The Vintage Line lenses have a classic-style exterior, with an all-metal barrel and a design to suit more traditional cameras. Voigtländer says though that the optical design is thoroughly modern with the aim of excellent image quality in that matches today’s camera standards. The coupled rangefinder system will suit Leica M and Voigtländer’s own Bessa cameras, and allows focusing distances from 0.7m (2.25ft). The lens uses 7 elements in 6 groups, including aspherical correction and the iris features 12 blades.
Measuring 63.3mm (2.5in) long and 62.8mm (2.47in) in diameter, the lens weighs 350g (12.35oz) and will use a 58mm filter.
