Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH Review

November 21, 2017 | Amy Davies |


Leica is continuing to expand its line up of TL mount lenses, now featuring lenses which cover a focal length starting from 11mm all the way up to 135mm. The Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH is the ideal lens for those who want a light and compact walk around lens. With a focal length close to 30mm, it makes for a good focal length for a variety of different subjects, including landscapes, street, and even environmental type portraits. 

Sharpness is good throughout the aperture range, while autofocusing is quick and quiet, again making it an ideal choice for street type photography. All in all, if you’re looking for a small and light lens for Leica TL mount cameras - the new Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 ASPH comes highly recommended.
