    By; Shaima Hassan


    Setting new benchmarks, Nikon Middle East FZE., is pleased to

    introduce its addition to the S-Line range, the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S

    Noct. This Noct lens offers the highest rendering performance in

    NIKKOR lenses to produce meticulous point-image reproduction,

    impeccable high-resolving power, crisp details, and beautiful bokeh,

    all of which allow users to enjoy shooting at a maximum aperture of





    This lens inherits the finest design and high precision feel of the

    renowned Noct lenses from Nikon. Featuring exceptional optical

    performance that embodies Nikon’s wealth of optical expertise and

    complementing the Z mount’s large inner diameter of 55mm and short

    flange distance of 16mm, the lens brings out the beauty of portraits

    and the brightness of the stars in astrophotography. Exceptionally

    sharp resolution and clear rendering is realised even at the maximum

    aperture of f/0.95.




    The state-of-the-art NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct delivers

    ground-breaking optical performance along with superior functionality

    that is designed to exceed expectations with the Z mount. A testament

    to delivering ultimate optical performance thanks to the largest mount

    diameter in the industry, this new Noct is perfect for those who want

    to experience unprecedented imaging expression,” said Narendra Menon,

    Managing Director, Nikon Middle East FZE.




    NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct Primary Features




    Ground-breaking Optical Performance


    Capture dramatic nightscapes with ease with the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S

    Noct. While the original Noct rendered point light sources only as

    thick point images, this new FX-format Noct lens reproduces them as

    precise point images that showcases the best in nightscapes of the

    starry sky. Realising a f/0.95 maximum aperture that only the Z mount

    can achieve, makes it the brightest of all NIKKOR lenses. Crafted with

    sophisticated lens elements with a high refractive index and Nikon’s

    very own ARNEO Coat bring exceptionally well-defined and crisp images

    even when a light source is located within the frame.



    Latest Optical Technology for the Highest-Class S-Line model


    With the newly adopted ground aspherical lens element, a higher

    surface accuracy and improved flexibility in material selection is

    achieved to result in ultimate optical performance and excellent

    minimisation of various optical imperfections including distortion and

    spherical aberration. For clarity with almost inexistent ghost and

    flare effects, the employment of the ARNEO Coat realises ultra-clear

    and crisp images. In an ideal synergy between technologies, the ARNEO

    Coat works with the Nano Crystal Coat to effectively minimise

    reflection over the entire visible light range. This lens construction

    is crafted to deliver a bright lens with its structure that seeks to

    receive as much light as possible with remarkably improved

    compensation capability of many common aberrations.




    Fine Craftmanship and Superb Operability with High-Precision Feel


    From its build to its technology, every component has been thoroughly

    thought of. This magnificent Noct lens, featuring a stunning exterior

    design that is finished with metallic material machined from a metal

    ingot, also comes with a hood that has felt-lined on the inside which

    helps to further prevent light reflection.




    For absolute ease in functionality, the lens information panel enables

    instant confirmation of aperture, focus distance and depth of field

    even in dimly lit environments. The number of functions that can be

    assigned to the lens Fn button has been increased to match those of

    the Fn1/Fn2 buttons on the camera body.




    Delivering stable autoexposure, the electromagnetic diaphragm

    mechanism within the lens accurately controls the electronic signals

    from the camera. A highly precise focus ring facilitates focusing with

    the appropriate amount of torque and a large angle of rotation even

    with the maximum aperture of f/0.95. Comfortable shooting operation of

    stills and movies is also ensured with the newly adopted control ring

    to which selected functions can be assigned. The same control ring

    also minimises noise caused by changes of settings so a silent and

    smooth capture on video in particular is made possible




    Completing the design of the lens is the superior anti-fouling

    performance ensured with Nikon’s fluorine coat that is applied to the

    front lens element, effectively repelling dust and dirt even when it

    adheres to the lens surface. A dust- and drip-resistant performance

    rounds up the lens’ perfection.
