Looking for a hard to get Leica lens? We have a very good selection of Leica lenses in stock. Check out this post to see which sought-after lenses are available.
We have in stock a black Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH. With its impressive angle of view of 107°, minimal distortion and barely perceptible field curvature, it can be recommended for highly demanding architecture photography even at the 16 mm setting. The ultra compact shape is achieved by incorporating two aspherical elements. The internal focusing significantly enhances the quality in the close-focus range through an adoption of the floating element technology. Extreme field depth can be achieved from a distance of 1 foot to ∞ by using the hyper-focal technique.
Also available is a Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH. This versatile all-around lens delivers phenomenal overall image quality, high contrast and exemplary resolution over its entire aperture range, even wide open. By closing the aperture down only 2 stops to f/4, it delivers maximum resolution and contrast that is unsurpassed. It also impresses by being virtually distortion-free. The word “standard” is particularly fitting for this astoundingly compact wide-angle jewel. It turns any Leica M camera into a highly compact and elegant unit, allowing the photographer to shoot discreetly, without drawing attention.
The Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. It is the successor to the famous Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/1 ASPH., which was added to the product range in 1975. Thanks to state-of-the-art optics and mechanical technologies, Leica has succeeded in achieving substantial improvements over the previous model. With nearly identical dimensions, a noticeable increase in lens speed has been achieved. The extremely shallow depth of field at open aperture produces portraits and detailed studies of unequalled aesthetic effect. Even when just slightly stopped down, the result is outstanding image quality, comparable to the Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH, which is considered the best standard lens ever produced. When used in available light photography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. Even the light from one candle can be sufficient for handheld photography. A “floating element” retains high image quality even in the close-up range.
The Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH, the best 50mm f/1.4, ever. A combination of the know-how of Leica’s engineers and the latest developments in manufacturing technology has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It delivers high-contrast images, with high-resolution detail, even at its widest aperture, and down to its minimum focusing distance. This is made possible by a number of factors including the use of a floating element, special glass types with unique refraction properties, and elements with aspherical surfaces. The properties of this lens not only make it ideal for any photo situation demanding a handy all-rounder with the natural image angle of the 50 mm standard focal length, but also for available light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography – usually the preserve of much larger formats. Its wide-ranging versatility also makes it a top choice in assembling a Leica M lens outfit.
The compact Leica Apo-Summicron-M 75mm f/2 ASPH. harnesses all the technical possibilities of today’s high-performance optics to achieve a combination of high-speed and remarkable imaging quality. It features aspherical surfaces, special glass types with partial anomalous dispersion and floating elements. It is the ideal lens on either an analog or digital Leica rangefinder camera delivering intimate views of scenes, nature, landscapes and people, irrespective of whether they are at infinity or at the close-focus range of the lens. With resolving power well above that of the best colour photo films, it is also a first-rate documentary tool.
Leica Macro Set M. This unique set includes the Leica Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 (black anodized), the Macro-Adapter-M for M 90mm f/4 and the M Anglefinder. With the Leica Macro-Adapter-M this lens permits macro shots to a magnification of 1:3. This is a great set up for shooting in the macro mode, as when shooting flowers, insects and other close-up subjects. Without the adapter, it serves as a compact 90mm telephoto lens.
Leica lenses continue to be somewhat difficult to come by, so give us a call or visit our website if you are interested in any of these lenses.
