The Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH Lens spans a popular and versatile range of focal lengths and is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras. It ranges from wide-angle to portrait-length, and provides excellent sharpness across all f-stops and focus distances.
Three aspherical elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for notable image sharpness and clarity. The lens's f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions while offering precise control over focus position for working with shallow depth of field techniques, and a quiet and precise autofocus motor benefits both stills and video capture.
Making the lens well-suited for nearly any photographic application, the lens offers lighter weight thanks to the omission of OIS, and this compact workhorse is constructed with a metal body and weather-sealing for durability and protection in harsh environments and inclement weather conditions.
The elaborate lens design, comprising 19 elements in 15 groups, ensures outstanding optical performance. A total of three elements feature aspherical surfaces on both sides. Nine specialist-glass elements with anomalous partial dispersion provide excellent chromatic correction across the entire focal range. The internal focus is based on a single, lightweight lens element, and utilises a quiet stepper motor to deliver fast and precise autofocus. With its robust metal body and ingress protection against water spray and dust, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. can even be used in harsh environmental conditions.
