LeicaLeica Super Elmar M 21mm lens : Leica adds a new wide-angle lens to its portfolio of short focal length lenses for the Leica M cameras, including the new Leica M9-P. The Leica Super-Elmar-M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH lens sets new standards in imaging performance and is characterised by its particularly compact size and suitability for a wide range of photographic situations. Whether used for photojournalism, architecture or landscape photography, the Leica M 21mm lens provides photographers with an extremely small, light and versatile wide-angle lens, particularly suitable for travelling.

The performance of the Leica Super-Elmar-M 21mm lens is reminiscent of one of the all-time favourite classics amongst Leica M lenses, the Leica Super-Angulon-M 21mm f/3.4. This much-praised lens was an integral part of the Leica M lens portfolio from 1963 to 1980, and made its name and reputation as an ideal tool for available light photography and photojournalism. Even today, the Leica Super-Angulon-M 21mm lens is extremely popular and one of the most sought-after Leica M lenses amongst connoisseurs of fine optics.

The new Leica Super-Elmar-M 21mm lens is a worthy successor, with further improvements over the already outstanding performance of its predecessor. The Leica M 21mm lens reveals its excellent reproduction of detail and superior contrast at maximum aperture. Of particular note are the extremely effective flare characteristics of the Leica Super Elmar M 21mm, which allow the capture of fascinating 'contre-jour' images with absolute clarity and contrast.

Leica M 21mm lens design
The intricate optical design and construction of the lens are responsible for its outstanding sharpness and imaging qualities. The Leica M 21mm lens is constructed with eight lenses in seven groups. At the same time, the use of one lens element with two aspherical surfaces and four lenses with anomalous partial dispersion ensure that aberrations are reduced to an absolute minimum.

Leica Super-Elmar 21mm lens materials
As with all Leica lenses, the Leica Super Elmar M 21mm lens was designed and developed by Leica specialists and represents the perfect combination of optical and technical expertise. Particularly reliable and with enduring value, every Leica lens is manufactured from only the highest quality materials and is assembled with meticulous precision, completely by hand. The combination of cutting-edge technologies and extremely thorough manufacturing processes guarantees consistently excellent quality.

Leica Super-Elmar M 21mm lens hood
The Leica Super-Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH lens is supplied with a high-quality, all-metal lens hood, which should be mounted at all times. The hood not only protects the lens effectively against reduction of contrast by extraneous light, but also against damage and the accumulation of dirt on the front lens element.
