From Nikon: Nikon is currently developing the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct, a standard prime manual focus lens. It will pursue ultimate optical performance and will be positioned at the top of the S-Line.

In addition to this lens, Nikon is planning on releasing a variety of new lenses. Nikon will continue to expand its line of attractive, high-performance NIKKOR Z lenses that further extend photographers' creative expressions.

The NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct that Nikon is currently developing will be a large aperture, standard 58mm prime focal-length, manual-focus lens positioned at the very top of the S-Line. It will symbolise the Nikon Z mount system's new dimension in optical performance.

Z7 Noct


It has inherited the design concept behind the original AI Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2, a standard prime lens released in 1977, named for “nocturne” (a musical composition inspired by or evocative of the night), and popular for its ability to finely reproduce point light sources as point images. This new Noct lens that is currently in development will take advantage of advanced design flexibility, afforded by the Z mount, pursuing ultimate optical performance. Development continues with the goals of achieving an extremely fast maximum aperture of f/0.95, offering the ultimate in NIKKOR rendering performance with superior detail and sharpness. Additionally, the goal is to achieve beautiful blur characteristics, or bokeh, with good continuity, and ensuring outstanding point-image formation capabilities for more compelling, three-dimensional imaging.

*Information regarding the release of this product will be announced at a later date.

I'm sure it will be absolutely wonderful, but manual focus?
Two focusing rings - Is one the out of focus Bokeh effect. Also all those buttons and a tripod mount. What static subject wants this minimal in focus lens?
