Expert portrait photographers take heed — Leica has debuted the newest iteration of its Noctilux camera range. Leica’s Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH Lens is intended for closeup photography, with an unprecedented depth-of-field.

Weighing in at 2.3 pounds, the new Leica Noctilux-M shines when used to take photos from under three feet away from the subject. Naturally, it can take photos from all distances, but the camera features a particularly shallow depth of field, suitable for portrait photography. A reproduction ratio of 1:8.8 ensures that the imagery is crisp, while 11 iris blades guarantee that out-of-focus portions boast smooth bokeh.

Leica retailers and stores will carry the Noctilux-M in early 2018 for approximately $12,795 USD. Most recently, the camera brand revealed its latest pocketable mirrorless camera, the CL.
