The new Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH high-speed lens is the most compact of Leica M-Lenses. The use of an aspherical element has made it possible to attain top imaging performance with a weight of only 180 grams. This lens is virtually distortion-free down to the close focus range of 0.7 m and only protrudes slightly into the viewfinder field of M-Cameras.
Versatility is a must for street photography, which is why Leica made the Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. so compact and flexible. The classical focal length of 28mm gives a wide, natural field of view to your photographs, making this model so popular among street and reportage photographers.
