The 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens from Voigtlander is a manual focus wide-angle prime lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 making it ideal for shallow depth of field photography and effective with fast shutter speeds in low light. Its optical design consists of 13 elements in 11 groups including an aspherical lens element to correct aberrations. Ten aperture blades help to create beautiful bokeh when shooting with a shallow focus and its smooth manual focus action offers precise focusing. An all-metal barrel provides longevity and a built-in lens hood deflects stray light from entering the lens and offers a degree of protection for the lens as well. A VM mount lens, it has a native compatibility with M-mount cameras but can work on most any camera with the proper adapter.

A wide maximum aperture of f/1.8 enables this lens to be effective in low-light situations and provide shallow depth of field focus.

      Comments about Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens:

      paired with Sony A7R. it's built like a tank, very crisp in centre but loses a fair bit of sharpness near the edges when wide open.

      Comments about Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 Ultron M-Mount Lens:

      I bought this for the Sony a7r, which is particularly tough with wide angle lenses. Great build, good focus ring and aperture ring feel. It is exceptional in the center even wide open, but it gets dramatically worse out towards the corners. Those corners don't clean up until f/8.

      It probably does much better on film or on the Leica M. It is still one of the better wide options for the a7r. The Leica WATE is much better but at 4x the price.

        Using this on a NEX with Leica M adapter. Good glass makes or breaks a shot no matter the camera body. This lens does not disappoint. Very solid build, smooth focus, solid aperture clicks. Excellent in bright or low light. The RAW file output with this setup is usable for print with no post adjustments!
