A unique limited edition lens, this Heliar 50mm f/2 from Voigtlander has been produced to commemorate the Cosina-Voigtlander collaboration, and takes on a vintage feel, complete with a nickel-plated exterior, to recall some of Voigtlander's early lens designs. It is an M39 screw-mount lens for direct use with many early rangefinder bodies, however it is delivered here with a lens adapter to Leica M-mount for extended compatibility.

In regard to its optical attributes, this lens utilizes high refractive index glass to control field curvature, monochromatic aberrations, and various distortions for improved clarity and overall sharpness. Its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3.3' away, and a ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field imagery.

Produced in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Cosina-Voigtlander collaboration, as well as the 50th anniversary of Cosina, this vintage-styled lens features a distinct nickel plating, is presented in a commemorative double box presentation set, and is part of a limited edition of just 600 lenses, each with unique serial numbers.
M39 screw-mount lens is directly compatible with a variety of rangefinder cameras, and an M39 to Leica M-mount lens adapter is included to extend its compatibility to more contemporary rangefinders.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture suits working in low-light conditions and also offers enhanced control over depth of field.
High refractive index glass is used to reduce field curvature, spherical aberrations, and distortion for improved sharpness and clarity.
Manual focus design enables a minimum focusing distance of 3.3'.
Ten-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
Dedicated lens hood is included to shield the front element in order to reduce lens flare and ghosting.
