Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14–24 f/2.8 ASPH.
With the Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14–24 f/2.8 ASPH., Leica offers a focal length of 14 mm for the SL-System for the first time. With its consistently high aperture ratio of f/2.8 over the entire zoom range, impressive panoramas and videos of the highest quality and brilliance are created. The very wide diagonal viewing angle of up to 114 degrees leads to unavoidable distortions and aberrations in ultra wide-angle lenses, which are excellently compensated by the elaborate optical construction of the Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14–24 f/2.8 ASPH. Thus, subjects are sharp right into the corners at any aperture and focal length. Inside the new Vario lens, 18 lenses in 13 groups compensate for chromatic aberrations and three aspherical lenses ensure the best image and video quality. The focal length range of 14 to 24 mm makes this versatile ultra wide-angle zoom lens an excellent tool for numerous photographic applications: from architecture and interior shots to reportages close to the action right up to astro and landscape photography.
In the new zoom lens, unwanted stray light is prevented by a sophisticated multi-coating of the glass surfaces and a fixed metal lens hood. The latter also serves as a robust protection for the strongly curved front lens. The Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14–24 f/2.8 ASPH. is equipped with a special filter holder on the side of the bayonet mount. In combination with the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH., this new ultra wide-angle zoom lens covers a wide focal length range and ensures comparatively light luggage with full flexibility.
Fast, quiet autofocus and a consistently high aperture, the Super-Vario-Elmarit-SL 14-24mm f/2.8 ASPH. Lens from Leica delivers excellent performance for wide-angle applications such as landscape, reportage, interior, and astro photography. Three aspherical elements within the lens reduce various optical aberrations and allow the lens to focus light more effectively, thus creating accurate, reliable photo and video content.
Dual Synchro Drive AF
The autofocus system featured in Leica Summicron-SL lenses provides fast and silent focusing performance from 0.28m to infinity. With the combination of a constant aperture of f/2.8 and Leica’s Dual Synchro Drive AF, this lens creates visually stunning video and panoramas.
Prevent Stray Light
Sophisticated multi-layer and aqua-dura coatings on the glass surfaces coupled with a fixed metal lens hood help prevent unwanted stray light from entering the lens. Additionally, the lens’s aluminum all-metal housing is anodized and protects against dust and moisture.
