  • Leica Camera expands its range of TL lenses with the introduction of the Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/ 2.8 ASPH lens (equivalent 27mm), a lens that provides optical performance that is the best in its class. This is the smallest wide-angle pancake lens in the market for APS-C format and has very fast auto focus due to its compact size and optical design. This compact lens measures only 20.5mm (approximately 0.81 inches) in thickness and weighs only 80g (approximately 2.82 ounces). Made in Japan, the Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH is available in black or silver anodized. This lens can be used with all L-Mount cameras, APS and SL.

    The Leica TL lenses support two great Leica APS-C System Cameras - Leica CL and Leica TL2. With a wide range of lenses in its portfolio, these lenses offer both APS cameras the best image quality and fast performance.
