Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH
Leica's brand new Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f2.8 ASPH is part of their L-Mount lens range. Designed to be compact and fast, this standard zoom lens is an ideal addition to any Leica photographer's or videographer's portfolio.
Compact Standard Zoom
The new 24-70mm f/2.8 is extremely compact for a zoom lens. It fits comfortably onto any L-Mount Leica camera with minimal disturbance to the balance of the camera in your hand. This makes it a perfect travel lens for those wanting to photograph on the go with a lens that responds quickly to any shooting scenario without needing to change lenses.
The lens is constructed out of 19 elements in 15 groups, including three aspherical lens elements which correct monochromatic aberations, as well as nine elements made from glasses with anomlaous partial dispertion for the correction of chormatic aberations. A single lightweight lens element moves for fast, virtually lag-free autofocus. The 11 aperture blades then ensure harmonious bokeh for endless creative compostions.
Enjoy a constant aperture of f2.8 at any focal range. Whether you are shooting an extreme close up or telephoto, this lens can always be opened up to f2.8 no matter what focusing distance is selected. Additionally, shoot confidently, even in low light at f2.8 with minimal disturbance. This option opens up creative possibilities for portraiture and product photography by highlighting the desired subject and surrounding them with a blurred background with natural and creamy bokeh.
Corrected Chromatic Aberrations
The Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 is constructed of glass elements including three aspherical (ASPH) lens elements. This vastly helps the lens correct focusing aberrations and create crisp focus from corner to corner. Chromatic Aberrations are fixed by the nine elements of anomalous glass that make up the construction of the lens.
18cm Minimum Focusing Distance
Get close and personal with your chosen subject. The 24-70 Vario Elmarit has an impressive minimum focusing distance of just 18cm. Perfect for macro photography and extreme close up shots. Pair this with the f2.8 for sharp highlighted points of view in your photography.

What does Vario-Elmarit-SL mean?
Leica names their lenses based on a few different qualities. This is how this lens breaks down:
Vario = zoom lens
Elmarit = aperture of f2.8
SL = made for a full frame sensor
What does Constant Aperture mean?
Constant Aperture means that no matter what focal distance you select to take your image at, the maximum aperture that you can open this too is always f2.8. You can however change the aperture number, just because it is constant does not mean it is fixed and you can therefore expand the amount you have in focus just as you can on most other lenses.
What is this lens best for?
The standard 24-70mm zoom makes it a perfect all-rounder lens. We think it will be a great travel companion though.
