The new Voigtlander APO-LANTHAR 50mm f/2 Aspheric Lens for full-frame Sony E mount cameras is finally available for pre-order.
The specs of the new 50 mm lens, of course, do not shout buy me, but early reviews of those who already had the opportunity to test the new 50mm lens in Japan showed that this Sony E 50mm lens was a super sharp product. Some even said that the Voigtlander 50mm f2.0 APO Lanthar is the sharpest lens in the FE lineup.
New Voigtlander Aspherical lens has a series of anomalous partial dispersion and aspherical elements help to suppress virtually all aberrations for especially high sharpness and color accuracy, and a floating elements system maintains consistent performance throughout the focusing range.[Also see Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art Lens for Sony E mount]
This new 50 mm lens has a manual focus design, along with a high precision helicoid, for refined focusing control and a Selective Aperture Control System allows you to de-click the manual aperture ring for smooth, silent exposure adjustment to suit filmmaking applications.
