Product Description

A compact and less expensive alternative to the 24mm F2.8 Elmarit M, the Leica Elmar-M 24mm F3.8 ASPH provides a wide angle of view in a small, compact form factor. Optical design comprises eight elements in six groups and at medium-to-small apertures, depth of field is effectively infinite, which is very useful for landscapes and street photography. It also makes it excellent for use in combination with the snapshot mode of the Leica M9.
