New Lens Announcement: Voigtlander 28mm f2.8 SL II (SLR: C/N)
We have a new lens announcement from the world of Cosina, an SLR lens under the Voigtlander brand, for the Canon and Nikon SLR mounts, it is the Voigtlander 28mm f2.8 SL II Color Skopar, with a price of 530 to 550 euro. Some early details at dpreview and Dkamera.de and Fotopolis.pl along with the Cosina (english) and lens specs at Voigtlander Europe (english).
Third-party lenses, both in the wild west of the mirrorless lands and the world of SLRs are making a comeback! Will this be the year of the lens? Since we have such a flurry of new lens announcements, will the lens manufacturers start paying more attention to actual photographer feedback and make the lenses photographers have been asking for? Except for the 10-1000mm f0.95 IS lens, that one is slightly more difficult to make in this century ;-)
