Lens Description

The Leica TL Vario-Elmar 18-56mm F/3.5-5.6 ASPH is a wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with APS-C (1.5X) sensors. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 18mm to 56mm focal range.It provides the same field of view as a 27mm to 84mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This zoom is capable of focusing down to 30cm from the imaging plane. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Leica to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Leica L. Follow this link to see all current compatible digital cameras: Leica L mount cameras with APS-C (1.5X) or larger sensor.
