Two new Voigtländer lenses for Nikon and Pentax digital SLRs are poised for their UK debut.

?The Nikon-mount 40mm f/2 ULTRON SL-II Aspherical will be available in mid-November, with a Pentax KA-mount version to following soon after,? confirmed a spokesman for UK importer Robert White Photographic Limited.

The NOKTON 58mm f/1.4 SL-II is due to be available in the UK from mid-December.

Again, the Nikon-fit (AIS) lens will be available first, with the Pentax KA version to follow, according Robert White.

The ULTRON is described as a pancake-type lens with a magnification ratio of 1:4.

The NOKTON is understood to be an ideal portraiture lens, designed to deliver a 35mm viewing angle equivalent of around 85mm when used on a DSLR with an APS-C-size sensor.

It focuses down to 0.45m and produces a 1:5.8 magnification, according to Japanese trade newsletter Pen News Weekly.

The lenses will cost around £240.
