The Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar Aspherical II 15mm f/4.5 Lens for Leica M Cameras is one of the best lenses, really a lens that put Voigtlander on the map for the Leica M mount shooters.  The Super Wide-Heliar's likely the most practical choice as your widest lens for use with Leica M8 cameras and future digital rangefinder Leica M mount offerings. The lens is fitted with a 52mm UV/IR rejection filter and coded as "WATE" to the Leica M8 is giving you the best experience of light falloff and cyan shifting for extreme correction.

The Super Wide-Heliar uses the same optical formula as its predecessor and adds accurate rangefinder coupling, 52mm filter threads, and a modern Leica M mount. It offers a f/4.5 maximum aperture, but unlike other lenses it performs nearly as brilliantly at f/4.5 as it will at friendlier apertures of f/5.6-11.0.  This lens triggers the 28/90mm framelines on Leica M bodies.

  • Now rangefinder coupled and with Leica bayonet M mount
  • Accepts 52mm filters, very important for Leica M8 users
  • An ideal performing ultra wide angle lens
  • Tack-sharp even at f/4.5
  • Sturdy metal barrel
  • Fixed-position petite lens hood
  • Supremely compact; just 1.5" long and only 0.35 lb
  • 10-Bladed aperture diaphragm
  • Full multicoatings upon every optical surface
  • Made in Japan
