Committed to highest quality—Lenses, that support latest camera technologies with high precision mechanics: the brand new Voigtländer lenses.

Sony E-Mount

In Spring 2016 Voigtländer will release a brand new, much-anticipated line of Sony-E-Mount lenses, that can be used on Sony E-Mount cameras without an adapter.
According to the tradition of Voigtländer the first three lenses of this new lines are covering an extreme wide angle range and are perfect for landscape and architecture photographers:

  • 10 mm F5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar
  • 12 mm F5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar
  • 15 mm F4,5 Super-Wide-Heliar

While the 12 mm and 15 mm lenses are already available with a VM-Mount the 10 mm focal length is completely new. As these extreme wide lenses are challenging a fast and smooth communication between lens, camera and photographer, which is extremely important.

If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows highest accuracy. All lens-relevant data such as focal length, aperture and focal distance are transmitted to the camera. This data is shown in the view finder/display and used for metering and image stabilization.

The selective aperture control system for full frame is used for the first time in this lenses—a vital feature for film makers as it allows a step less and soundless aperture control.

VM-Mount

Voigtländer continues its VM-Mount digital optimization with the new 12 mm F 5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar III. Additionally Voigtländer will also release the new 10 mm F 5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar with VM-Mount.

Release date:
All new lenses will be available in Spring 2016. For further information please visit our website again at a later date.
