Voigtlander 50mm f3.5 Heliar Vintage Line VM Lens

Paying homage to the classic designs of some of Voigtlander's earliest lenses, the Heliar 50mm f/3.5 is a unique normal-length prime intended to provide a vintage image quality, complete with rich colour saturation and high sharpness.

Compatible with 35mm film and full-frame M-mount rangefinder cameras, this lens uses a traditional Heliar optical design and features a durable all-metal exterior with an engraving of the five-elements-in-three-groups optical layout. Smooth manual focus operation permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away, and a de-clicked manual aperture ring permits making smooth, silent aperture transitions to benefit both stills and video applications. Additionally, a 10-blade diaphragm is featured to contribute to a smooth bokeh quality.

  • Simple five elements, three groups Heliar optical design is used to offer a classic image quality with strong colour reproduction and fine sharpness.
  • Exterior of the lens is designed to match some of the earliest Voigtlander lenses from the 19th century, and features an all-metal build for durability as well as an engraved rendition of the Heliar design.
  • Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away, and the lens will couple to rangefinder mechanisms for focusing accuracy.
  • De-clicked manual aperture ring permits smooth, seamless aperture adjustments, and a 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
  • A screw-in type lens hood is included to protect the front element from stray light while shooting, and a dedicated metal front lens cap is also provided to guard the lens while not in use.
