Leica has announced the Noctilux “Titan”, a special edition of the Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH. It will be limited to 100 lenses worldwide. In the UK, it will retail for £14,000, including tax.
The first Leica Noctilux-M was introduced in 1966 and gained a reputation as an optical masterpiece. Each of the previous Noctilux generations redefined the limits of what was technically possible, raising imaging performance to yet higher levels. As an example, the Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH surpassed the perception of the human eye. This Wetzlar tour de force now appears in an exclusive special edition: the Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH. “Titan”.
All visible components of the special edition are made of solid titanium, a lightweight and exceptionally resistant metal, giving the lens an elegant appearance and making it the ideal complement to all previously released Leica M-Cameras in titanium finish.
Limited to 100 pieces worldwide, the Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH “Titan” achieves images with an unmistakable character, just like the series version.
