The new lens was created for street photography, according to 7artisans. The manufacturer points out that you won’t miss a decisive moment with this lens because it has a hyperfocal focus.

The lens is connected to the rangefinder and has a unique locking system for fixing the focus at infinity. The lens features both a click aperture ring and a knurled focus ring.

The 7artisans 28mm F5.6 lens has an aperture range from F/5.6 to F/22, a 35.5mm filter thread, and an eight-bladed petal-shaped aperture (when the aperture is closed), and a minimum focusing distance of 1m.

The lens is made of metal, 38mm in diameter, 44mm long, and weighs 130 grams.

Price and availability

7artisans 28mm F5.6 lens for Leica M costs $299 / £288, and it can be purchased through Amazon.com, Bhphotovideo.com, and Amazon.co.uk online stores.

Earlier this year, Voigtlander introduced a 40mm f2.8 Heliar aspherical VM/L lens. It is a compact and all-purpose 35mm/full-frame lens with a lens configuration of five elements in three groups, based on Voigtländer’s traditional Heliar design.

The Voigtlander 40mm f2.8 Heliar (approx. $550 on Bhphotovideo) lens is available with two mounts: VM lens is a bayonet mount, and a rangefinder camera equipped with a function that automatically identifies the attached lens by mechanical interlocking displays the shooting range of the 50mm lens. The L mount lens uses a φ39mm screw mount, so you can attach it to a rangefinder camera of the same standard.
