The NOKTON 50mm F1.2 Aspherical E-mount is a high-speed manual focus lens optimized for the full frame imaging sensors of Sony mirrorless cameras.
50mm F1.2 standard lens could be called a special lens for photo enthusiasts. During the middle to late 20th century, when the maximum aperture of fast standard lenses was generally F2 or F1.4, a 50mm lens with F1.2 aperture was favored by professional photographers as a special fast lens. Because of this, even today many photo enthusiasts are still captured by the tradition and charm of this lens.
The NOKTON 50mm F1.2 Aspherical E-mount is a newly designed standard lens with today’s technology for specifications that bring out the best in a high-speed standard lens. By using two out of eight elements, each with two aspherical surfaces, it realizes a compact size while having a large aperture. With this lens, you can enjoy comfortable handling well-balanced with camera body and gentle, ample bokeh.

Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also enables greater control over focus position for selective focus applications.
Two aspherical elements are incorporated at the front and the rear of the eight elements, six groups construction, and helps to limit spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
One partial dispersion element is featured in the optical design and helps to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve higher clarity and color fidelity.
Manual focus design permits smooth, refined control along with a minimum focusing distance of 1.5'.
A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
Selective Aperture Control System produces a stepless, de-clicked aperture ring, which provides silent and smooth exposure adjustment that is well-suited for video application. The aperture ring can also be configured to utilize traditional 1/3-stop clicks for more intuitive tactile control over exposure settings.
Contacts transfer all Exif data between the camera and lens in order to permit full use of camera functions, including focus magnification, image stabilization, and lens corrections.
