The new version of Voigtlander’s 40mm Ultron lens and the brand new 40mm Nokton lens are both ready to ship, and the company has finally revealed pricing as well. The more affordable Ultron will cost you ¥60,000/£479/$515, while the more expensive (and faster) Nokton will cost ¥135,000/£749 (~ $1000 USD).

The Ultron 40mm f/2 SL ll-S is the third generation 40mm f/2 for Nikon that the company has made, and brings with it the distinctive 'bunny ears' coupling fork so it can now be used with non-Ai film cameras. The lens has enjoyed an external make-over to deliver a Nikon-like retro look, while internally a new helicoid ring allows a closer minimum focusing distance of just 25cm, and 1:4 reproduction.

The lens is obviously manual focus, but contacts with the body transmit shooting information for EXIF data purposes. The lens is available now in a black or silver rim finish.

Voigtlander makes quite a range of lenses for the Sony E-mount, and the latest is the 40mm f/1.2 Nokton, which the company claims is the fastest 40mm available for the system.

It features a 10-bladed f/1.2 iris and electronic contacts ensure EXIF data is recorded and Sony’s in-camera image stabilization system is fully functional with the lens. The Nokton offers both clicked and clickless aperture rotation, and its eight-elements-in-six-groups construction makes for a minimum focusing distance of 35cm. The lens goes on sale on 5th October.
