The LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. will help you capture the
expansiveness of space like few other tools. Nominally larger than a
standard lens, it boasts an extreme angle of view of up to 100 degrees
and reaches far into the field of super wide angle lenses, at the same
time guaranteeing the outstanding lens qualities that are typical for
LEICA. The LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. broadens the horizon
not only in architecture and landscape photography but in many other
areas as well.
Excellent performance and compact design
The LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. successfully merges ambitious
wide angle photography with the very best of optical quality and compact
design. This is achieved thanks to a patented, spacesaving, yet
extremely effective lens hood. The lens corresponds to a universal 24 mm
wide angle lens when mounted on a LEICA M8 model and a super wide angle
lens with an impressive angle of view when mounted on an analogue Leica
M model. Its retrofocus-like architecture features eight lens elements
of which one boasts two aspherical surfaces to ensure outstanding image
quality already at open aperture.
New: Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm - Intuitive framing
The rangefinder camera coupled with the bright Mirror Viewfinder M 18 mm is a high-precision instrument, yet precision focusing isn’t always necessary thanks to sufficient depth of field reserves (hyperfocal technique). This solution is ideal for spontaneous and intuitive photography with the Leica M.
* UV/ IR Filter: For LEICA M8 models there is a special UV/ IR filter (item no. 13 422), which is mounted between the lens and the lens hood.
* Filter Holder. For compatibility with other filters there is the accessory holder for E77 filters, which is mounted where you would normally secure the lens hood (item no. 14 484).
What our members say
Why I like the Societies: As Iím pretty new to it I think the main reason to join was to feel part of a community of like-minded people. Also the ability to use the mentor me programme and enter some competitions. Iím looking forward to the forum and hoping it can answer some of the problems I come up against - Rossie B

Photo Quote: Of course, there will always be those who look only at technicque, who ask "how," while others of a more curious nature will ask "why." Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information. - Man Ray
