Here is the official press text:

Committed to highest quality—Lenses, that support latest camera technologies with high precision mechanics: the brand new Voigtländer lenses.

Sony E-Mount
In Spring 2016 Voigtländer will release a brand new, much-anticipated line of Sony-E-Mount 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:

• 10 mm F 5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar
• 12 mm F 5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar
• 15 mm F 4,5 Super-Wide-Heliar

While the 12 mm and 15 mm lenses are already available with a VM-Mount the 10 mm focal length is completely new. As these extreme wide lenses are challenging a fast and smooth communication between lens, camera and photographer, which is extremely important.
If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows highest accuracy. 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 step less and soundless aperture control.

Voigtländer continues its VM-Mount digital optimization with the new 12 mm F 5,6 Ultra-Wide-Heliar III. Additionally Voigtländer will also release the new 10 mm F 5,6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar with VM-Mount.

Release date:
All new lenses will be available in Spring 2016. For further information please visit our website again at a later date.

(SR5) Hot! Voigtlander will announce new FE lenses at 14:00 London time!


Image on top shows a current M-mount Skopar lens. Something similar in size could be announced today.

UPDATE: It’s now official! Read about the new lenses here on SAR.

Today Voigtlander will announce a brand new line of native Full Frame E-mount lenses! Announcement is expected to happen at 14:00 London time (9am in New York). What I know so far is:

  1. They will launch three Full Frame E-mount lenses
  2. Those are manual focusing lenses
  3. Those lenses are “compact” in terms of size compared to current FE lenses. Don’t know if they are as compact as the current Skopar lens line (here on eBay). I certainly would like it if it would be so!

This is really exciting! At last some cheaper good quality FE lenses are coming! Stay tuned on SAR! I will live blog all the info about the announcement!

Reminder: On Monday Zeiss will announce the FE Loxia 21mm f/2.8 lens. And in two weeks Sony will unveil their new FE lenses and update FE lens roadmap!
