Voigtlander 35mm f/2 ASPH Coming April 9th

As a quasi-wide-angle lens with the highest performance in Voigtlander history, it is an extremely high-performance lens optimized for a full-size M mount sensor. The apochromat design, which makes the on-axis chromatic aberration of RGB, which constitutes the three primary colors of light, as close to zero as possible, thoroughly eliminates various aberrations and pursues the ultimate performance in terms of resolution and contrast reproducibility.

Main features:
● Apochromat design While thoroughly eliminating various aberrations such as axial chromatic aberration, we are pursuing the ultimate performance in terms of resolution and contrast reproducibility.
● Of the optical glass that derives high performance and the lens configuration of 11 elements in 9 groups of the mechanical part , 5 abnormally dispersed glass and 2 double-sided aspherical lenses are used, and a floating mechanism is also equipped.
● 12 diaphragms that allow you to enjoy the expression of bokeh The diaphragm blades, which consist of 12 diaphragms, adopt a special shape that makes a circle not only in F2 but also in F2.8, F5.6, and F16. Drawing that makes use of “ball blur” such as point light sources is possible.
● The shortest shooting distance is 0.5m. Interlocking with a rangefinder It is possible to focus up to 0.5m beyond the shortest shooting distance of 0.7m. You can use the live view function of the rangefinder-linked digital camera to get closer to the subject.
● Optional bayonet hood offers a beautiful metal bayonet hood LH-13 which is rich in durable option.
● Manual focus for reliable focus operation By adopting an all-metal helicoid unit processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces an appropriate torque, focusing with a smooth operation feeling is realized. Allows for delicate focus adjustment.
● bayonet VM mount the lens mount has adopted a VM mount Leica M mount compatible.
● rangefinder system installed by the high accuracy of the range finder interlocking mechanism, can be severe focus in the open aperture around.
● Full-size image circle We have secured a generous image circle that supports full-frame 35mm format
* This lens can be attached to Sony E-mount, Fujifilm X-mount, and Nikon Z-mount digital cameras via our mount adapter, but since it is optimized for M-mount camera sensors, these lenses are available. Please note that the camera cannot demonstrate its original optical performance.

* APO-LANTHAR is a title given to high-performance products among Voigtlander lenses. APO-LANTHAR, a legendary lens that has fascinated photographers with its outstanding imaging performance and beautiful depiction designed by Apochromat, was born in 1951. Its origin dates back about 120 years.
