Cosina of Japan introduces the Ultron 40mm F2 SLII Aspherical lens and the Nokton 58mm F1.4 SLII, both carrying the VoigtlÃ¤nder brand. The new lenses will be available for the Nikon and Pentax DSLR mounts.
The Ultron is a pancake design comprising six elements in five groups including a double-aspheric element and high-refraction glass.
The Nokton is based on a Topcor design with seven elements in six groups. It replicates the angle of view of an 85mm when mounted on an APS-C camera making it a good choice for portrait photography.
The new VoigtlÃ¤nder lenses are expected to sell for $400 to $500 when they are released towards December.
