Cosina has announced that it is about to launch its fourth manual-focus prime lens for the Fujifilm X-mount range of mirrorless cameras. The Voigtländer ULTRON 27mm F2 gives an effective focal length of a 40mm standard lens, once the 1.5x crop factor of the Fujifilm APS-C sensors.

The traditional design of the Voiglander lenses are perfectly in keeping with the retro design used by many of the Fujifilm X-mount models. And the new 27mm f/2 is a particularly small prime that will appeal to those wanting to travel light. There is a choice of either a black or silver finish - to help you match the lens to the finish of your camera body.
