the 40/1.2

Weight 344 grams! the 50mm f/1.1 weights 433 grams. How is 344 grams possible for such a lens?

That looks like a very handy fast lens weight wise, about 90 grams lighter than the hefty f 1.1 50mm CV lens.

I tried the f1.1 lens and its weight swayed my decision not to buy it.

An f/1.2 lens is larger. Btw, my Summilux 50mm f/1.4 v1 weights 323g.

Erik,

Not sure what point you are attempting to make,
but you are wrong if are trying to imply Cosina listed an incorrect weight.

I have handled the lens. It is substantially smaller and lighter weight than the 50/1.1

I'm sorry, I was not clear enough. I find it indeed remarkable (and positive) that a fast lens like this is so light weight, indeed about 100g lighter than the f/1.1. That is what I ment to say.

I remember reading it in Puts book about lenses. In ultrafast primes every 0.1 requires a lot.

I'm glad they decreased the minimum focus from 1m to 0.7m. That was the reason why I sold my 50 1.1
