Additional information:


The Voigtlander Ultra-Wide Heliar 12mm f/5.6 Aspherical   is an extreme wide-angle prime lens ever produced for a 35 mm rangefinder camera. It covers diagonal angle of view of 121°.

It has nice color rendering. It is very well resistant to back light, it can turn both sunshine and night lamps in the frame into stars. Images have a pronounced vignette.

The lens is not coupled with a range finder, focusing is done by means of a distance scale.

It comes completed with a viewfinder and a hood. A filter is attached to the lens by means of an adapter, which is delivered separately.
