Sharpness redefined

The complex optical design consists of 8 groups with 10 lens elements, including two double-sided aspherical elements, two with abnormal partial dispersion and floating elements. Compared to the E-mount version, however, the VM version is noticeably shorter and over 20 percent lighter. Furthermore, the 12 aperture blades form a circular opening not only at F2.0 and F2.8, but also at F5.6, which enables circular bokeh from a point light source. In terms of feel, the new lens impresses with the usual high-quality workmanship and a brilliant imaging performance that is exceptional in all facets.

Our Voigtländer 50 mm / 1:2.0 APO-Lanthar aspherical VM is optimized for M-mount cameras, but can also be used on Fuji X-mount cameras and Nikon Z-mount models. Our corresponding Nah+ system adapters are ideal for this purpose.

Nokton Classic 35 mm / 1:1.4

The Voigtländer 50 mm / 1:2.0 APO-Lanthar aspherical VM sets a new benchmark in our range of standard focal lengths and is aimed at those users who demand the very best image quality and the highest resolution for their photographic work. The unusual fascia design also offers a high degree of creative freedom and allows for a very individual look.

A lens hood designed exclusively for this lens is available as an option (LH-13).

The market launch is planned for the first quarter of 2021.
