Voightlander's Newest Lenses for Nikon
The popular third-party manufacturer Cosina has created two new manual focus 35mm format lenses for Nikon AIS and Pentax KA mounts.
The Ultron 40mm f2 SLII is a pancake lens much like the Nikkor 45mmP, with a dual-aspheric element and a compact footprint. The Nokton 58mm f1.4 SLII will invoke fond memories for users of the Topcon SLR who used similar lenses for a "normal" perspective. Both lenses are marketed under the Voightlander brand. No US sales information is currently available, but the new items should be available in Japan by December with an estimated price of under USD500 each.
