Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.2 ASPH Review

Lenstips reviewed the new Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.2 ASPH and as usually Voigtlander’s build quality is great, but the image is a little soft at f/1.2 and f/1.4 which limits the lenses ability to resolve. You can read the full review here or see the pros/cons below:


  • solid, moderately big casing made of metal,
  • record-breaking resolution values in frame centre on stopping down,
  • sensible image quality on the edge of the APS-C sensor,
  • slight longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • negligible lateral chromatic aberration,
  • excellent distortion correction.


  • weak image quality in the frame centre by f/1.2 and f/1.4,
  • resolution on the edge of full frame sensor leaves a lot to be desired,
  • huge vignetting on full frame,
  • noticeable coma.
