TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST STANDARD PRIME LENS

Voigtländer NOKTON 40 mm F1.2 Aspherical

For hands-on photographers who understand the charms of a fast, manual focus lens that delivers notable sharpness and clarity, the Nokton 40mm delivers even when set at its f/1.2 aperture. Previously introduced for the Leica M, Sony E mount and Nikon Z mount, this new lens couples with the Canon RF mount, making it one of the first independent lenses to be accepted into the RF club. The lens contains two aspherical elements, which notably suppress spherical aberrations and distortions, plus allows for close focusing down to 0.98 ft (0.30 meters). A ten-bladed diaphragm brings added charm to bokeh images, plus allows for candid and creative work in very low light conditions. The lens allows for clicked or click-less aperture change, a welcome feature for videographers.
