Like other Voigtlander fullframe E-mount lenses, the Macro APO-Lanthar 65mm f/2 Aspherical is a manual focus lens that transmits EXIF lens data to the camera allowing Auto IBIS image stabilization with Sony a9, a7 Series Mark II cameras and Sony a6500.
With an apochromatic design, the it delivers crisp, aberration-free imagery, outstanding sharpness, and resolves the finest details, even with the high resolutions of modern digital sensors. This lens is designed to work with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras where it offers users the ability to get close to their subjects thanks to the 1:2 magnification ratio afforded by the 12.2″ minimum focus distance.
The lens features a relatively fast f/2 aperture, which will enable the creation of images with a shallow depth of field and is ideal for shooting in low-light.
The all-metal construction is designed to last and offers full manual operation for tactile control during shooting. This includes a manual focus ring and a manual aperture ring with 1/3 click stops. A 10-blade diaphragm is also present for smooth bokeh while electronic contacts will automatically transmit data to the camera for use of advanced functions, including in-body image stabilization. Additionally, it comes with a lens hood to block stray light from entering the lens.
