What's going on with the Voightlander 20mm?
« on: December 30, 2012, 07:37:00 PM »
They have a new rev of that line of lenses with a machined focusing ring rather than rubber grip. They've introduced the new 40mm with this feature, but the old 20mm has been discontinued and the new one isn't out yet. I believe it was supposed to be introduced in early summer.

Does anybody know anything about this lens?

Can you be a bit more specific about the lenses you're talking about?

I never heard of any Voigtländer lens with a "machined" focus ring - I'm not even sure what you mean.

Latest rev of the lens has a metal focus ring, previous version was rubber. Announced early last year, at the moment you can't buy the lens at all

The italian distributor has it, you may send them an email to ask if they're shipping to Germany :)
