Leica SL-Lenses

Leica has been developing, designing and manufacturing lenses for over 150 years. Thanks to this expertise, Leica has gained an undisputable reputation for high-quality, reliable and precise lenses that retain their value and capture images and videos in outstanding quality. Our constant pursuit of perfection in optical performance and ease of use is also reflected in the ever-expanding portfolio of SL-System prime- and zoom lenses.

The SL lenses with the L-Mount bayonet deliver unsurpassed image quality for photo and film, with a conveniently compact design. Their sophisticated technologies are always based on a simple, yet fundamental idea: supporting the work of creatives with the highest level of quality. Consistently perfect sharpness and colour reproduction at every focal length, as well as beautiful bokeh, are the hallmarks of all Leica SL lenses. The APO lenses in the SL-System in particular stand for the highest standards of image quality and robustness. The SL lenses without apochromatic correction also impress with their lightweight and compact design. 

The perfect ratio of size to weight is expertly balanced when it comes to the centre of gravity of SL cameras. The outstanding grip and feel, as well as the fast, precise manual and automatic focus are specially designed for versatility in all your photographic and cinematic endeavours. And for finding your own personal way of achieving that unmistakable Leica look.
