This is the third incarnation of the 15mm 4.5 Super Wide Heliar lens. Better performance, less colour shift and of course, rangefinder coupled.

This new lens makes the extremely wide 15mm focal length available to Sony E-Mount photographers the without breaking the bank. The incredible 110° diagonal angle of view on good old 35mm film makes most wide angle lenses on digital cameras look a bit lacklustre.

This lens offers a f/4.5 maximum aperture, but unlike many lenses it performs nearly as brilliantly at f/4.5 as it will at friendlier apertures of f/5.6-11.0. An optional dedicated viewfinder's available. This lens triggers the 28/90mm framelines on Leica M bodies.

    Having finally made the switch to a Sony A7RII this year I needed an ultra wide angle that would truly complement its 42Mp sensor for landscape and sports photography. I initially bought a Zeiss 15mm f2.8 Distagon ZF which I mounted via a Novoflex adapter but that showed some significant decentering which was not due to the adapter. It is a hefty chunk of glass and probably had a serious incident in shipping so that was returned but before I ordered its replacement Voigtlander announced their 15mm in E mount so I decided to wait. Boy was that a good decision! This lens is simply outstanding optically and it represents unbelievable value for money. Its sharpness is excellent at full aperture but simply outstanding at f5.6 and f8. It has neligible distortion and CA, to the extent that I initially re-checked my RAW settings to see if I had turned on a correction profile. Of course there is some vignetting at full aperture but that quickly becomes insignificant by f5.6. The construction has a nice solid feel and the focusing ring is Zeiss like in its smoothness. Its f4.5 aperture would rule it out for astrophotography but Its small size makes it a perfect match for the Sony A7RII and perfectly complements the Zeiss Loxia 21/35/50 lenses for landscape photography.

    My first use of this lens was actually action photography for an article on the UCI Downhill World Cup 2016 in Fort William. Here are a few sample images from that article taken with this stunning lens :

    These images were all shot on a Sony A7RII with the Voigtlander 15mm and lit with the superb Godox AD600BM flash unit in HSS mode.
