Voigtlander 75mm f/2.5 75mm f/2.5 Color Heliar

 Leica Screw Mount  

   Discontinued but still in stock


Introduced in Japan in August 1999, I believe the new 75mm f/2.5 Color Heliar is the first screw mount 75 produced since before W.W.II, and the only multicoated 75 Leica screw mount lens ever.   Postwar of course, there is the 75/1.4 Summilux for Leica M.  The 75mm f/2.5 is rangefinder coupled, very well finished, and styled much like the classic 1950's Leica lenses.  It's multicoated, has six elements in five groups,  click stops every half stop, and a close focus of 1 meter. Care was taken with a 10 leaf diaphragm blades, to produce maximum out of focus images -- called "Bokeh" by Japanese photogs. Weight is 8 oz.    Collectors:  some early 75mm f/2.5's were mis-engraved.  Their closest focusing distance in feet is engraved "5.3" instead of "3.5."   Again, users reports great, sharp images with the 75mm f/2.5.   The 43mm filter fits tightly inside the shade, and is not accessible for removal or mounting without 1st removing the shade.   Included with the lens is the screw in lens shade and front and back caps.    The lens cap fits over lens shade.  This modern multi-coated lens is probably the sharpest 75mm ever made in Leica Screw Mount.  While this lens was produced in silver or black, only a few black remain - get them while you can!   It will fit and focus accurately on any Leica M camera by adding the screw mount to M adapter!

For the Leica M3, M4, M4-2 and M5 which have no 75mm frame, you have the choice of using the 50/75 adapter and getting the 50mm frame, or the 28/90 adapter and getting the 90mm frame.  Most of the other M's including the digitals will bring up a  75 frameline with the 50/75 screw mount adapter.  The Leica CL, Minolta CL, Minolta CLE, Zeiss ZM and Konica Hexar RF will all bring up the 50mm frameline with the 50/75 adapter.  With the various Bessas and Epson RD1 you can manually select the 50 or 75mm frameline.  Adapted to the various NEX, M43 and other "mirrorless" digital cameras, most shooters work with live view, but most cameras will allow you to add accessory viewfinders if you prefer them.  Your choice depends upon the crop factor of the camera you are using.
