Cosina has announced it’s bringing two of its Voigtlander prime lenses to Nikon mirrorless cameras. According to Cosina, the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm F1.2 Aspherical and Macro APO-Ultron 35mm F2 will be available for Nikon Z-mount cameras systems.

The Nokton 40mm D F1.2 Aspherical was previously only available for Leica M-mount and Sony E-mount camera systems. That will soon change though, as Voigtlander is will offer a manual focus Z-mount version that has an integrated chip and electronic contacts for transmitting EXIF data and integrating with Nikon’s sensor-shift image stabilization capabilities on compatible cameras.

Like the existing models, the Z-mount version is constructed of eight elements in six groups, including two double-sided aspherical elements. It features a 10-blade aperture diaphragm, has an aperture range of F1.2 through F22, uses a 52mm front filter thread and (although unconfirmed in the information) will likely have the same minimum focusing distance of 50cm (19.7”).

Cosina hasn’t announced when the lens will be available, nor for how much it will retail, but the M-mount version currently retails for $699.

Cosina is also bringing its X-mount Macro APO-Ultron D 35mm F2 lens to Nikon Z-mount cameras. As you’d expect from a lens designed for a crop-sensor system, however, this model will be limited to APS-C Nikon Z-mount cameras or full-frame Z-mount cameras when shot in Nikon’s DX-format crop mode.

This lens will use the same design as its X-mount predecessor, including an optical construction consisting of nine elements in six groups, including three abnormal partial-dispersion glass elements. The lens features a 10-blade aperture diaphragm, an F1.2 to F22 aperture range, has a minimum focusing distance of 16.3cm (6.4”) and uses a 49mm front filter thread.

As with the Nokton 40mm F1.2, this lens has an integrated chip and electronic contacts for transmitting EXIF data and will work with Nikon’s sensor-shift image stabilization capabilities on compatible cameras.

Cosina hasn’t provided a launch date or expected pricing, but the X-mount version is currently retailing for $699, so it’s likely safe to assume the Z-mount version will retail for about the same.
