Cosina Voigtlander Nikon Z-mount lens duo set for release

May 24, 2022

Cosina Japan has announced the Nikon Z-mount Nokton D23mm f1.2 Asph. lens is due out on 26 May 2022, with the Z-mount version of its APO-LANTHAR 35mm F2 Aspherical lens set to be available from June 2022.    

The news comes three months after Cosina first revealed details of four Voigtlander Z-mount and X-mount prime lenses.

These were two APS-C lenses – the NOKTON D23mm F1.2 (in both Z-mount and X-mount) and a D35mm F1.2 optic – and two full-frame Z-mount lenses, the APO-LANTHAR 35mm F2 Aspherical and 50mm F2 Aspherical.

Cosina says it is manufacturing manual focus (MF) lenses for Z-mount that are ‘developed and manufactured under a licence agreement with Nikon.’

This means the manual focus lenses include electronic communication support, letting the camera know the focal length to automatically work with in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), as well as supporting focus confirmation, and EXIF information.

The Voigtlander NOKTON D23mm F1.2 Aspherical lens is based on the X-mount version of the lens (NOKTON 23mm F1.2), and optimised for Nikon Z-mount cameras, with the same external styling and dimensions as the Voigtlander NOKTON D35mm F1.2 Aspherical lens.

It should be noted that some Nikon Z-series cameras will need a firmware update to work correctly with these lenses.
