Key Features
  • Leica M-Mount Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Manual Focus
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 3'
The 90mm f/2.8 Apo-Skopar from Voigtlander is a manual focus medium telephoto lens optimized for full-frame M-mount image sensors. The newly designed optical system uses Abnormal Partial Dispersion glass for five out of seven elements in seven groups to make images rich, three dimensional in character, and extremely sharp. It has an apochromatic design that makes axial chromatic aberration as close to zero as possible. The manual focus lens is designed for use with rangefinder-linked digital and film cameras and has a precision helicoid for smooth precise focusing action. The shortest shooting distance linked to the rangefinder is 3' (depending on the camera used).

Voigtlander 90mm f/2.8 Apo-Skopar Overview

The 90mm f/2.8 Apo-Skopar from Voigtlander is a manual focus medium telephoto lens optimized for full-frame M-mount image sensors. The newly designed optical system uses Abnormal Partial Dispersion glass for five out of seven elements in seven groups to make images rich, three dimensional in character, and extremely sharp. It has an apochromatic design that makes axial chromatic aberration as close to zero as possible. The manual focus lens is designed for use with rangefinder-linked digital and film cameras and has a precision helicoid for smooth precise focusing action. The shortest shooting distance linked to the rangefinder is 3' (depending on the camera used).

The 10 diaphragm blades help provide a creamy bokeh suitable for portraiture. In addition, the aperture adopts a special circular shape not only at the fully-open f/2.8, but also at f/4 and f/22. This circular shape can create the cinematic flares known as "ball blur" by pointing toward a point light source.

This compact and lightweight lens does not protrude into the viewfinder frame when used on a rangefinder camera.

  • Apochromatic design that eliminates chromatic aberration
  • Optical design optimized for digital image sensors
  • Highly rigid and durable full-metal lens barrel
  • Manual focus for reliable focus operation
  • 10 apertures that become circular at open, f/4, and f/22
  • Bayonet type VM mount
  • High-precision rangefinder interlocking mechanism
  • Full-size image circle
  • Included lens hood can be reverse mounted for easy storage.

I just received this lens but noticed that Lightroom is not applying a profile to it. I'm shooting it with an Leica M10-R. Any suggestions on how I can go about doing this?
Asked by: Jay
Here in Adobe website it does not list that lens as supported unfortunately. Another option would be a third party company that would make a lens profile as a plug in that you could add in Lightroom but doing a google search I don't see any. Another option would be to fix any distortions manually in the software. https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/supported-lenses.html

I shoot Leica M and Nikon Z. Would you recommend buying the VM version and adapt it to my Z7 or the F mount version and adapt it to my M10?
Asked by: Anthony
Depends which way your fingers and brain go. The Leica version focuses in the Leica direction (clockwise for closer) and the Nikon version focuses in the Nikon direction. (Which is the opposite way.) Do you want the lens to feel right for the given camera on the Leica or the Nikon?
