A lens as unique as your photography

With its starting aperture of f0.95 and 15 steel aperture blades with anti-reflex coating, the Nocturnus 50/f0.95 creates an impression that virtually no other lens can achieve. The optical design enables a high degree of sharpness at focal level, even at maximum aperture, whilst it features a dream like bokeh with effects of shapes, colors and circular lights when blurred.

Exceptional light intensity

Combined with its exceptional light intensity, the Nocturnus III  f0.95 50mm is the ideal tool for working in low-light conditions or for shooting with available light. The infinitely adjustable aperture ring and manual focus control operate in near silence, making this lens extremely attractive for video use. 15 aperture blades ensure a pleasant, well-balanced bokeh.

NEW: With mounts for Sony-E, Leica-M & Fuji X

The Nocturnus 50 III  was specially developed for use on mirrorless full-format cameras with a Sony E, (NEW) Fuji X and (NEW!) Leica M mount (no rangefinder coupling supported).
The new Nocturnus III comes in a single wooden box with piano lacquer finish.

We will send you an email to ask you for your choice of Color and Mount after your purchase.

 scenes from our production
  • Meyer-Optik Art Lens & Bokeh Style
    At Meyer-Optik a lens is not only a piece of mechanical and optical construction but it is our goal to obtain a fine balance of sharpness, contrast and the unmet Meyer-Optik bokeh characteristics. Therefore we go a long ways in trial sessions and work closely with our reference photographers and get them in touch with our lens designers to to guarantee the optimal balance between all these aspects so that that what you will hold in your hands is a masterpiece and one of its kind. Creating the best lenses means that we want to hit just that sweet spot where the relation between sharpness and characteristic bokeh is at its best and allows you to favor creativity over tech specs.

  • Meyer-Optik Clickless Aperture Mechanic©
    Our high quality adjustment rings run smoothly and noiseless and allow the finest variations in focusing. The new Nocturnus III  is therefore ideal for videography. The completely enhanced mechanics and the improved focus ring are a pleasure to use .

  • Available for Modern Camera Systems
    Like all our lenses, the new Nocturnus III is a mirrorless design.  It will be available for Sony E, Fuji X & Leica-M (rangefinder coupling for Leica is not supported, Focussing via Live-View)
