Voigtlander APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2.0 Aspherical Lens

BH #VO3520AVM • MFR #BA365A
Voigtlander APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2.0 Aspherical Lens
Key Features
  • Leica M-Mount / Full Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.0 to f/16
  • Two Double-Sided Aspherical Elements
  • Apochromat Design
A sophisticated wide-angle M-mount prime, the APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2 Aspherical Lens from Voigtlander holds the elite distinction of being part of the APO-LANTHAR series of optically refined, apochromatic lenses. The apochromatic design makes the on-axis chromatic aberration of RGB light wavelengths constituting the three primary colors of light as close to zero as possible. A series of anomalous partial dispersion and aspherical elements help to suppress virtually all aberrations for especially high sharpness and color accuracy. A manual focus design is employed, along with a high precision helicoid, for refined focusing control. Additionally, a 12-blade diaphragm forms a circular opening when using the wider apertures, creating a pleasing circular bokeh from point light sources.

Voigtlander APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2.0 Aspherical Overview

A sophisticated wide-angle M-mount prime, the APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2 Aspherical Lens from Voigtlander holds the elite distinction of being part of the APO-LANTHAR series of optically refined, apochromatic lenses. The apochromatic design makes the on-axis chromatic aberration of RGB light wavelengths constituting the three primary colors of light as close to zero as possible. A series of anomalous partial dispersion and aspherical elements help to suppress virtually all aberrations for especially high sharpness and color accuracy. A manual focus design is employed, along with a high precision helicoid, for refined focusing control. Additionally, a 12-blade diaphragm forms a circular opening when using the wider apertures, creating a pleasing circular bokeh from point light sources.

Wide-angle prime designed for full-frame M-mount cameras, however, can provide a 52.5mm equivalent focal length if used with APS-C format cameras
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over focus position for selective focus applications
Apochromatic design virtually eliminates color fringing and chromatic aberrations for higher clarity and color fidelity
Two aspherical elements limit spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering
11 element, nine groups design
Manual focus design with a high-accuracy all-metal helicoid for high-precision control.
A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

Does this lens block the Leica M9-P viewfinder?

Does this lens block the Leica M9-P viewfinder?
Asked by: Richard
Dimensions are really close to a 50mm Summilux. So slightly more so than that lens. IMO for 35mm framelines it does cover a tiny bit of the corner. but not a lot.
