First Noktor 50mm f/0.95 lens for sale on eBay!


The Noktor 50mm f/0.95 is out of Stock on their official website ( But if you want that lens you can get it on eBay right now (Click here)! I own the lens and I posted some image samples here and here. A short video made with the lens is available here. The lens fits on your MicroFourThirds camera without the need of any adapter. What’s my opinion about the lens? In short, don’t expect sharp images at 0.95. But I like the soft creamy results, and the lens is sharp enough when shooting videos.

Check out the auction on eBay: Noktor 50mm f/0.95 (Item location: Edmonton, AB, Canada)

Look for the epxensive but very good Canon 50mm f/0.95 if you absolutely need a good image quality wide open!

  • Reminder (again!) — The Canon 50/0.95 is NOT a Leica M-mount lens!

    It came only in a special mount for Canon 7-series rangefinder cameras. TV versions had the same mount plus a Canon-designed C-mount adapter.

    There are a fair number around that have been converted to M-mount by aftermarket technicians, and these work fine on an MFT camera with an M-to-MFT adapter. But if someone goes on eBay and buys any old Canon 50/0.95 assuming it will come in an M mount, that person may be in for a disappointment.

    (A good native-M-mount alternative is the Voigtlander 50/1.1, and compared to a mint Canon plus the cost of conversion, it may wind up voting about the same.)

      I corrected the post!

  • Thanks for noticing my auction.

    I’d really like to emphasize that the Noktor is a fantastic lens. I’ve consistently gotten complements on the photos I’ve taken with it (above and beyond the comments I usually get).

    The only reason I am selling is because I switched to an entirely different camera system and have been unsuccessful in finding a compatible adaptor.

    Having used the Noktor for a while, I think in general it got a bit of a bad rap in initial reviews. The images it produces have more of a ‘vintage lens’ feel somehow, but in my book at least that’s far from a bad thing.

      “I’ve consistently gotten complements on the photos I’ve taken with it”.

      And you sell it as new ?

      New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable).”

      Not the Noktor, the Nokton…

      • Gabi

        Thanks for the revision. I am getting old! ;)

  • siminona

    Gabi, it’s interesting that they’re selling the Voigtlander 25mm because they won’t actually have the lens until mid October.

    • Thibaud

    I am donating my Olympus gear to the local municipal dump

    haha yokes on you I don’t own any… yet! e-5 is going to be so sick. it will have a 56k modem, firewire, and miley cyrus sticker

    Oh boy, looking at those samples I feel I hit the lottery when I bought my Konika Hexanon 57mm F1.2 for around 200€, because besides beeing twice cheaper, it’s also twice as sharp at the same apertures… :)

  • rUY

    That is a CCTV lens, I don’t really care to that at that price. it won’t even worth a 100 bucks. and yes, Hexanon is far better than it.

  • GooGoo

    Can you do some typical CITY STREET NIGHT SHOTS and TWILIGHT NIGHTSHOTS with it, aperture wide open, no tripod, no long exposure, no adjustments? Thank you very much, much appreciated.

  • spanky

    Still a sub-standard, expensive lens with limited usefulness IMO. Wasn’t worth the $750 initial price, and it’s not worth the current auction price. Looks like someone thinks it does, though. Good luck with the auction.

  • Dave

    Anyone who buys this is indeed a fool with too much money to throw away.

  • TempTag

    With Voigtlander joining m4/3s I wonder if we’ll ever see a second Noktor lens – certainly not another at the inflated price of the 50mm.

    • Miroslav

      Yeah, c-mount lens prices are going to tumble with the Cosina announcement.

      Interesting to see Noktor out of stock now that we’ll have 25mm F0.95 available soon … I hope they make another lens though.

  • Mac

    I really couldn’t care less about a lens like this. the strive for large apertures is becoming a hype.
