Key Features
  • Leica M-Mount Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/16
  • Manual Focus Design
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 3'
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.

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.

question

What is t5he difference between an M mount and VM mount?
Asked by: John H.
'VM' DIFFERS FROM 'M' mount in that the 'VM' would be needed for focusing for some lenses on non 'M' mount cameras ie Sony etc. For example the voigtlander 40mm VM f2.8 Heliar needs the 'VM' to focus properly on non native camera bodies.

question

Can I use this lens for video in my GH5?
Asked by: Nicolas B.
You should be able to use it on your gh5 but since the gh5 is a m4/3 camera this lens would act like a 100mm lens because m4/3 has a 2.0x crop factor. you would just need to buy a leica m mount to m4/3 adapter.

question

Can i use this lens with my Nikon D750?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens will not focus to infinity, even if you find a F to M converter . (I've never seen one, BTW) The lens on a Leica-M mount camera is much closer to the film plane, due to the lack of a mirror box (these are made as rangefinder lenses, after all) in the Leicas.
