The Leica Noctilux-M was first introduced in 1966 and gained a reputation as an optical masterpiece that would soon become one of the best Leica-M lenses that any Leica user dreams of owning.  Each of the previous Noctilux generations redefined the limits of what was technically possible and raised imaging performance to a higher level. 

This masterpiece now appears in an exclusive special edition: the Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH. “Titan”.

All visible components of this new special edition are made of solid titanium, a lightweight and exceptionally resistant metal that gives the lens an elegant appearance and makes it the ideal complement to all previously released Leica M-Cameras in titanium finish.

These new lenses will be limited to 100 pieces worldwide and sold at the staggering price of £14,000.00 (approximately $17,5402.50). The Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH. “Titan” achieves images with an unmistakable character, just like the series version. With its extremely shallow depth of field at open aperture, it produces pictures with a unique bokeh and inimitable aesthetics.

Even in low light, the Noctilux-M brings out the finest details and impresses with a high-contrast and brilliant imaging performance.

The Leica Noctilux-M 50 f/0.95 ASPH. “Titan” with an engraved special serial number will be available globally at selected Leica Stores from September, 14th 2023.
