Cosina has been on a roll the past few weeks, having launched a collection of lenses back in February and a pair of 40mm F2.8 primes for Leica cameras yesterday. Today, the company continues its release with the announcement of a new Voigtländer Nokton 23mm F1.2 manual focus lens for Fujifilm X-mount camera systems.

The manual lens, which offers a ~35mm full-frame equivalent field of view (and F1.8 equivalent aperture), is constructed of 10 elements in six groups, including one double-sided aspherical element and two low-dispersion elements. Cosina says the optical construction is ‘optimized for the image sensor of Fujifilm X-mount cameras’ and the lens features electrical contacts for transmitting EXIF data, focus confirmation and other information required for optimal performance with Fujifilm’s in-body image stabilization.

Other features include a clicked aperture ring, a 12-blade aperture diaphragm, an aperture range of F1.2 through F16, a minimum focusing distance of 18cm (7″) and a 46mm front filter thread. The lens measures roughly 59mm (2.3″) in diameter by 44mm (1.7″) long and weighs 214g (7.6oz).

The Cosina Voigtländer Nokton 23mm F1.2 Aspherical lens is scheduled to be released next month for ¥90,000 / ~$780.
