The Noctilux-M 1.0/50mm, presented in 1976 and regularly produced until 1998, is the successor to the legendary first Noctilux 1.2/50mm from the 1960s.
One do not have to say many words about both lenses, because their reputation precedes them and both lenses are true legends both among collectors and users as well.
Since the Noctilx 1.2/50mm is now traded almost exclusively among collectors at five-figure amounts, the Noctilux 1.0/50mm is also developing significantly in terms of demand and price.
The lens itself is characterized by a color reproduction and nuance that can hardly be described in words and whoever had the luck and privilege to take pictures with this lens would not want to do without it.
During the production period from 1975 to 1998, there were three different versions of the Noctilux-M 1.0/50mm.
The first version had a removable lens hood and filter thread E58. In the following version (from 1981) the lens hood was changed and the lens barrel was modified; the filter thread was now E60.
The third and last version followed in 1994 and again brought a modification of the lens barrel and as a new feature a built-in lens hood.
The offered Noctilux-M 1:1.0/50mm comes from year 1981 and is in very good to mint condition.
Total production: approx. 4.700 – 4.900 units of the 2. version
