Voigtlaender Launches Two New Lenses for Nikon, Pentax Mounts

Voigtländer Ultron & Nokton Lenses

Germany’s Voigtlaender has introduced to the market its two new fixed focus lenses for Nikon and Pentax mounts.

The Ultron 2.0 / 40 SL II and the Nokton 1.4 / 58mm SL II both feature a novel diaphragm technology that offers an almost circular opening rather than the traditional polygon openings. The result obtained is a smoother path that contributes to the optimization of the image quality.

The Ultron 2.0 / 40 SL II has a flat ‘pancake’ design with a length of 24.5 mm weighs 200g. It includes a close-up lens which adjusts the macro-adjustment range from 1:7 to 1:4.

The Nokton 1.4 / 58mm SL II lens has a focal length of 58mm and offers a higher brightness to suite APS-C format cameras as a portrait lens.

The Nokton and Ultron lenses for the Nikon mount are equipped with a processor which interfaces with the camera’s electronics.

Both lenses are priced at €399 or about $590.
