Leica Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH Reviews

Luminous-landscape reviews the Leica Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH and writes;
“Image quality is excellent; having three focal lengths in one adds versatility; and build quality is as good as it gets. It is rangefinder coupled, and 8 bit coded. What it gives up in aperture to the Distagon it makes up for in lower weight and smaller size. All of this makes the 16-18-21mm Tri-Elmar the Goldilocks of ultra-wide lenses for the Leica M8.”

Popphoto reviews the Leica Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH and writes;
“SQF data showed Excellent contrast and sharpness at all three focal lengths. Distortion was also well controlled — in the Visible range at 16mm (0.33% barrel), and Slight at 18mm and 21mm (0.24% and 0.13% barrel distortion, respectively). Light falloff left the corners at f/5.6 at all three focal lengths, a slightly above-average performance for the ultrawide class.”

Features & Specifications

Leica Tri-Elmar-M 16-18-21mm f/4 ASPH Specifications

With its impressive angle of view of 107°, this Tri-Elmar conquers 16 mm super wide-angle photography in perfect Leica M style. Due to the minimal distortion and barely perceptible field curvature, it can be recommended for highly demanding architecture photography even at the 16 mm setting. Used on the digital M8, it produces the image effect of a 21 – 28 mm lens, still enabling extreme wide-angle views. The ultra compact shape is achieved by two aspherical elements. A new design of the interior focusing significantly enhances the quality in the close-focus range through an adaption of the floating element principle. Brilliant field depth can therefore be used from a distance of 0.33 m for hyperfocal photography. Save money by buying the lens in a set together with the Universal Wide-angle Viewfinder M.
