Leica 28mm f2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH - 2016 Model

The new classic prime lens for street photography!

  • A brilliant lens

    The Elmarit-M 28 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is the most compact lens in the entire portfolio of Leica M-Lenses. This is made possible by the use of an aspherical lens element, which enables particularly compact lens construction and a weight of only 180 grams. This makes the Elmarit-M a firm favourite with street and reportage photographers. Every scene can be composed to perfection thanks to a rectangular, full-metal lens hood with a screw mount that can be replaced by a screw-in protector ring when not in use.

  • Technical details

    This lens is optimised for digital photography and has significantly reduced image field curvature in comparison to the previous model. This results in considerably improved image performance with high resolution and extremely impressive reproduction of details. The Elmarit-M 28 mm f/2.8 ASPH.is practically distortion-free from infinity to its closest focusing distance of 0.7 metres, and provides an exeptionally clear view through the viewfinder of M cameras.

A well built and optically superb 28mm lens for the Leica M system. It is small and light - ideal when carrying a camera bag for long periods. It represents value for money.
There's nothing to dislike about this lens.

It’s an incredibly sharp lens with no distortion. Really compact and does not interfere with the rangefinder viewer at. My first Leica lens - well chuffed !

For its compactness and lightness it beats all its rivals. Moreover, as Leica lenses go it is good value for money.
Optical and mechanical performance quite superb.
One day the slide-on hood cap will slide off and disappear but it's a quibble
