2009 -- 50th Anniversary of Cosina and 10th Anniversary of Cosina Voigtlander

Limited Edition -- ONLY 600 Lenses Worldwide!   

The 10th Anniversary of the Cosina Voigtlander collaboration happily coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Cosina.  To commemorate both events, Cosina's CEO Mr. Kobayashi issued two special vintage style nickel Voigtlander Leica screw mount lenses, the 50mm f/3.5 Heliar and the 50mm f/2 Heliar. Only 600 of each of the nickel 50/3.5's and 50/2's were produced worldwide -- each issued in presentation boxes with a screw mount adapter.  These are the first nickel Leica screw mount 50mm lenses since the 1930's!  Each nickel Heliar has its own unique serial number. FOR NICKEL 50/3.5 HELIAR INFO

To my eyes, the Nickel 50/2 Voigtlander Heliar is the prettiest lens made so far in the Cosina-Voigtlander collaboration. To me the beauty is its classic styling combined with the very pretty Nickel finish.  Long term, I think the Nickel 50/2 Heliars will be sought by shooters and collectors alike!

RANGEFINDER NEWBIES: This is a Leica Screw Mount Lens.  It will work perfectly and rangefinder couple to all classic Leica Screw Mount cameras, including all Leica Screw Mounts (II, III, IIIa, IIIb, IIIc, IIIf, IIIg), Voigtlander Bessa R, Canon Screw Mount rangefinders -- to name a few.  IN ADDITION just add a 50mm screw mount to Leica M adapter, and the lens will mount and rangefinder focus on all Leica M mount cameras.
