Product Overview

Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35mm F3.5-4.5 ASPH is a wide-angle zoom lens for Leica L-mount. It covers the Full-Frame image circle. Introduced by Leica in 2018, it has 18 elements in 12 groups.
Photographers will be pleased by the fact that the lens is internally-zooming, meaning that the barrel does not extend when the focal length is changed. This helps balance and weather sealing; it is also great for long-term durability, as there is less chance for moisture and dirt to get in.
As a wide-angle lens, this zoom can be prove quite versatile, even though it is not really bright. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.
Some photographers may be disappointed by the fact that the lens does not accept front screw-on filters.
