Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 VM

 

Voigtlander has introduced two new lenses: the Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 VM and the Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 SLIIs.

The Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 VM features a newly designed optical system that uses Abnormal Partial Dispersion glass for 5 out of 7 elements in 7 groups while the apochromatic design makes axial chromatic aberration as close to zero as possible.

The 10 diaphragm aperture blades adopt a special shape so not only do they make a circle when fully open at f/2.8, they also create this shape at f/4 and f/22. 

Pricing & Availability: Available in silver and black finishes, the Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 VM is available for pre-order now, along with a special metal lens hood that can be reverse mounted for convenience and storage, from Robert White. The new lens is priced at £719. 

 

Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 SLIIs

 

The Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 SLIIs lens is a fixed focal length lens that is compact and lightweight, weighing just 260g. 

The newly created optical formula uses anomalous partially dispersed glass for 5 out of 7 elements in 7 groups and as with the Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 VM, the apochromatic design makes axial chromatic aberration as close to zero as possible.

The focus and aperture rings are made entirely of metal and feature heavy finger indents with precise machine knurling and in homage to the look of single-lens reflex cameras in the 1965s and 1970s, the lens is offered with both silver and black front rim.

The SL II mount is compatible with Nikon Ai-S with a built-in CPU. Equipped with an Ai coupler, it can be used with a variety of bodies, from old-fashioned film SLR cameras to the latest digital SLR cameras.             

Pricing & Availability: You can pre-order the Voigtlander APO-SKOPAR 90mm F2.8 SLIIs lens for £529 from Robert White
