Voigtlander Launches Pre-Orders for New Vintage Line M Mount Camera Lenses


Voigtlander has revealed pricing for its latest Vintage Line retro-style lenses.

The new Color-Skopar 21mm F3.5 Aspherical Ultra Wide-Angle Lens and Ultron 35mm F2 Aspherical Wide-Angle Lens are both now available for pre-order for $799 via B&H Photo-Video.

As previously reported, the Vintage Line lenses combine contemporary optics with a classical exterior design aesthetic marked by a retro look inspired by the 1950s and an all metal construction. In addition, the lenses use practical aperture values in order to maintain compactness and high performance. Both lenses are designed to work with M mount cameras like the Voigtlander Bessa series (excluding Bessa L, R) and Leica M rangefinders.
