Cosina Announces a SE Version of the Nokton 40mm f/1.2 Aspherical SE Prime Lens for Sony E-Mount Cameras
Cosina has announced the upcoming release of its latest Voigtlander Nokton 40mm f/1.2 SE lens. Designed for Sony E-mount cameras, the new Voigtlander SE (Still Edition) lenses are smaller and lighter than their Voigtlander standard Nokton siblings.
The manual 40mm F1.2 SE lens is nearly identical to its non-SE version. It’s constructed of eight elements in six groups, features an aperture range of f/1.2 – f/22, has a 55-degree field of view, and uses a 10-blade aperture diaphragm. The SE version also features the same built-in encoder for metadata and distance, which works alongside Sony’s in-body image stabilization to offer the best results.
As with other lenses in the SE series, the only notable difference compared to the non-SE version is a slightly changed external design, different groves on the rings, and the removal of the aperture de-click button.
