Product Research


Overview: The Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH lens is a wide-angle prime lens with a black anodized finish. It has the Leica M bayonet mount, and is compatible with the Leica M-10 and M-10R cameras. It is an ideal lens for news gathering and street photography applications. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, and a lens hood.

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 39mm screw-on filters (E39).
