Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH.

The Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH. is not only one of the smallest lenses in its class, it also by far exceeds the imaging performance of its competitors. With a length of only 20.5 millimetres, a weight of no more than 80 grams and fast autofocus, this wide-angle is the perfect ‘constant companion’ for the compact Leica CL.

L-Mount

A new era of creative freedom

The L-Mount marks the start of a new era of lens compatibility without compromise. Never before has one lens mount standard allowed for an almost limitless array of options in combining different interchangeable lenses with cameras featuring different sensor formats.

With the alliance between Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma, a combined 250 years of experience in the field of lens and camera construction will be consolidated in one platform. For the photographer, this opens up the chance to compile endless variations of camera-lens combinations from the extensive product portfolios of all three manufacturers, and so continually find the best solution for any photographic situation.
