manufacturer description

Commited to highest quality—Lenses, that support latest camera technologies with high precision mechanics: the brand new Voigtländer lenses that can be used on Sony E-Mount cameras without an adapter.

According to the tradition of Voigtländer the first three lenses of this new lines are covering an extreme wide angle range and are perfect for landscape and architecture photographers:

While the 12 mm and 15 mm lenses are already avaibale with a VM-Mount the 10 mm focal length is completely new. As these extreme wide lenses are challenging a fast and smooth commuication between lens, camera and photographer, which is extremely important. If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows hightest accurancy. All lens-relevant data such as focal length, aperture and focal distance are transmitted to the camera. This data is shown in the view finder/display and used for metering and image stabilization.

The selective aperture control system for full frame is used for the first time in this lenses—a vital feature for film makers as it allows a stepless and soundless aperture control.
