Voigtlander 35mm F2 lenses announced


Voigtlander has announced new 35mm F2 lenses that are all available in Sony E-mount and Leica M mount. The two new lenses are the Voigtlander Apo-Lanthar 35mm F2 Aspherical VM and Voigtlander Ultron Vintage Line 35mm F2 Aspherical Type II VM.

A lot of these Voigtlander lenses are actually great for video use. It is relatively easy to get a Leica M adapter for most manufacturers’ mounts.
