Quick note: Nokton 35/1.2 II will come in August

Via rangefinderforum.com.

According to this page on Cosina’s website (reminder: Cosina is the Japanese manufacturer that produces most of the Voigtländer and Zeiss photographic products), the new Voigtländer Nokton 35/1.2 II will be released in August. According to Cosina, it will retail for approx. 135k JPY, which is quite a bit steeper than the original version.

The page also mentions that the new 35/1.2 has now three aspherical surfaces, as opposed to the original version which had two aspherical surfaces. As the original 35/1.2 Nokton was a highly regarded lens, the rangefinder community is of course very anxious to see inhowfar the optical qualities of the v. II will compare to those of v. I.

P.S.: In the rff thread linked to above, you can find the lens schematics of both version to compare. The overall construction remains the same, only the aspherical lenses have been altered, as Cosina have stated earlier.
