    Optics to prove the powerful capabilities of the manufacturer, a product for display at exhibition stands. Usually this is stored under glass. Of course, there will be single customers for such a miracle as a reflex mirror trimmed with salamander leather or a "Watering can" in Swarovski crystals. Doing such things is prestigious.

    • Pavel Gorbunov

      “This is usually stored under glass.”

      Under the bulletproof glass ...

    • Anton

      Yeah, TFP to shoot ....

  • Andrij

    Svitlosila vishche 1? Tse is unscientific !!!! Zbochentsі.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      They make 0.95, most likely because it “sounds cool” and “less than one.” At the same time, the difference between F / 0.95 and F / 1 is small. F / 1, for example, has an autofocus Canon 50 / 1.0L, which is already 30 (thirty!) Years old! And 0.95 is for many, just not with that image quality.

    • Boris

      As for the scientific, I will not say: not a professor. But here, the fact that Kenon had a lens with an aperture of 0,9 on the conveyor, I know for a long time, even in film times. And even earlier, some “German”.

      • Roman

        1.0. And autofocus. Then, in principle, they made much cheaper 1.2 in almost the same case.

        • Victor

          Still 0.95.

          And he stands by the way on ebay from 3k, of course, bu. About sharpness on the open modestly at the same time silent.

        • Roman

          Ah, it's 0.95 for rangefinders with addictive bokeh. Well, formally ...

  • Vladimir

    2 kg of weight! Honestly, I thought that he would remain in development. Why the hell do even one copy?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      So you think Nikon wouldn’t have made such a lens?

      • Sergei

        Arkady, here I am rooting for Nikon, but I don’t understand what and why they’ve been doing recently.
        ZK Nikon had a known problem with the lens mount, which did not allow making autofocus ultra-fast lenses, as the hole is small and the contact group will overlap the rear lens of the lens and lead to unpleasant artifacts. Then they had a 50mm 1.2 lens, if I’m not mistaken, but it was manual.
        And now they fixed the problem with the mount and contacts, made a high-aperture glass and ... it is manual again. Well, as if in what profit, one asks? Even the price would not be so bad if there was autofocus. I understand that there are heavy lenses, everything’s done, but we don’t live in the Stone Age. In addition, the mirror Canon had an autofocus lens of a similar aperture, and it would not hurt them. Or did Nikon decide to look like Lake and Zeiss? If they’re not mistaken, they have manual rulers. From the point of view of the consumer, it looks more like the inability to do autofocus, and not like the “exclusivity” of the lens.

        PS Arkady, could you file some free SSL certificate on the site, otherwise people here enter personal data.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          This lens is more for status.
          Nikon will soon release 50 / 1.2 and everyone will be happy.
          I will do SSL.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          SSL (https) done

  • Anonymous 2.0

    It has more marketing than practical meaning. This glass is taken in order to speak with me f0.95 for $ 8000.
    In practice, it is more expensive than f1.2 times 4 times, but image quality 4 times does not improve ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      F / 1.2 for work, and manual 0.95 only for the “most of the most”. But it’s still nice that this is a NOCT with classic 58 mm and uncompromising performance.
      And do not forget that this Nikon is just the likeness of really expensive premium lenses, for example, such as Leica Noctilux-M 50 / 0.95.

  • Alexander

    If people buy and actively use expensive manual glass manufactured by Carl Zeiss, then this can be used.

  • koba

    very interesting if you were presented with it, how often would you use it? 2kg for about fifty dollars! Of course, it will have outstanding optical qualities, it is not for nothing that it is so large, in fact the center will work and even on an open one will give better results than others, and even with 4 low dispersed lenses and three aspherical ones! Zeiss and Fochtlander are sure to be happy, from now on their products will go into the category of cheap, their sales will increase, as they will no longer seem expensive ...

  • Boris

    How we readers are so funny! Well, the company made a particularly high-tech little thing - yes to health! She didn’t break it - DID! All the same for us, the fellows of the photographic! Yes, we can’t afford it. And for nothing! Well, rejoice that someone will be able to work with him: he needs, and he found! That we wash the bones to everyone and everything ?!
    You and I are also not deprived of the attention of optical companies: it’s breathtaking from the possibilities of choice! Can. we just snickered, huh?

  • koba

    Nikon announced on its website that it could not satisfy the demand for this lens, so customers now have to wait about a month. In China, even in our relatively small city (only 5,7 million), I have already seen it with two photographers ... They gave me such!
