APO-LANTHAR 50mm F2 Aspherical

Ultimate standard lens

Features

This product uses the same optical system as the popular Sony E-mount lens, which have been introduced as the highest-performance standard lens in Voigtländer’s history, and has an optical design optimized for the image sensors of mirrorless cameras with the Nikon Z-mount.
The apochromatic design of the lens minimizes axial chromatic aberration of the three primary colors of light, RGB, to zero, and the performance of the lens will revolutionize the value of standard lenses. The lens also offers high mobility and easy handling in a compact style.

Main Features

Designed exclusively for the Nikon Z mount

Optics optimized for the image sensors of mirrorless cameras with the Nikon Z-mount are implemented. The lens has a full-frame image circle and can be used with both full-frame (Nikon FX format) and APS-C size (Nikon DX format) mirrorless cameras.

Apochromatic design

This design thoroughly eliminates various aberrations including axial chromatic aberrations and pursues the ultimate performance in terms of resolution and contrast reproducibility.

Optical glass and mechanical components that deliver high performance

Of the 10 elements in 8 groups in the optical configuration of this lens, 5 elements are made using anomalous partial dispersion glass, 2 elements have aspherical surfaces on both sides, and the lens also employs a floating mechanism.

Information communication with the body by electronic contacts

This lens is equipped with electronic contacts and realizes communications between the lens and the body. In addition to Exif information and in-body image stabilization (3 axes), by combining with a body compatible with communications and the latest firmware*1, three types of focusing support functions ( [1] focusing by color changing of the focus point frame [2] peaking function focusing and [3] focusing with the enlargement button) are supported.

Beautiful bokeh by 12 aperture blades

A 12-blade aperture is used to make the holes formed by the blades closer to a circle. The out-of-focus part has a natural depiction, and the point light source is not a polygon but a round and soft bokeh.

Manual focus for reliable focus operation

adopting an full-metal helicoid unit processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces an appropriate torque, focusing with a smooth operation feeling is realized. It enables fine focus adjustment.
