Voigtlander Announces New 21mm f1.8 Leica M Mount Lens

Voigtlander has announced their new 21mm f1.8 lens for M mount cameras. The company has always been known for creating beautiful glass but hasn’t been as prominent as Zeiss and Leica. Voigtlander is in fact a more affordable option, and this new lens isn’t the new exception.

The new lens features 13 elements in 11 groups with one Aspherical element. Plus it features 10 aperture blades and an all metal design: just like all their other lenses. The 21mm f1.8 also features a non-removable lens hood. Here are some more specs (after the jump) straight from the horses mouth.
