Compared to the Leica 35/1.4 FLE, the new CV 35/1.5 is 10mm shorter and the Type I almost half the weight (188 vs 320g). The filter thread is also way smaller (39mm vs 46mm). The Type II Black Paint is made of Brass while the Leica is aluminum and it's still lighter! (284g vs 320g)


0.5 MFD..... Gonna have to train my ears to hear the Fred 'click'

Look gorgeous. I’ll pre-order type 1 aluminum. This will couple nice with the 35 Lux Pre-ASPH. And both are tiny and can be carried together but offer different looks. The ZM 35/1.4 and 35 Lux ASPH aren’t too clean wide open, so this new CV’s size might be just fine rendering wise comparatively.

I am hoping we get an updated 75/2 to 2.4 CV lens.

The new CV 35/1.5 Nokton optical design is similar to the CV 35/1.2 III Nokton with the same number of elements. Both are equipped with two double-sided asphericals at the same location. The f/1.5 lens is much smaller and lighter though.

None of these lenses have a floating system so I'm expecting great results wide open with the subject focused a mid-distance and lower resolution/contrast (higher SA) at close distance, especially MFD.

Here are both optical designs side by side:

TOP: CV 35/1.2 III Nokton
BOTTOM: CV 35/1.5 Nokton




not to scale

Interesting! Here's the Ultron 35mm f/1.7 for comparison:



A bit more different but still a related 9-element design, esp. the rear groups

Any guesses how much it will cost?

At Mapcamera it's listed for ¥88,200 which today translates to US$ 592.79

My guess is U$899 (same price as the CV 28/2 II)

$900 hundred was my guess as well I'll be fine though if it comes in under $1,100.

Interestingly, the angle of view for this class of lens:

ZM 35/1.4 = 62.15°
35 Lux ASPH = 62.5°
CV 35/1.2iii = 61.53
CV 35/1.5 = 61.7°
Sigma 35i = 63.4°
GM 35/1.4 = 63°
RX1 = 63°

As usual, this new CV will continue as a narrow or "longer" 35mm lens. I recall doing multiple controlled tests with many 35mm's--the RX1 and 35i are wide, the CV's run long.

12 aperture blades, take that Leica! 😁

On a serious note, maybe a little disappointed with no floating elements design but hope it'll have a bit of a vibe of the 40/1.2, which is part of the reason I love my 35cron asph v1, just wish it's faster so I can have character at 1.4 and sharp f2 for night city scape.

Can't wait for the reviews!

The dark versions recall the ZM 50/1.5 in spades but with a focus tab--which is great.

Official Japan price for the Type 1 is 110000 and Type II is 120000 yen. For comparison, official Japan price of 50/1.5 II is 100000 for the plain and 115000 for the Panda version. It seems original U.S. price for the 2 50/1.5 II were 949$ and 1049$ so the new 35/1.5 might also be up there, unless the strong dollar is taken more into account in U.S. pricing now. Japan price of the lens looks really cheap now since yen is at a record low vs. USD, but compared to other CV lenses it's pretty much aligned and higher than e.g. 50/1.5 II ever was.

Official price of 28/2 II (both versions) in Japan has been 100000 yen, and it was around 10% cheaper than the new 35/1.5 at launch. Nowadays the brass Type II versions can be bought as new at 70+K yen whereas the Type I version has been sticking to 88K yen (street price) for some reason.

How do we think this will compare with the 35/1.4 Nokton II that's the same weight (aluminum version)? With the aspherical elements it should show less spherical-aberration glow when wide open but with the front filter being 39mm vs 43mm of the 35/1.4 Nokton II I'm worried there will be more vignetting wide open with the smaller front element..

The Type II is listed for €1099 in Germany, although 120.000 yen would only be around €829. I would expect the US price to be similar to the €-price or slightly lower, maybe $999?

The relatively compact size of this new lens has my attention, and, there are the two aspherical elements, too. As much as I really do love the Zeiss Distagon 1,4/35mm ZM, there are times when a smaller 35mm lens would be desirable.

And on Leica M mount the 24 f/3.8 Asph is pretty spectacular and relatively inexpensive for a current Leica M, and the latest 24 f/2.8 is also an excellent lens. The Zeiss ZM 25 f/2.8 is also a very nice lens and can be had at a quite decent price. I think Voigtlander will eventually build a 24 or 25 for Leica M mount again, but it is not as though it is a hole for the mount. There are some really nice alternatives.


Just one minor point: The Leica Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH is, indeed, quite spectacularly good, but, sadly, it is no longer “current.” Leica is not producing 24mm M lenses, at this time.

I only recently discovered this Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH lens, finding a pristine pre-owned sample, and was so impressed that I searched for, and found, another one, similarly well-preserved, and bought it, too, as a hedge against mishaps and loss, as the ending production will make future acquisition more difficult. (The only true insurance “policy” is a spare lens.) Plus, now and then, I like to shoot with an M10 and an M Type 246 Monochrom, at the same time, with identical lenses affixed to each. Most you-tubers, and other prominent influencers, had not yet “discovered” the Elmar-M 24mm ASPH, at the time I found mine, so, I did not have to pay collectors’ prices.

I had actually acquired a pre-owned Zeiss 25mm ZM just before I bought my Leica Elmar-M 24mm ASPH lenses, and the latter have occupied my attention to the extent that the Zeiss sits, unused, though every millimeter of focal length, wider than 28mm or so, makes a significant difference, so, I will try to work with the Zeiss, soon.

Seems reasonably small. Very small and light for a 35/1.5. Let’s hope it’s good.

Usually the brass versions costs $100 more than the aluminum. Since the dollar/euro are pretty much equal now, perhaps the pricing will be around U$999 (aluminum) and U$1,099 (brass).
