Voigtlander 50mm F3.5 VM HELIAR Vintage Line

New Leica M mount version of the extraordinarily sharp 50/3.5 Heliar

Same glass as 50/3.5 Leica Screw Mount Voigtlander Lens -
The sharpest lens ever tested by Popular Photography! Please note this lens is M mount, not Leica Screw Mount as the test lens

In the March 2002 issue of the American Photography magazine Popular Photography,  you will find a hands on report of the 101 Heliar set on page 48.   Herbert Keppler, camera reviewer extraordinaire, reports "This wild but fascinating super classically styled camera comes in four delicious flavors and has what may be the best lens we have ever tested."  "Exquisite lens mount."  "We were very impressed with the immaculate finish of all parts of the Bessa-T Heliar 101 Years camera, lens, and trigger winder -- certainly a future collector's item."

As good as the hands on report was, the 50/3.5 Heliar lens test on page 74 was extraordinary. "Superb, all-metal, high-precision collapsible-tube lens mount."  "SQF results were excellent --  on a par with the best lenses we have ever tested."  "A handy, high-precision, magnificent lens to treasure.  It's doubtful that any other commercially made lens will produce superior results."
