→ Nikon Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens review by Richard Haw:

This lens is super-sharp even wide-open it’s hard to believe what I saw until I zoomed-into the photos at home on a larger monitor, the field seems flat it makes there resulting photos look like they were shot at a smaller aperture. I couldn’t believe that something like this could be engineered. Usually, you will get a small part where things are in-focus and the rest is blurry but not with this lens, it’s makes photos taken with it wide-open more than usable. I am still in disbelief as I write and inspect the photos. There are subtle traces of chromatic aberration which looks good because they blended really well into the rest of the photo, making this more of a feature than a flaw.

The new Nikon Noct is exceptional in its build, image quality and aspiration. Undeniably big, heavy and expensive, it’s impractical for the majority of Z-camera shooters, but actually more practical than I’d imagined. Its image quality is stunning. It’s not easy hitting focus manually at the maximum aperture, but good technique and Z-camera features like Focus Peaking and Zoom On/Off help. For portraits particularly, the combination of the 58mm field-of-view and creamy bokeh produce an other-worldly feel that’s almost unrivalled. The Noct truly is the type of lens that will set your photography apart.

The ultimate competition to Leitz Noctilux is here and I must say that I´m impressed. I love my Noctilux, and i still do, but I must say that the combo Nikon Z6 and Noct Nikkor is a winner in every respect except when it comes to size. The Nikkor is dramatically better tuned when it comes to chromatic aberration and it is a sharper lens on 0,95.
