Press release
Commited to highest quality —  lenses, that support latest camera technologies with high precision mechanics: the brand new Voigtländer lenses.

Sony E-mount
In Spring 2016 Voigtländer will release a brand new, much-anticipated line of Sony E-mount lenses, that can be used on Sony E-mount cameras without an adapter.

According to the tradition of Voigtländer the first three lenses of this new lines are covering an extreme wideangle range and are perfect for landscape and architecture photographers:

• 10 mm f/5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar
• 12 mm f/5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar
• 15 mm f/4,5 Super-Wide-Heliar

While the 12mm and 15mm lenses are already avaibale with a VM-mount the 10mm focal length is completely new. As these extreme wide lenses are challenging a fast and smooth commuication between lens, camera and photographer, which is extremely important.

If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows highest accurancy. All lens-relevant data such as focal length, aperture and focal distance are transmitted to the camera. This data is  shown in the view finder/display and used for metering and image stabilisation.

The selective aperture control system for full frame is used for the first time in this lenses — a vital feature for filmmakers as it allows a stepless and soundless aperture control.

VM-mount
Voigtländer continues its VM-mount digital optimisation with the new 12 mm f/5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar III. Additionally Voigtländer will also release the new 10 mm f/5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar with VM-mount.

Release date:
All new lenses will be available in Spring 2016. For further information please visit our website again at a later date.
