@ The VM mount interchangeable lenses of the VoigtlaNnder gVintage Lineh series for rangefinder cameras combine
an exterior design reminiscent of the glamorous styling of classical lenses now regarded as historical
masterpieces together with optical performance that matches contemporary photographic equipment.
In the Vintage Line series, there are currently five types of lenses from a 21mm super wide lens to a 50mm
standard lens, and all lenses have been well received by users. This new lens is a large maximum aperture short
telephoto lens addition to the Vintage Line series.
The NOKTON Vintage Line 75mm F1.5 Aspherical VM is a compact large maximum aperture short telephoto lens
with an optical configuration featuring 7 elements in 6 groups. The lens has a large maximum aperture of F1.5,
yet realizes both compactness and high performance. The optical formula utilizes an element with aspherical
surfaces to ensure excellent optical performance from maximum aperture. The lens is 63.3mm long (measured
from the lens mount) for minimal intrusion into the image frame when used on a rangefinder camera and the lens
has a beautiful barrel design with good handling.
The aperture mechanism features 12 aperture blades for a very close to circular aperture opening, and the
synergetic effect of the F1.5 large maximum aperture combined with the short telephoto focal length makes the
lens ideal for imaging expression utilizing very blurred backgrounds. The lens is designed for use on
rangefinder-coupled digital and film cameras, but can also be used for imaging on a range of platforms by using
This lens will be offered in black and silver, and both versions will be manufactured as part of the normal lineup
rather than as limited editions. Each version of the lens comes with a designated reversible slit lens hood in the matching color.
