The black Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens excels in low-light conditions and is also characterized by its consistent sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture and focusing ranges. One aspherical element and a floating elements system, as well as seven elements made from anomalous partial dispersion glass, help to produce color-correct, sharp imagery with minimal distortion and aberrations. Wide-angle prime is well-suited to everyday shooting as well as landscape, reportage, and architectural applications. One aspherical element helps to control spherical aberrations and distortions at all aperture and focus positions for improved sharpness, even illumination, and reduced vignetting. The floating elements system maintains consistent image quality throughout the focusing range.
The black Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. is an ultra-fast normal-length prime characterized by its unique rendering quality, ability to isolate subject matter, and exceptional low-light performance. A floating elements system is also used to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, from 3.3′ to infinity. Extremely fast f/0.95 maximum aperture affords notable control over depth of field for selective focus shooting, and also benefits working handheld in low-light conditions. Referencing a double Gauss-type optical design, the lens is constructed with eight elements in five groups. Five of the elements are made from anomalous partial dispersion glass and three are made from high refractive index glass to produce distinct rendering quality while limiting color fringing and chromatic aberrations. A rear floating element is employed to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, even at the minimum focusing distance of 3.3′.
The silvers Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a general wide-angle lens characterized by its sophisticated optics and bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. The fast lens is well-suited for available light photography and also affords greater control over depth of field for selective focus shooting. Versatile general wide-angle prime features a bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light conditions and for greater control over depth of field. The floating elements system achieves consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, even at the minimum focusing distance of 2.3′.
The R-Adapter M from Leica enables Leica R lenses to be mounted on the Leica M series cameras. The R-Adapter M can attach R lenses to any M-series digital camera, such as the M-E or M Monochrom, however, with the M Digital Rangefinder’s Live View capability, use of the R lenses is optimized. There are no electronics or mechanical functions between camera and lens that are bridged by the adapter, however, when the adapter is attached to the M camera, a list of 20 dedicated R lens profiles is made available on the camera, including EXIF lens recognition and calibrated imaging workflows for each lens. While all R lenses can be mounted to the M camera with this adapter, only the last generation of R lenses can receive digital corrections, such as the reduction of corner vignetting, via the adapter.
The Leica Macro-Adapter-M is placed between the camera and M-mount lens to increase the lens-to-sensor distance and achieve maximum reproduction ratios up to 1:2 for close-up shooting. Its design incorporates a helical screw system, which can be used to vary the adapter’s extension length between 0.7-1.2″ for greater flexibility in setting a closer focusing distance than the lens natively allows as well as increasing the reproduction ratio. The adapter is designed for use on Leica cameras featuring a live view function (such as the M Typ 240) and lenses with focal lengths greater than 28mm.
The Super-Elmar-M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH. is a unique lens characterized by its sophisticated optical design and impressively sleek form factor. Utilizing one double-sided aspherical element and four anomalous partial dispersion elements, spherical and chromatic aberrations, and distortions are minimized and sharpness is maintained throughout the aperture range. The aspherical element also contributes to the compact form factor, and the manual focusing design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3′ away.
The Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35mm f/3.5-4.5 ASPH. from Leica is a versatile wide-angle zoom designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. Complementing the flexible wide-angle design is a sophisticated optical layout that utilizes a pair of aspherical elements and three low dispersion elements to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to realize a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Multi-layer coatings have also been applied to limit flare and ghosting for increased contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Benefitting the optical assets is a stepping motor, which delivers fast and quiet autofocus performance, and a floating elements system maintains consistent imaging quality throughout the focusing range.
The Summilux-SL 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens from Leica promises to create phenomenal images with edge-to-edge sharpness, even wide open. Designed for Leica’s full-frame SL-series of mirrorless cameras, this 50mm benefits from a new design granted by the short flange distance. It also leverages two aspherical elements and four anomalous partial dispersion elements in order to keep aberrations to an absolute minimum. The fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 furthers your imaging capabilities by creating images with a shallow depth of field and in low-light conditions.
The black Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a general wide-angle lens characterized by its sophisticated optics and bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. The fast lens is well-suited for available light photography and also affords greater control over depth of field for selective focus shooting. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element to control spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and clarity, and a floating elements system is used to maintain performance throughout the focusing range.
Pairing the classic normal focal length with an optically refined design, the black APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. Lens from Leica is a fast standard prime characterized by its apochromatic designation. Using anomalous partial dispersion and high refractive index glasses in its design, this lens is capable of focusing red, green, and blue wavelengths at the same plane in order to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations. One aspherical element is also featured in the design, to reduce spherical aberrations, and a floating element maintains clarity and sharpness throughout the focusing range from 2.3′ to infinity.
Designed for working with close-up subjects, the black APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60mm f/2.8 ASPH. from Leica is an L-mount lens designed for the T-series of APS-C mirrorless cameras, and provides a 90mm equivalent focal length. Its true macro design permits working with a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification ratio, along with a 6.3″ minimum focusing distance (or a 2.4″ minimum working distance). An internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length during operation, too, for easier handling and use with close-up subjects.
