A recreation of the mythical and highly sought-after 50mm f/1.2 ASPH from 1966. Down to the lanthanide-infused glass code named: "900403". We are proud of our development with the polishing aspherical process, using classic high-temperature grinding and polishing processes. There were several improvements to the original lens:

  • Half-stop aperture for more accurate exposure value
  • Improvements in render performance/sharpness
  • E49 filter Thread
