Versatility is a must for street photography which is why we made the Elmarit -M 28 mm f/2.8 ASPH. so compact and flexible. The classical focal length of 28 mm gives a wide, natural field of view to your photographs, making this model so popular among street and reportage photographers. This new high-speed lens is the most compact of Leica M-Lenses. The use of an aspherical element has made it possible to attain top imaging performance with a weight of only 180 g (6 oz). This lens is virtually distortion-free down to the close focus range of 0.7 m and only protrudes slightly into the viewfinder field of M-Cameras.
