Special Order /Expected availability: 2-4 weeks
We proudly present a new lens by Leica Camera, the Leica Vario-Elmar-S 30-90mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH.
With the Leica Pro format of the S-System (30x45mm), this compact standard zoom lens corresponds to a 24-72mm
lens in 35mm systems. It is the only 3-times zoom lens in the digital medium-format market.
The Leica Vario-Elmar-S 30-90mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH. combines a very versatile range of focal lengths, compact
dimensions and low weight with excellent image quality over the entire focal length range, from infinity to close-up, at
widest aperture and stopped down. Its performance makes the lens a full-fledged alternative to fixed focal-length
lenses. The lens is primarily characterized by its compactness and light-weight; it boosting the photographer's
flexibility, particularly in travel, fashion and photo journalism.
BENEFITS AT A GLANCE
▸ Versatile, compact standard zoom lens
▸ Maximum contrast reproduction, and highest resolution at all apertures over the entire distance range provide crisp
▸ Brilliant, pure color reproduction
▸ Compact and light weight
▸ Excellent stray light suppression for high-contrast images, even in backlight situations
▸ Sealed against dust and splash water
The Leica S-System lens uses a very sophisticated design: 14 lenses in four groups, including nine lenses with partial
anomalous dispersion, three of which are fluoride lenses with particularly low dispersion for reducing chromatic
aberrations. To minimize the monochromatic aberrations, the rear lens uses two aspherical surfaces; at the same time,
an aspherical surface on the front lens element of the second group ensures close-up image quality, and contributes
towards reducing of distortion. Sealed against dust and splash water guarantees outstanding durability and reliability.
Like all Leica S-lenses, the Leica Super-Elmar-S 30-90mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH. guarantees perfect images without digital
correction, thus allowing photographers to focus purely on a creative image composition.
