Voigtländer Nokton 23mmF1.2 X Announcement in March and Shipping in April

According to rumors found and shared at Japanese websites such as Asobinet and Digicame-Info, the Voigtländer Nokton 23mmF1.2 for Fujifilm X will be announced “later this month” and ship in April.

We can be sure that the original source of this leak is Nokishita, who is all but gone ;).

This will be Cosina’s second Fujifilm X mount lens with electronic contacts after the Voigtländer Nokton 35mmF1.2 X.

Voigtländer Nokton 23mmF1.2 X Additional Specs and Images

Yesterday we reported how Cosina, in addition to the current Voigländer Nokton 35mm f/1.2 X, is about to launch also the Voigländer Nokton 23mm f/1.2 X.

Now Cosina has published the main specs and a new product image (see above) of this lens at their website in Japanese, which I now report here on FujiRumors machine translated.

A large aperture quasi-wide-angle lens with the latest optics using one double-sided aspherical lens and two abnormal partial dispersion glass. Although it is a compact size, it has excellent resolution from the aperture opening, and large blur due to the large aperture of F1.2 can be obtained.

Just as the 35mm version, also this one has electronic contacts to transfer certain information such as EXIF data.

I love the look of this lens, and actually also of the Voigländer Nokton 35mm f/1.2 X. And although I am tempted to get one, I so far have not treated myself with one, since I’d pay for features (the electronic contacts) that do not work on my Fujifilm X-E3.

This is why I got the much more affordable TTArtisan 23mm f/1.4, which you can see attached to my X-E3 here.

At the bottom of this article you will also find which Fujifilm X cameras are currently supported.

Voigtländer VM-X Close Focus Adapater for Fujifilm X Mount Cameras – First Images

At the CP+, Cosina displayed for the first time their Voigtländer VM-X close focus adapter, which will allow you to use Voigtländer VM and Zeiss ZM lenses on Fujifilm X-mount cameras.

The official Cosina PDF sheet says here – found via dc.watch here

“[google translated] Factorender VM mount and ZEISS ZM mount only. Mount adapter for mounting on Fujifilm X mount body. By incorporating a 4 mm stroke helicoid, it is possible to shoot “closer” from the shortest shooting distance of the lens body.”

FYI: also the Fujifilm X mount Zeiss Touit autofocus trinity is made by Cosina.

Images of the new adapter on Fujifilm cameras below.
