  • The Leica Super-Elmar-S 24 mm f/3.5 ASPH. offers Leica S-Photographers a true super-wide-angle lens with anŒæangle of view equivalent to that of a 19 mm in 35 mm photography. With a diagonal angle of view of 96.6ŒÁ, it stronglyŒæemphasizes perspectives and opens up any number of creative opportunities in areas such as architectural,Œælandscape or interior photography.

    Of the 12 elements in ten groups, five are manufactured from glasses with anomalous partial dispersion, and ofξthese, three are fluoride lenses for the correction of chromatic aberrations. Two aspherical lenses located directlyξbehind the iris and the aspherical surface of the front lens minimize monochromatic aberrations. To ensureξconsistent performance at all distances, only the middle, three-element group is used for focusing, whereby one ofξits lenses moves independently as a floating element.

    This extremely elaborate construction is reflected in an unusually high degree of correction. The Leica Super-Elmar-S 24 mm f/3.5 ASPH. has been optimized for maximum performance and shows very high resolutionξand contrast rendition from its initial aperture onward at all focusing distances.

    Its extremely high imagingξperformance cannot be noticeably improved by stopping down. Particularly remarkable in view of its extreme angleξof view and potential uses in architectural photography is that the Super-Elmar-S 24 mm f/3.5 ASPH. is almostξcompletely free from distortion and therefore guarantees optimum results with an absolute minimum of post processingξeffort.
