A new prime lens is available for the Leica T camera system – the Leica APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 mm f/2.8 Asph. This macro lens is considered to be the reference lens in the APS-C segment. It delivers macro exposures with a reproduction ratio of 1:1 and impresses with best imaging performance.
With this new addition, the lens portfolio of the Leica T camera system now offers a total of six lenses. Currently available are three prime lenses and three zoom lenses that together offer a range of focal lengths for every photographic situation. The two fast prime lenses, the Leica Summicron-TL 23 mm f/2 Asph. and the Summilux-TL 35 mm f/1.4 Asph., are classic focal lengths for reportage photography. The APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 mm f/2.8 Asph. complements them ideally as a lens for finely detailed close-up photography.
The three compact zoom lenses, the Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-TL 11–23 mm f/3.5–4.5 Asph., Vario-Elmar-TL 18–56 mm f/3.5–5.6 Asph., and APO-Vario-Elmar-TL 55–135 mm f/3.5–4.5 Asph., cover an entire range of focal lengths equivalent to 17 to 200 mm in 35 mm format and deliver outstanding images with rich contrast from corner to corner of the frame.
As the Leica T and the new Leica SL share the same L bayonet mount, this will be indicated by the designation ‘TL’ for all new lenses manufactured for the Leica T camera system. Thanks to the flexibility offered by the TL-Lenses for a wide range of applications on cameras with the L-Bayonet, Leica once again underlines the company’s fundamental principle of system-compatibility and sustainability, and thus offers users access to an even more diverse portfolio of Leica products.
