The Nikon Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is a one-of-a-kind manual focus 58mm lens with the largest aperture of any NIKKOR ever: f/0.95. Made possible by innovations of the Z mount, it achieves a new dimension of performance—vast depth-of-field control and elaborate bokeh for portraiture and video, superb point-image reproduction and low-light performance for night landscapes and astrophotography, outstanding resolving power for industrial and scientific applications.
This lens has a manual focus design for fine-tuned control that makes it suitable for both photo and video applications. Its optical design incorporates a large-diameter ground aspherical element, which reduces spherical aberrations and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and accurate rendering. An ARNEO coat, along with a Nano Crystal Coat and fluorine coat, has also been applied to individual elements to greatly suppress flare and ghosting for clear, colour-accurate imagery when working in strong lighting conditions.
Balancing its optical merits, the new Noct has also been updated with an assignable Fn button for lens-based control over shooting settings. A top lens information panel is also incorporated, which allows you to quickly confirm aperture, focus distance, and depth of field settings. Also, like other S-series Z-mount lenses, there is a programmable control ring that can be set for intuitive adjustment over either aperture or exposure compensation.
With unprecedented rendering, even at the maximum aperture of f/0.95, the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct delivers sharp resolution and clear shots near or far – perfect for everything from portraiture to landscapes. Utilising the latest in optical innovation and technology, the lens features large-diameter ground aspherical lens elements with higher surface accuracy, dramatically improving aberration correction for sharper, cleaner shots.
ARNEO Coat anti-reflective coating system achieves ultra-low reflectance for vertical incidental light. Ghosting and flare effects are greatly reduced especially with the combination with Nano Crystal Coat. Superb point-image reproduction ensures the causes of sagittal coma flare is entirely eliminated across the frame, making the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct perfect for capturing clear night landscapes and astronomical shots.
Noct renders fine details with such precision, such unwavering sharpness across the entire frame, stills and videos take on an almost hyper-real characteristic.
Noct is designed to be shot wide open. Noct achieves outstanding resolving power from the maximum aperture by intensively compensating the various aberrations that are usually noticeable with fast lenses. Shine through low light and control depth of field like never before.
Nikon engineers have achieved optimum continuity of bokeh with Noct. But it's not just the bokeh that's so impressive—it's the ideal smooth transition from the tack-sharp focal plane to the beautifully blurred background. Even when your subject-background distance is inadequate, Noct produces stunning depth and emphasis.
Shooting point light sources like stars and nighttime cityscapes at wide apertures usually requires post-production correction for sagittal comma—an aberration where points of light appear distorted, like birds spreading their wings. Noct intensively eliminates sagittal comma across the entire frame, so point light sources are captured as perfect points of light, even at the peripheries.
When subjects are backlit, incidental light can streak across the frame causing unwanted ghosting, reflections and flaring. To counteract these anomalies and ensure crisp, clean images, Noct employs two of Nikon’s most advanced lens coatings: Nano Crystal Coat for eliminating incidental light from a diagonal direction and new ARNEO Coat for eliminating incidental light from a vertical direction.
Noct adopts a large-diameter ground aspherical lens element crafted from the finest glass, with outstanding surface accuracy. It has a high refractive index unattainable with moulded-glass.
Nikon's proprietary dust, dirt and moisture repellent Fluorine Coat provides enhanced antifouling performance. Noct is ready for the harshest conditions.
Provides accurate diaphragm control in-sync with the fastest shutter speeds for clear, even exposures during continuous shooting.
With its high-grade exterior, the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct looks and feels elegant with its intricate metalwork and ‘Noct’ engraving. A high precision focus ring makes it ideal for shooting stills and movies, allowing you to smoothly adjust focus with extreme accuracy with the appropriate amount of torque. By assigning functions such as aperture and exposure with the control ring, you can easily make this lens perfect for shooting silently.
A built-in OLED information panel offers quick, convenient confirmation of aperture, focus distance and depth-of-field, even in dark situations. An expandable depth-of-field scale helps you determine the minimum and maximum distances at any given f/stop—excellent for maximizing hyperfocal distance for stills or video.
With an inscribed Noct logo, distinctive silver line and each exterior part finished in high-quality metal the Noct is a truly superb one-of-a-kind lens.
Compose with pinpoint accuracy using one of the finest manual focusing mechanisms ever put into a NIKKOR lens, and utilize the clarity of Z series cameras' focus peaking. Adjust focus with extreme accuracy and natural torque, ideal for both still and movie shooting.
The control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical) or for exposure compensation.
A convenient customizable function button for streamlining your shooting experience. Preview depth of field, lock focus, magnify to confirm focus and more. The number of assignable functions has been increased to match those of the photo mode Fn1/Fn2 buttons on the camera body.
