Optically 9/10

  • No dry coating cracks. Glass is really clean and clear.
I have had the pleasure of offering many 50mm 1.2 Noctilux over the last 20 years. I do think that this is THE Leica lens to have along side the 35mm f1.4 AA ASPHERICAL but the 50mm f1.2 does hold a special place in my heart. 
This is one of the most outstanding examples as a regular production 50mm f1.2 Noctilux I have had the pleausre to offer. Very pretty.

A must have and truly this example is a pleasure to have and enjoy! A sure investment on THE Leica lens to have! An all time classic gem!
