Voigtländer recently announced their latest lens to their line-up - the Heliar classic 75mm f/1.8. It complements their other fast M-mount lens offerings of the Nokton 35mm f/1.2 and Nokton 50mm f/1.1 - the f/1.2 is famed as the fastest rangefinder (RF) lens available at the 35mm focal length, whist the f/1.1 offers a readily available alternative to the USD10,495 Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, at a tenth of the price.
For those who have been awaiting for a fast and affordable RF 75mm lens, here it is - The new Heliar classic at f/1.8 comes in a third-stop faster than Leica's current APO-Summicron-M 75mm f/2 ASPH and at about one-fifth the price.
