First time in Stock: The new special design Voigtlander Heliar for the Sony A7!


The brand new New Voigtlander Aspherical 40mm f/2.8 40/2.8 Heliar is in Stock for the first time at CameraQuest one eBay (Click here). This is a very unique lens made specially for the Sony A7 series (obviously it works on APS-C E-mount camera too). And you need to buy the VM-E Close Focus Adapter Required (here one Bay) to make it work!

As Voigtlander writes: “The Heliar 40mm F2.8 is manufactured only for the purpose of using this lens onto E-mount camera body via VM-E Close Focus Adapter. You can not do focusing when you mount this lens via adapters not designed with built-in focusing-function or M-mount camera body directly.

So why is this lens interesting on the A7? Because it is very compact thanks to the collapsible desing.Because it’s well-built and has a nice handling and should give you an “analogic” (old-look) image rendering. I like it :)

UPDATE: It’s also in Stock at Fotomundus (via DL).
