Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH Camera Lens Silver



Setting an entirely new standard for digital photography, the silver Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH Camera Lens has been designed by innovative technology specialist Leica, whose cameras captured iconic images such as V-J Day by Alfred Eisenstaedt, Muhammad Ali by Thomas Hoepker and The Flag of Victory by Yevgeny Khaldei.

Designed for use with all Leica cameras with an L bayonet, the wide-angle Elmarit-TL Lens offers beautifully sharp picture quality, whether you’re shooting landscapes, close-ups or documentaries.

A compact pancake lens with fast autofocus, the Elmarit-TL Lens allows you to capture rich-in-detail images and high contrast photos, even in unfavourable lighting conditions.

Weighing just 80 grams, the Elmarit-TL Lens fits easily in your camera bag, ensuring you always stay focused no matter the photographic endeavour.
