Classic camera fans will be delighted to learn that Leica is bringing back its Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 lens for modern machines.

Built to the German camera company’s exceptional standards with a wide f/1.2 aperture, the reissued version of the lens manages to maintain its impressive image quality and bokeh effects while offering greater functionality for modern cameras. Even with a slight exterior redesign, most of its construction from 1966 has been maintained and even comes in a transparent container just like the original. It also comes in either a silver or black finish, so you can pick one that goes best with your camera body.

Limited to just 100 made globally, Lecia’s revival of the Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 lens is now available over on its website for a price of $16,395 USD.

Elsewhere in tech, a YouTuber managed to modify his classic iPod to stream music from Spotify.
