LEICA ELMARIT-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH.

 

Natural perspective at the highest level


The angle of view corresponds to that of the classic 35 mm focal length for 35 mm photography and, with its moderate wide-angle and true-to-life perspectives, make it outstanding for landscapes and architectural photography as well as for studio work. Its high speed of f/2.8 makes it optimal for available light photography and the judicious use of selective focus.

The lens portfolio for the Leica S medium format system now comprises nine Leica S lenses (six with CS variants) with focal lengths from 24 mm - 180 mm.

A CLASSIC IN ABSOLUTE PERFECTION

The angle of view of the Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. (CS) corresponds to that of the classic 35 mm focal length for 35 mm photography and, with its moderate wide-angle coverage and true-to-life perspectives, is outstanding for landscapes and architectural photography as well as for studio work.
Its extremely complex formula and construction, designed to deliver maximum contrast at maximum aperture and at its shortest focusing distance, ensures that it is practically free of aberrations – monochromatic aberration is virtually nonexistent and chromatic aberrations are reduced to an absolute minimum. The Leica Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH. (CS) is also available with an integrated central shutter.

CONSTRUCTIONAL DETAILS

Three of the twelve lens elements are manufactured using specialized glass with anomalous partial dispersion that minimizes chromatic aberration, and two others of high-refractive-index glass with exceptionally low dispersion. In addition to these, one aspherical surface is employed for the minimization of monochromatic aberrations. Reargroup focusing guarantees consistently outstanding imaging performance from infinity to the closest focusing distance.
