The Voigtländer Heliar Classic 1.5/50mm VM is a deliberate counterpart to the high-performance lenses of today. It is designed to show a shaping-classic image at open aperture through deliberately left aberration. The lens configuration consists of six lenses in three groups, and interprets the original heli-type. Especially at the aperture of f1.5, a bokeh effect is apparent, creating spherical and comatic aberrations at the edges of the image, which would be difficult to create in digital processing. This effect diminishes with increasingly smaller apertures and from aperture F4 the new Heliar Classic 1,5/50mm VM behaves largely distortion-neutral. The overall image effect can be described as picturesque and velvety. The lens barrel is made of aluminium, the focusing ring is made of brass. The aperture ring, has a fine diamond pattern. The close-up limit is 50cm, and a high-precision rangefinder coupling is provided.
