Voigtlander COLOR-SKOPAR Vintage Line 21mm F3.5 Aspherical VM Type II (Black) M Mount

A classic style lens with the latest in optical design for M Mount cameras. The Voigtländer "Vintage Line" series combines an exterior reminiscent of the retro- styling of a classic lens. It possesses an optical performance lens that matches the latest in modern photography optics too.

The COLOR-SKOPAR Vintage Line 21mm F3.5 Aspherical VM Type II is an ultra-wide-angle lens with 9 elements in 8 groups. By intentionally suppressing the maximum aperture value, it achieves both compactness and high performance.

By adopting an aspherical lens, a compact length of only 30mm is realized while ensuring optical performance even wide open! It is a lens that combines the mobility of a rangefinder as a street shooter with the joy of owning it due to its beautiful appearance.

The shortest focal distance is 0.5m. It is designed for use with rangefinder-linked digital and film cameras, but it goes beyond the usual boundaries by its optical design. This design also enables shooting with a mirrorless digital camera using an adapter.

The previously released 21mm f3.5 Vintage Line Type I adopted a design focused on the 1950s, but the new COLOR-SKOPAR Vintage Line 21mm F3.5 Aspherical VM Type II mimics the look of 1970s masterpieces. This new offering boasts the same advanced optical system as the Type I lens while bringing back the charm of this desirable look and feel.

Equipped with a moon-shaped focusing lever, it facilitates quick and comfortable focusing, by giving your finger an easily indentation to engage. The exterior is made of machined brass with a profound feeling. It is available in two finishes: silver chrome and black paint finish.

The optional lens hood LH-11 is crinkle-paint finish on aluminum material and is a bayonet type that can be quickly attached and detached.
