Reasons to buy from Park Cameras

Voigtlander 65mm f2 E-Mount Macro Apo-Lanthar Aspherical, which inherits the designation “APOLANTHAR", is a high performance manual focus macro lens optimized for the imaging sensors of Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras.

The optical performance of this lens, which provides an image circle capable of covering a full frame sensor, rates as one of the finest in the history of Voigtländer. Sharp imaging performance is obtained from maximum aperture where you can enjoy blurring the background, and by utilizing a floating mechanism this lens delivers outstanding image quality for subjects from the minimum focusing distance of 31cm (reproduction ratio of 1:2) through to infinity. This lens is a manual focus and manual aperture design, but also features electrical contacts that enable the lens settings at image capture to be included in the Exif information of the image data. Furthermore, the lens is installed with a distance encoder to enable support for 5-axis image stabilization on bodies with this feature, for example by providing distance to subject information used in X,Y shift compensation. Focus peaking while manual focusing is also supported.

Our Verdict

Voigtlander are the oldest name in camera lenses, having been founded in 1756 in Vienna. Today, they make some of the world's highest quality lenses, and this 65mm f/2 macro is no different.

Built exclusively for the full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras means that it's perfectly optimised to work with the latest high resolution digital imaging sensors. With a apochromatic optical design, this macro lens almost entirely eliminates chromatic aberration across the imaging surface for exceptionally high quality image reproduction.

Being a manual focus lens means that users have optimal control over the precise focusing, which is perfect for macro photographers who need to focus on a specific element within their image. The wide-open f/2 aperture means that this lens is ideal for low light conditions, even when used for its non-macro capabilities.
