Voigtlander Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 SC Overview
A normal-length prime lens designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras, the Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 SC from Voigtlander blends the comfortable, unique focal length with an especially bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, which benefits working in low-light conditions as well as offering increased control over depth of field. A multi-coating is featured to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens also has a manual focus design, for working with subjects as close as 2.3′, and has a 10-blade diaphragm for a smooth bokeh quality.

- Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and offers increased control over depth of field.
- This multi-coated version of the Nokton Classic 40mm f/1.4 produces vivid yet accurate colors along with high contrast and saturation, making it well-suited for general shooting applications.
- Manual focus design permits smooth, refined control along with a minimum focusing distance of 2.3′.
