Maybe Leica’s best wide angle lens for its rangefinder cameras? | Rating:
“I’ve used the 24mm f2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH lens for nearly two years, having been impressed by its optical excellence for both nature and street photography. If I am photographing a landscape with my M rangefinder cameras, then this is the lens I reach for. But I also find it quite useful for photographing in close quarters some dynamic street photography. Without a doubt this lens is one of the finest new lenses which Leica has been slowly adding to its M rangefinder system over the past fifteen years (Its optical performance is akin to the 28mm f2 Summicron ASPH lens which I also own.);” – by John Kwok

Leica Elmarit-M 24mm f/2.8 ASPH Specifications
This special lens design combines one aspherical lens surface, one lens element with anomalous partial dispersion and two other lens elements made of optical glasses with high indices of refraction to give this compact unit outstanding contrast – and detail rendition – even at full aperture. An accessory brilliant viewfinder is needed for checking the field of view, whereas focusing and exposure metering are performed through the camera’s own viewfinder.
This high-performance lens also makes it possible to work efficiently in cramped quarters. It adds a more dynamic feeling to close-up pictures and it gives landscape photographs significantly more depth.
