Leica S Lenses

Leica also announced three new Leica S lenses:

  • Super-wide Leica Super-Elmar-S 24 mm f/3.5 ASPH.
  • Zoom lens Leica Vario-Elmar-S 30-90 mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH.
  • Tilt/shift lensLeica TS-APO-Elmar-S 120 mm f/5.6 ASPH.

Leica now offers also the Leica Elpro-S 180 close-up lens specially calculated for the Leica APO-Elmar-S 180 mm f/3.5. It reduces the close focusing distance to 1.1 metres and achieves a reproduction ratio of up to 1:4.5
