PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Leica Super-Elmar-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. will help you capture the expansiveness of space like few other tools. Nominally larger than a standard lens, it boasts an extreme angle of view of up to 100 degrees and reaches far into the field of super wide angle lenses, at the same time guaranteeing the outstanding lens qualities that are typical for Leica. The Leica Super-Elmar-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. broadens the horizon not only in architecture and landscape photography but in many other areas as well. Excellent performance and compact design The Leica Super-Elmar-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. successfully merges ambitious wide angle photography with the very best of optical quality and compact design. This is achieved thanks to a patented, space saving, yet extremely effective lens hood. The lens is a super wide angle lens with an impressive angle of view, especially when mounted on an analogue Leica M model or a full frame digital camera, such as the M9. Its retrofocus-like architecture features eight lens elements of which one boasts two aspherical surfaces to ensure outstanding image quality already at open aperture. Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm - Intuitive framing The rangefinder camera coupled with the bright Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm is a high-precision instrument, yet precision focusing isn't always necessary thanks to sufficient depth of field reserves (hyperfocal technique). This solution is ideal for spontaneous and intuitive photography with the Leica M.
