Voigtlander 50mm f/2 50/2 Nickel Heliar Leica Screw Mount
with M Adapter

 2009 -- 50th Anniversary of Cosina and 10th Anniversary of Cosina Voigtlander

Limited Edition -- ONLY 600 Lenses Worldwide! 

only a few lenses remain! 

The 10th Anniversary of the Cosina Voigtlander collaboration happily coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Cosina.  To commemorate both events, Cosina's CEO Mr. Kobayashi issued two special vintage style nickel Voigtlander Leica screw mount lenses, the 50mm f/3.5 Heliar and the 50mm f/2 Heliar. Only 600 of each of the nickel 50/3.5's and 50/2's were produced worldwide -- each issued in presentation boxes with a screw mount adapter.  These are the first nickel Leica screw mount 50mm lenses since the 1930's!  Each nickel Heliar has its own unique serial number. FOR NICKEL 50/3.5 HELIAR INFO

To my eyes, the Nickel 50/2 Voigtlander Heliar is the prettiest lens made so far in the Cosina-Voigtlander collaboration. To me the beauty is its classic styling combined with the very pretty Nickel finish.  Long term, I think the Nickel 50/2 Heliars will be sought by shooters and collectors alike!

  • Classic style 50/2 Leica Screw Mount lens with infinity lock

  • Double Boxed Presentation Set with lens caps, lens hood, and screw mount to M adapter

  • Special NICKEL (not chrome) plating.  I believe these are the first nickel plated production Leica screw mount lenses since the very first interchangeable Leica lenses of the early 1930's

  • f/2 to f/16, click stopped every half stop

  • Special Serial Number: 600 each of the nickel Heliar 50/3.5 and 50/2 were produced.  The serial numbers  are divided up into 6 groups starting with H, E, L, I, A or R.  Numbers ranges from 001 to 100.  The lens above is H024.

  • Five optical elements in 3 groups

  • Ten Aperture Leaves for pleasing out of focus bokeh

  • Close focus 1 meter

  • Filter size 39mm

  • Weight 191g

  • Length 37.5mm

  • Included is a Rayqual Screw mount adapter with recesses for bar coding on digital Leica M bodies

  • The nickel 50/2 Heliar is a rigid lens - it does not collapse like the nickel 50/3.5 Heliar

  • Unlike the earlier collapsible 50/2 Heliar, the Nickel 50/2 will not mount the LH-4 Lens hood

RANGEFINDER NEWBIES: This is a Leica Screw Mount Lens.  It will work perfectly and rangefinder couple to all classic Leica Screw Mount cameras, including all Leica Screw Mounts (II, III, IIIa, IIIb, IIIc, IIIf, IIIg), Voigtlander Bessa R, Canon Screw Mount rangefinders -- to name a few.  IN ADDITION just add a 50mm screw mount to Leica M adapter, and the lens will mount and rangefinder focus on all Leica M mount cameras.
