      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 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.
