Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 FE Coming Feb. 15th

Cosina Japan listed February 15th as the release date of the Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 FE. Unfortunately, B&H Photo pulled their listing. Pre-orders should start soon though so check back. As I have said before this lens had a beautiful rendering on M-mount cameras and I hope Voigtlander maintains the look.

Large-diameter & compact wide-angle lens that refined the flavor of classic lenses with the latest optical technology and revived to the present age. Unlike modern performance-based lens design, it embodies the beauty of lens character and depiction by intentionally leaving aberration.

Main features:
● With Sony E mount compatible electronic contact, lens usage status is reflected in Exif information of shooting data. In addition, because it incorporates a distance encoder, it supports 5-axis camera shake correction on the camera body side. You can also enlarge the display by operating the focus ring.

● Symmetrical Lens Construction Reconstructed with the latest optical technology while adopting a traditional symmetrical lens configuration to obtain a unique and beautiful depiction. By adopting ultrahigh refraction glass, we have realized a large aperture with compact size. Optimized optical design In addition to securing full-size image circle, it adopts optical design optimized for Sony E mount sensor. You can enjoy soft delicate descriptions reminiscent of classic lenses with stable image quality.

● Manual Focus capable of reliable focusing The total metal helicoid unit processed and adjusted with high precision and the high-quality grease that produces moderate torque realize smooth operation feeling. It enables delicate focus adjustment.
