New firmware update for the LEICA S and LEICA S2 / News / Home Page - LEICA Camera AG
A 45 mm f2,8
Leica Camera is pleased to add the Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH., a high-performance wide-angle lens, to its lens portfolio for the Leica S media format system. There are now a total of nine lenses available.
The Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. corresponds to that of a classic 35 mm lens for 35 mm photography. Its moderate wide-angle character with simultaneously natural reproduction of perspectives makes it ideal for landscapes, architectural and studio photography. At the same time, a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 makes the lens ideal for available-light photography and the conscious use of selective planes of focus. A further highlight of this lens is its excellent control of flare to ensure high-contrast images, even when shooting a back lit subject. A total of 12 lenses are used to achieve the highest optical performance.
The Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is available at Leica Authorized Dealers in a choice of versions with and without an integrated central shutter.
