Voigtländer NOKTON 15mm F4.5 Aspherical III

Super wide-angle designed for digital

Features

Lens with a super wide 110° angle of view and almost no distortion that captures images sharp right to the image periphery. Employs an optical design that optimizes the angle of incident light reaching the sensor to prevent color shifts around the periphery of images captured with digital cameras.

Main Features

Super wide lens with 110° angle of view

Whether for capturing magnificent landscapes or locations where you are unable to step backwards, this lens draws stunning images with a sense of width.

Optical design optimized for digital

Employs an optical design that optimizes the angle of incident light reaching the imaging sensor to eliminate color shifts around the image periphery caused by the characteristic structure of digital camera image sensors. Features excellent contrast and resolution right into the corners even from maximum aperture, as well as expressing the same softness, depth and beauty as the Heliar of yesteryear.

Pan focusing

The extremely deep depth of focus means there is almost no need to focus. When the lens focusing position is set to 2m and the aperture is set to f4.5 everything from 0.9m to infinity is in focus, and when the lens focusing position is set to 1m and the aperture is set to f8 everything from 0.5m to infinity is in focus.

Minimum focus distance of 0.5 meters

When attached to a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera using our mount adapter, the lens focuses beyond the minimum rangefinder-coupled focus distance of 0.7m all the way down to 0.5m. You can enjoy the high performance of this lens on various platforms beyond the scope of rangefinder-coupled cameras.

Takes filters

58mm filters can be used without the need for a special adapter. Images can be captured using various filters.

Manual focus for reliable focusing

Employs a very precisely machined and adjusted all metal helicoid unit lubricated with high quality grease to realize smooth focusing operation with just the right amount of torque. This enables very precise focusing.

Bayonet type VM mount

Uses the VM-mount lens mount compatible with Leica M-mount. Not only can this lens be used on rangefinder-coupled cameras, but design-wise it also balances very nicely when mounted on mirrorless digital cameras with a mount adapter.

Installed with a focus-coupling system

The high-precision rangefinder coupling mechanism enables precise focusing even with the lens’s deep depth of focus.

Imaging circle that covers full frame format

The lens features a generous imaging circle that covers the 35 mm full frame format. Furthermore, its size is extremely compact compared to interchangeable lenses for single-lens reflex cameras.
