Cosina has just announced a new SL II series of lenses in their Voigtlander brand! Previously I thought they are too busy with Zeiss lens making, hence discontinued all the SL series of Voigtlander lenses. I was wrong and I am glad that I am wrong! 😀
The first two lenses from Cosina Voigtlander SL II series are:
- Ultron 40mm F2 SL II Aspherical (available on 17th Nov 2007)
- Nokton 58mm F1.4 SL II (available in Dec 2007)
These are two very high demand lenses from Cosina. The 58mm was a remake of Topcor 58mm f1.4, Cosina has made this lens available few years ago in limited edition.
Now, what’s the extra great news?!
ALL SL II lenses now come with CPU that are able to communicate with the camera body! Yes, Nikon cameras will now able to talk to the lens! SL II lenses are available in Nikon AIS and Pentax KA mounts at the moment.
I hope and dream that the legendary Voigtlander 125SL F2.5 Macro lens will be made available once again soon!
