Product Overview

Leica Elmarit-M 28mm F2.8 ASPH is a manual-focus wide-angle prime lens for Leica M-mount. It covers the Full-Frame image circle. Introduced by Leica in 2006, it has 8 elements in 6 groups.
Manual focus may be limiting to some, but purists will find it much more engaging. There are also fewer things to go wrong on the long run.
As a wide-angle prime lens that is quite compact, the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm F2.8 ASPH can be an interesting component of a prime-lens kit well adapted for travel. 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. Those who like sunstars (sun bursts) will be pleased by the lens' even-numbered aperture count, though conversely those who find sunstars distracting may have the opposite feeling.
