The 35mm F2 Apo-Lanthar Aspherical is an interchangeable lens exclusively for full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras with Nikon Z mount.
The Apo-Lanthar designation is given to especially high performance lenses in the Voigtlander lens lineup, with APO being derived from the apochromatic optical design. A need for apochromatic optical designs that reduce the longitudinal chromatic aberrations of the three primary colours (RGB) of light to practically zero arose with the increasing popularity of colour film. Now, with the current range of high-resolution digitals sensors, this need for extremely high-level control of chromatic aberration is even more pertinent than when film changed from monochrome to colour in the middle of the 20th century. So rather than just being for solved old technologies, apochromatic optical designs are indeed a subject requiring serious consideration in the digital age.
The Voigtlander 35mm f2 Aspherical is a high performance manual focus standard lens, optimised for the imaging sensors of Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras. Inheriting the apochromatic optical design, the lens is highly corrected to eliminate optical aberrations including longitudinal chromatic aberration. In addition, it is optimised for the ultimate performance of the resolution and contrast & reproducibility. (Ref. MTF chart) The lens constructed with 9 groups & 11 elements has five abnormal partial dispersion glasses, two aspherical surface elements and built-in floating focus system
When using a camera supporting the transfer of lens data, electronic contacts on the lens allow exif data, in-body image stabilisation (3 axes) & three types of focusing support (changing the focus point frame colour, focusing by peaking & focusing with the enlargement button)
The 35mm f2 Apo-Lanthar Aspherical is the perfect combination of the ultimate optical performance and compactness, with an overall length of 70.4mm and a weight of 360g for easy portability.
