Leica 28mm F/2.8 Elmarit-M Aspherical 6 Bit M Mount Lens 11606 {39} Description


The Leica 28mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M Aspherical is a compact, wide-angle manual focus lens built for the Leica M-system of rangefinder film and digital cameras.  It's an astonishingly good lens; it's one of Leica's best lens choices for landscape, photojournalism, and architectural work.

The rugged all-metal barrel on the Leica 28mm has an aspherical design with eight elements in six groups to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions, producing sharp images with minimal distortion and gorgeous color rendering.  This lens is also ideal for street and general photography as the design keeps the lens compact at just 30mm (1.18in) and 180g (6.35oz), and provides negligible obstruction when looking through the view finder.

With a maximum f/2.8 aperture and minimum focus distance of 0.7m (2.3ft), you can achieve an impressive depth-of-field and astonishingly sharp imagery.
