M 3,8/18 Elmar Asferico nero, 6 bit code (passo filtri dedicato, codice 13422)
Excellent performance and compact design
The Leica Super-Elmar-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. successfully merges ambitious wide angle photography with the very best of optical quality and compact design. This is achieved thanks to a patented, spacesaving, yet extremely effective lens hood. The lens is a super wide angle lens with an impressive angle of view, especially when mounted on an analogue Leica M model or a full frame digital camera, such as the M9. Its retrofocus-like architecture features eight lens elements of which one boasts two aspherical surfaces to ensure outstanding image quality already at open aperture.
Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm - Intuitive framing
The rangefinder camera coupled with the bright Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm is a high-precision instrument, yet precision focusing isn't always necessary thanks to sufficient depth of field reserves (hyperfocal technique). This solution is ideal for spontaneous and intuitive photography with the Leica M.
- UV/ IR Filter: For Leica M8 models there is a special UV/ IR filter (item no. 13 422), which is mounted between the lens and the lens hood.
- Filter Holder. For compatibility with other filters there is the accessory holder for E77 filters, which is mounted where you would normally secure the lens hood (item no. 14 484).
