A fast prime for M-mount rangefinder cameras, the Heliar 75mm f/1.8 from Voigtlander blends a bright maximum aperture with a short telephoto focal length to realize an ideal lens for portraiture. The slight visual compression of the focal length is complemented by the depth of field control afforded by the f/1.8 maximum aperture, and the lens's manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3' away. Also, a 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality for more aesthetic out-of-focus backgrounds.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in low-light conditions, and also benefits using selective focus techniques.
A 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field imagery.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3' away.
Reversible lens hood is included to help reduce lens flare and ghosting.
