Voigtlander Compact 40mm f/2.8 Aspherical Heliar Pancake Lens for use with Sony E Mount with Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter

Please Note: This lens is specially designed to work with Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter (ordered separately) on Sony A7 Series cameras. This allows you to get the full rnage of focus using the helical mount. This is one of the sharpest lenses around and belies its diminutive size.

Leica M cameras are able to use this lens mounted directly onto M Mount but note the lens focal point is fixed at infinity. There is no way to focus on the M cameras.

The Voigtlander close focus adapter is not included with the lens and must be ordered separately or as a kit.

This lens & adapter combination is an outstanding performer on the Sony A7R, resolution and colour rendition are both excellent. Similar results can be expected from all the A7 models. The combination of compact size, sharpness and useful focal length make it an ideal travel lens as well as a prime candidate for stitched panoramic photography.
