Voigtländer has announced their first three native Sony E-mount lenses: 10mm, 12mm and 15mm wide-angle E-mount lenses will be released in Spring 2016
While the 12mm and 15mm lenses are already available with a VM-Mount the 10mm focal length is completely new. As these extreme wide lenses are challenging a fast and smooth communication between lens, camera and photographer, which is extremely important.
If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows highest accuracy. All lens-relevant data such as focal length, aperture and focal distance are transmitted to the camera. This data is shown in the view finder/display and used for metering and image stabilization.
The selective aperture control system for full frame is used for the first time in this lenses—a vital feature for film makers as it allows a stepless and silent aperture control.
All new lenses will be available in Spring 2016.
