NOCTILUX-M 75 f/1.25 ASPH.
A revolution in portrait photography.
Depth of focus redefined
For more than 50 years, the name Noctilux has been synonymous with exceptional technology, extending the limits of what is technically possible, and founded on the outstanding quality delivered by German mechanical and optical engineering.
The optical design of the Leica Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. features nine elements in six groups. Two aspherical elements are included in the design to ensure optimum imaging performance across the entire image frame. Thanks to a floating element, this is also maintained from the closest focusing distance of 0.85 m to infinity.
Only glass types with high anomalous partial dispersion and low chromatic dispersion were considered for use in the design and construction of the new Noctilux-M. This made it possible to increase the imaging performance of the Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. significantly, even compared to that of the Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH.
A particular emphasis has been placed on the use of a floating element within the complex focusing mechanism, guaranteeing a constantly high level of performance throughout the entire focusing range.

Exceptional design in every respect
The excellence of the 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH. is by no means limited to its technical performance. The visible and tactile quality and craftsmanship, and a focus on essential features so typical of Leica products also makes it particularly impressive.
Planes of focus that can be set with millimetre-precision, outstanding image performance at maximum aperture and unmistakeable bokeh: The name Noctilux has stood for excellent optical design for more than half a century.
