Voigtlander has detailed two additions to its Vintage Line of 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 designed to work with M mount cameras like the Voigtlander Bessa series (excluding Bessa L, R) and Leica M rangefinders.

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.
