Leica Medium Format Lenses
Leica S-lenses are designed to deliver optimum quality for the high resolution Leica S medium format camera system and are available as prime or as S-Vario models (variable focal lengths). Many models are available as a central leaf shutter variant for high speed flash sync. As with all Leica camera equipment these optics are also designed and manufactured in Germany with technical expertise to deliver the highest possible performance. Models are able to resolve the high resolution which the medium format system is capable of capturing and excel in their natural colour, sharp detail and pleasing bokeh.
Prime lenses are currently available between 24mm and 180mm. In 35mm format this translates into 19mm to 144mm (0.8 crop factor), providing the majority of options in prime focal lengths as required by S system photographers working in fashion, portrait, architecture and landscape. Optics feature aspherical designs, with anomalous partial dispersion or high refractive elements for the ultimate rendering quality. AF lenses include an integrated processor for lens control and some options are available with a central leaf shutter. The central shutter provides flash syncing at the fastest shutter speed of 1/1000th, ideal for professional studio lighting use.
The zoom lenses in the medium format range are designed with a number of advanced optics including aspherical, partial and low dispersion elements to deliver quality throughout the zoom range . Weather and dust sealing allow photographers to work outdoors, capturing fast moving subjects, sports and closer wildlife.
Whichever model is chosen, from macro to telephoto, image performance is outstanding as one would expect. High resolution, well controlled distortion, accurate colour and optimal quality are apparent even when apertures are wide open.
