Boasting a manual focus mechanism with an all-metal helical design, the lens ensures seamless focusing. Tailored to modern mirrorless cameras, this Voigtlander Nokton 50mm F1 Aspherical RF version is optimized for Canon EOS R system cameras, aligning with the sensor characteristics of the system.

The aperture ring features a built-in click-on/off mechanism, and the focus ring’s rotation direction mirrors that of Canon lenses. Lens-to-body communication, EXIF, in-body stabilization, focus magnification, focus peaking, and focus guide are supported by most bodies.

Noteworthy as the fastest full-frame Voigtlander lens from Cosina, it is already available for Leica M and Nikon Z camera systems.

Price and availability

The Voigtlander Nokton 50mm F1 Aspherical RF lens is currently purchasable on, with an anticipated price of around $1,799. The package includes a lens hood.
