About the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8

One for all

Leica's Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens is a great all-around choice.

Leica Vario Elmarit SL 24-70mm ASPH Lens

A perfect lens to bring if you're only bringing one.

One for all

Leica's Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens is a great all-around choice. With its extensive focal range and consistent maximum aperture of f/2.8 available through its full zoom range, it's flexible enough to capture images on the street, in the field, or in the studio — whether you're shooting photos or video. 

The 19 elements in 15 groups deliver excellent light-gathering capability, razor sharp focus, and creamy bokeh (background blur) — hallmarks of the Leica look.

Lightweight and durable

The lens is a perfect fit for Leica's SL2 and SL2-S, and makes use of the in-body image stabilzation on those models. (The lens itself has no optical image stabilization built into its construction, which makes it lightweight and comfortable to use.) The metal design is weather-sealed for outdoor use.

    Product Research

    Features

    Overview: The Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH lens is a wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom lens with a black anodized finish. It has the Leica L bayonet mount, and is perfectly matched to the state-of-the-art SL-System with its fast autofocus performance and detailed images. It is an ideal lens for video and still photography applications across the board. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, and a lens hood.

    Dual Syncro Drive™: Vario-Elmarit-SL lenses feature a fast, precise, and nearly silent autofocus system. With two powerful stepping motors, the Dual Syncro Drive™ system, the focusing lens elements travel the entire focusing range in fractions of a second. The two autonomous focusing units move in perfect synchronization while the positioning data is analyzed at a very high sampling rate and passed on to the camera.

    Depth of Field: Leica SL lenses do not come with an aperture settings ring, and no depth-of-field scale is provided. Instead, the top display of the camera shows the near and far focal length limits of the depth-of-field alongside the set distance.

    Lens Construction: The Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH has an optical system constructed of 19 lens elements in 15 groups, including six aspherical surfaces. These aspherical elements correct monochromatic aberration, while nine elements manufactured from specially formulated, high-quality glass types ensure chromatic correction throughout the entire focusing range.

    Lens Hood: Included with the lens is a lens hood that fits with a bayonet-style fitting on the front of the lens. When not in use, it can be reverse-mounted to the lens for storage. The lens hood blocks stray light from entering the lens, effecting contrast, and also protects the front lens against damage, weather, or accidental fingerprint marks.

    Filters: The lens is compatible with 82mm screw filters (E82).

    Compatibility: This Leica L-mount lens is perfectly matched to Leica SL mirrorless full-frame cameras, such as the SL-2 and SL-2S. You can also use the lens on other Leica L-mount cameras, such as the TL2 and the CL. L-mount lenses can also be used on select Panasonic and SIGMA cameras, according to the L-Mount Alliance.
