The Leica APO-Tele-Elmar-S 180mm f/3.5 lens is a high-speed telephoto lens for the Leica S Medium Format Camera system. An ultra-fast aperture of f/3.5, combined with the longer focal length, make this lens an ideal choice when shooting portraits or images where a shallow depth of field is ideal.
Versatile telephoto with unmatched optics
The Leica APO-Tele-Elmar-S 180mm lens is well suited to a variety of applications, thanks to its telephoto focal length and superior optical design. The design and implementation of special lens elements have virtually eliminated vignetting, distortions, and chromatic aberrations to such a degree that images no longer require post-production editing.
Unparalleled precision for maximum sharpness
The Leica APO-Tele-Elmar-S 180mm lens utilizes a number of special optical elements and aspherical surfaces to achieve maximum resolving capabilities, and microprocessors to achieve precise autofocus and iris diaphragm control. Each lens is also centered and tested by hand, ensuring that the optical performance is at its peak, and higher expectations are met.
