Cosina has just officially announced the new Voigtlander NOKTON 35mm F1.2 lens for Fujifilm XF mount. It is a large aperture standard lens designed exclusively for the Fujifilm X mount. The lens configuration uses a traditional double-Gauss type. A large aperture of F1.2 is realized in the style of “8-element” in which all lenses arranged almost symmetrically around the aperture position are composed of spherical surfaces. Despite its compact size, it has stable descriptive power even when the aperture is wide open, allowing you to enjoy smooth and large bokeh.
