A sophisticated wide-angle prime, the Sony E-mount APO-LANTHAR 35mm f/2 Aspherical from Voigtlander holds the elite distinction of being part of the APO-LANTHAR series of optically refined, apochromatic lenses. A series of anomalous partial dispersion and aspherical elements help to suppress virtually all aberrations for especially high sharpness and color accuracy, and a floating elements system maintains consistent performance throughout the focusing range. A manual focus design is employed, along with a high precision helicoid, for refined focusing control and a Selective Aperture Control System allows the manual aperture ring to be de-clicked for smooth, silent exposure adjustment to suit filmmaking applications. Additionally, a 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality. This lens is compatible with Sony E-mount features, including Exif data transfer, manual focus assist, auto lens correction, and 5-axis lens stabilization.
