Light Lens Lab shows off prototype 50mm F1.2 ASPH lens for Leica M-mount cameras

Obscure optics manufacturer Light Lens Lab has shared the first product shots and sample images for its new 50mm F1.2 ASPH ‘1966’ lens for Leica M-mount camera systems.

As reported by Photo Rumors, the lens shown off in the images is a prototype, but it’s probably safe to assume the image quality won’t change much from now to the production version – for better or worse. No detailed specifications have been revealed, but from looking at the images, it’s clear the lens features a 15-blade aperture diaphragm and has an aperture range of F1.2 through F16. It also appears as though at least some of the optical elements are coated.

The focus ring features a scalloped and knurled design, while the aperture ring is just knurled. There are also distance markings towards the rear of the lens. Below is a sample gallery of images, posted to Flickr by Photo Rumors:

NO pricing information is available for the 50mm F1.2 ASPH ‘1966’ lens for Leica M-mount at this time, but we have inquired with Photo Rumors for additional information.
