I check on the same https://www.cosina.co.jp/news/ page, it usually gets updated exactly at 3pm JST when they announce a new release, but sometimes with a slight delay of a minute or two. Also Japanese online stores like Map Camera usually add pages for the new lens within minutes of official announcement.


Makes sense. It would get updated at 11pm one day before for me.

Which model is expected to sell the most among F3.5 Type 1, Type 2 and F2.2?

Cosina hasn't made any announcements about upcoming new releases this month until now so it's looking more and more likely that they will not release anything new in June... I'm a bit surprised about that since usually June is a very good timing to release new products in Japan (people usually get their summer bonus on 10th of June and are more likely to buy new stuff then).

I think the next likely announcement window for any July release(s) will be around 15th of June, but since that day happens to be a Saturday the announcement would likely come on a weekday close to 15th instead, most likely on 14th.

If they price it right, the 50mm f2.2 is going to sell incredibly. It's by far the smallest non-collapsible 50mm for Leica M, so street photographers especially will go crazy for it.

I am in anxious wait for the 2.2, it will be my main lens for everything from street to travel, documentary and wedding.
I can’t wait! The Summicron v5 is doing it for now but the flare at times just butchers a shot, and I don’t trust it anymore for that reason.

I'm also quite eager to see what the 50/2.2 will offer... My Cron V5 is not quite the perfect fit for me. The flare can be really frustrating, and sometimes I don't want to think about the little focus shift on the M11.

If the Voigtlander 50mm f/2.2 performs well, it has the potential to be a big seller for Cosina. I believe it will be the smallest (30mm length) and lightest (150g) 50mm lens at around f/2 ever made, and it focuses down to 0.5 meters. I expect it to perform similarly to the 50mm f/2 Summicron or the 50mm f/2 Zeiss ZM. Can't wait to try it along with the new 50 APO lenses.

Particularly interested in how the 50mm f2.2 performs. I wonder if it’s Voigtländer’s answer to the 50mm Summicron and the spiritual successor to the Zeiss 50mm f2 Planar (also made by Cosina) I love my 50mm f2 Planar but wish it had a focus tab and less CA.

Small lenses are so much more enjoyable to use on M cameras. Where is my 50 2.2?

Looking forward to it. Can’t have too many 50mm lenses! since getting an M11 I’ve become much more of a 50 person than I ever have been. It’s the most pleasant focal length to shoot on that camera.

Yeah, I've never enjoyed 50mm more than with an M camera. Even though the AF-S 58mm f/1.4 is the only reason for me to keep my Nikon DSLR around.

I've also been hovering over a C-Sonnar 50mm for the last year and just can't get myself to buy one. I wish I could try one first.

I have two wishes for the yet unreleased 50/2.2 Voigtlander.
- Hopefully no pincushion distortion.
- Hopefully it's not their widest 50mm lens yet. I find Voigtlander 50mm lenses have a very wide FOV compared to Leica (51-52mm)

I'm expecting some compromises based on its size, and perhaps it will have a slight pincushion effect. However, I prefer a little pincushion in exchange for lower optical vignetting. I hope the rendering is similar to what the Leica 50/2 provides -- smooth but with a touch of character!
I'm not too worried about flare with Cosina lenses because minimizing flare is typically a design priority for them.

I'm saying the 50 2.2 will be $500.

Based on the Cosina sample video, it looks like there will be only slight optical vignette, mild astigmatism, smooth bokeh in the center, outlined bokeh in the peripheries with outlining most pronounced on the inside edge, and very little glow. Seems difficult to judge the intensity of the vignetting, but I'd imagine the mild optical vignette in the bokeh is promising, despite ~-3.5EV being common in their lenses of this form factor.

Which video are you referring to? If it's the production introduction video, I don't believe it was shot with any of these new lenses.

Yeah, Cosina keep using the same intro and trailer parts in their product introduction videos (from a selection of few different ones that they have) and those must have been produced several years ago already, so they are not intended to show how the new lenses introduced in these product introduction videos perform.

Any chance for the new CV 50/2.2 coming in brass/black paint version as well?
