Leica 35mm F/2.8 Elmarit 2 Cam R Mount Lens {Series 6} Description


The Elmarit-R is a retro-focus type consisting of 7 elements in 6 groups. This versatile wideangle lens provides excellent contrast and resolution. Optimum performance is reached as early as F/4. Special lens coating and UV absorbing cement are utilized to reduce transmission of UV light. In practice, for the close focusing range below 40 inches, the lens should be stopped down, if possible, to F/11. Suitable for copy work
