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.
