Legacy lens maker Cosina is launching a new super-fast lens for the Canon RF mount under its Voigtlander brand – the NOKTON 50mm f/1.0 Aspherical. With a staggering aperture of f/1.0, it is just wide enough to squeak onto our list of the fastest lenses ever

Previously, the fastest lens for Canon RF shooters has been the eye-wateringly expensive Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM, so it is very exciting to have a new, hopefully more affordable, and much more compact option for those who want the most extreme depth of field and bokeh.
