Cosina has released NOKTON Vintage Line 35mm F1.5 Aspherical VM (Type I/ Type II) replacement lens from Foct Render brand.

NOKTON Vintage Line 35mm F1.5 Aspherical is a compact, compact, compact size, outstanding optical performance, and large caliber lens that combines three elements.

The 35mm lens, standardized as a replacement lens for a rangefinder-style camera, has been a popular focal range from the 20th century to the present, and the Foct Render brand currently offers five different 35mm lenses in VM mounts. Each lens has its own unique features, but this product was created by the pursuit of a new standard lens that balanced them overall.

NOKTON Vintage Line 35mm F1.5 Aspherical is a standard lens for range finder cameras, it has a large caliber and changes the filter width to ファ39mm, and the total length of the product from the mount surface is shorter than 36mm, and brings a tighter overall style. For a modern classic design inspired by the 1970s, there is an optical system consisting of six groups and nine lenses that use two double-sided non-spherical lenses. The F1.5’s open-to-open range delivers outstanding optical performance. The shortest shooting distance is 0.5m due to the use of a helicopter that can be extracted further from 0.7m (different depending on the camera you are mounted).

Exterior metals include 188g made of aluminum, TypeI, which has excellent light and mobility, and TypeII, which has 284g of gravity made of brass, which satisfies the desire. The TypeII finishes are available in black paint and silver (TypeI only has black finishes). Optional hood fits LH-4N with slits and classic style LH-12

The optical design of this lens has been optimized for the use of digital and film cameras with a range-connected digital camera, but shooting with the use of a mount adapter is also expected, and it can also be used for shooting on various platforms beyond the range of remote-connected cameras.
