Press Release (Google Translated)001 s - Cosina APO-LANTHAR 90mm F3.5 SL II for EF
Cosina has announced the Voigtländer-branded Apo-Lanthar 90mm F3.5 SL II close focus lens for Canon, Nikon and Pentax mounts. Maintaining the same 50cm minimum focusing distance and optical construction of the previous, SL version, the lens has been redesigned with a smaller body. Additionally, by mounting the included close up lens, its closest focusing distance can be reduced down to 32cm, giving a magnification ratio of 1:1.8. Priced at ¥58,000 (~ US $645) for the Canon EF mount and ¥55,000 (~ US $610) for the Nikon Ai-S mount and Pentax KA mount, it will be available in Japan from early March 2010.

  1. Some real ignorant replies regarding this lens. Like most specialized lens, if you don’t understand what the lens does or its ultimate purpose (and possible gains over non corrected lenses) you should just stick to your Auto Focus lenses.

    That aside, can’t wait for the 125/2.5 Macro and 180/4 APO lenses to be announced (assuming the 90mm is setting a precedent for a rerelease of Cosina’s APO lenses). They are definitely a bit more exciting (one being, obviously, a Macro lens and the other being a fairly compact telephoto).

  2. So you take somebody else’s statement and present it as mine to support your shaky opinions? I don’t think that will get you very far :P

    For the LoCA argument; well, you are wrong. But that’s cool with me.
