The Voigtländer 15mm F4.5 Super Wide Heliar aspherical Z-Mount is a high-performance super wide-angle lens with manual focus, which has been optimized for the full-frame image sensors of Nikon Z-Mount mirrorless cameras (Nikon FX format). The lens is based on the already well-known 15mm F4.5 lens with VM or Sony mount.

The Super Wide Heliar has extremely low distortion and enables sharp images right to the edge despite its super-wide viewing angle of 110° (diagonal). 11 lens elements in 9 groups form the optical unit, framed in a metal tube with easy-grip controls. The optical design has been optimized to correct the angle of the incident light rays. This prevents color casts on the periphery of the image, which can be caused by the structure of digital image sensors.

50 mm/1:1.2 Nokton E

The close-up limit is 12.6 cm at a working distance of approx. 4 cm (measured from the tip of the lens hood) and therefore offers interesting perspectives. The lens hood can also be removed using a small flat screwdriver (not supplied), e.g. to work with rectangular filters.

The 15mm F4.5 Super Wide is equipped with electronic contacts and enables communication between the lens and the housing. Please note the information at the end (*)
