    Schacht Travegon 50mm f/2.5 Announcement

      News

    Schacht is yet another German company which is going to try to get back to business by producing exotic lenses – this time, for the users of mirrorless cameras.

    Schacht Travegon 50mm f/2.5 is supposed to be the first full-frame lens of the company. It is to be distinguished by optical excellence – 6 lenses, made of low-dispersion glass and covered with special coatings, placed in 4 groups, are going to be helpful in that. The use of such solutions is supposed to ensure a uniquely sharp image already at full 12-blade aperture opening. The minimum focus distance is 65cm.

    The lens is, of course, manual and the lack of contacts completely deprives us of the camera-lens communication.

    Schacht Travegon 50mm f/2.5 is a fully metal construction which weighs merely 270g. The filters with the diameter of 49mm can be mounted on the lens.

    2). Schacht Travegon 50mm f/2.5

     

    Schacht Travegon 50mm f/2.5 will be available in the versions with Sony E, Fujifilm X and Leica M mounts. Unfortunately, as for now the lens is at the stage of gaining funds via the Kickstarter campaign but it seems that the whole assumed sum is going to be gathered.

    In order to become the owner of the lens, one has to pay $599 at the project’s website, and, if everything goes well, the lens is going to come into one’s possession in September 2018. You can find the project’s website here.

      Today, Voigtländer presented its latest manual fixed lenses dedicated for full-frame mirrorless Sony cameras Voigtländer Macro APO Lanthar 110mm f/2.5 and Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5  The first one should especially interest macrography lovers, and the second one - documentalists and street fans. 

      Voigtländer Macro APO Lanthar 110mm f/2.5 consists of 14 elements placed in 12 groups. As the producer assures, the designed optical system has been constructed having in mind the latest Sony sensors with high resolution. Apart from that, the lens is to ensure proper resolution, contrast and colours as well as effectively minimize defects, such as chromatic aberration.

      The lens is equipped with a 10-blade aperture with the light of f/2.5. Thanks to this, we will be able to get extremely malleable photographs from the minimum distance of 35cm. The filters with the diameter of 58cm can be screwed onto the lens.

      The second of the fixed lenses presented today is a compact structure with the dimensions of 62.8×39.9mm. Similarly to the above macro lens, this model is also made of metal.

      The optical system of Color-Skopar 21mm f/3.5 Aspherical consists of 9 lenses placed in 8 groups.A 10-blade aperture with the maximum light of  f/3.5 is responsible for image plasticity. Minimum focus distance is 20cm, and the diameter of the filter screwed onto the front element is 52mm.
