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.

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.
