Voigtlander announces two new lenses

Cosina Voigtlander has announced two new versions of previous lenses. The 21mm f/4 P and the 25mm f/4 P will now be available with the M-series bayonet mount, instead of the Leica screw mount. Their introduction is intended to complement the release of their new Leica mount rangefinder cameras, the R4A and R4M, which have specially designed viewfinders for wide-angle lenses (built-in viewfinder frames for 21mm, 25mm, 28mm, 35mm, and 50mm lenses). Both lenses are now rangefinder coupled, but they won’t come with an accessory viewfinder, as they did in the screw mount versions.
