The fastest NIKKOR lens ever.
Introducing the much anticipated flagship of the NIKKOR Z line-up, 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—all in an immaculately constructed lens with precision feel and brilliant operability. Inspired by legacy. Built for the future. This is a masterpiece only Nikon could create.
Imagine the possibilities.
Noct is a specialized lens that delivers the ultimate in fine details, sharpness, bokeh and point-light rendering.
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.
Precision Manual Focusing
Let your creativity flow through your fingertips. 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.
Elaborate, Dramatic Bokeh
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.
Point Light, Totally on Point
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.
Ground Aspherical Lenses
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 molded-glass.
Dirt and Grime Resistance
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.
Lens Information Panel
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.
The NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens comes complete with the custom Trunk Case CT-101 and HN-38 Hood.
