Cosina has introduced three models of the Voigtlander 28mm F2.8 Leica COLOR-SKOPAR Aspherical lens, showcasing a retro style infused with the latest specifications. These lenses are compatible with Leica M (Type I and Type II) as well as screw mounts (L type).
This wide-angle lens offers the convenience of a rangefinder camera while retaining the optical prowess found in the ULTRON Vintage Line 28mm F2 Aspherical lens. The latter incorporates cutting-edge optical design and an aspherical lens. Comprising 8 elements in 5 groups and 10 aperture blades, this lens package comes complete with a specialized lens hood and lens hood cap.
Functioning as a full-frame manual focus lens, it draws design inspiration from a similar model produced between 1965 and 1974. Achieving a minimum focusing distance of 0.7m and featuring a filter diameter of 34mm, the lens boasts external dimensions of approximately Ø52×23.5 mm, with a weight range of 106 to 143 g depending on the model.
