A large angle of view, relatively high speed, and excellent imaging performance, even at full aperture are a perfect combination to give this lens a special place in dynamic photojournalism in confined spaces. It creates impressive images with extraordinary perspectives, but without the impression that a super-wide-angle lens was used.
This lens works on all Leica R models. If you wish to use it on the original Leicaflex series it has to be modified by a Leica service center.
Leica R Series Lenses The Leica R lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 16mm to 800mm, form an impressive array that is distinguished by their perfect imaging quality, pinpoint sharpness and exceptional brilliance without flare. High-quality types of glass made according to specific Leica formulas, the legendary Leica optical design, optimized broad-band coating, and scrupulous care in production guarantee the proverbial Leica quality. Other features include: Leica R lenses can be used without limitations in temperatures ranging from -25deg. to +60deg. C (-13deg. to +140deg. F) All lenses are protected against corrosion to ensure problem-free operation under virtually all climatic conditions Impact- and shock resistance of Leica R lenses is unusually high Leica R lenses can be placed on a flat surface without their rear covers. Because there are no protruding cams or control linkages, there is no danger of damaging them The automatic iris diaphragm operates on ball bearings. Even after 50,000 cycles, no wear can be detected on the diaphragm mechanism All Leica R lenses are equipped with lens hoods designed specifically for them, in most cases as an integral part of the lenses A large angle of view, relatively high speed and excellent imaging performance, even at full aperture are a perfect combination to give this lens a special place in dynamic photojournalism in very confined spaces. It creates impressive images with extraordinary perspectives, but without the impression that a super-wide-angle lens was used.
