Excellent Leica M Wide Angle Lens - Does Not Disappoint!

mark5419, Ebay
15 June 2014
  • Summary: This Leica M 28mm f/2.8 Asph MF lens is super sharp, excellent contrast and color, light weight, and easy to focus with the small lens hood. This lens will exceed your expectations for landscape, travel, photojournalism and street photography. This lens is razor sharp from f/2.8 and gets even better down to f/8. Even at f/11 to f/16 this lens does excellent. I have found there is no issue with flare, coma, no visible distortion and very minimal vignetting.

Elmarit-M

  • Excerpt: I have an M6 and at this point I have only been using the less expensive Voightlander glass. On a whim I busted out the credit card and bought this and the 35 (crazy I know). The short summary is I have since sold all my Voigt glass and I couldn't be happier. The voightlander glass is excellent but the LEICA Elmarit oh man even though its one of Leica's cheaper lenses it is superb. Don't get caught up in the idea it is one of their least expensive lenses.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Image Quality, Investment, Lightweight, Quality build, Reliable, Sound Mechanics, Warrenty
  • Cons: Too Awesome

Insanely sharp

  • Excerpt: Absolutely pin sharp lens, from corner to corner.Great compact size. The only negatives are from the removable lens hood - it intrudes into the viewfinder image and it makes access to the aperture ring slightly awkward.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Sharp And Contrasty
  • Cons: Lens Hood Blocks Finder

  • Summary: Everyone thinks that a good Leica Lense has to come from Germany. not so! This one was made in Canada, and the optics are sharp, and this lense has great contrast as well.

Leica Elmarit-M 28 ASPH lens

tedsell58, Ebay
16 November 2010
  • Summary: Great lens, very sharp, small and beautiful. Handles great with tab for focussing. Build quality does not get any better. I have several leica lenses and they are all incredible. This one is new technology, but the 40 year old ones are spectacular as well.

Perfect addition to the 50 cron

alexeyru, Ebay

  • Summary: This is true Leica product - compact, sharp and well built. 28 mm makes it compatible with the viewfinder lines on M9, compact size makes it perfect travel companion, and optical characteristics leave no upside potential for other comparable lenses. And 2.8 is more than enough for digital m9. Highly recommended if you look for a wide angle addition to your base 50 mm lens.

Leica R 28mm f2.8

  • Summary: Do your research before buying your lens. The Leica R 28mm 4th version is known to be the final and best designed lens in this focal length pre aspherical. In my opinion the 4th version R28mm out performs the asph cousin.

Leica 28/2.8 Asp

richjepsen, Ebay
27 May 2009
  • Summary: Lens is well built but lacks the expensive feel of older Mandler optics. The physical length of the lens is a tad shorter than a 40mm Cron; very small. The rectangular hood arrangement is similar to current lenses and comes with a rectangular soft rubber cap. Viewing thruogh the finder the lens and hood cover the bottom 15% of the finder. Not a real issue.

User Review

  • Summary: i have been using it for less than 1 month, i shoot with an M8 . i use the 35/1.4 asph as well and used the 50/1.4 asph+ the 75/2.5. i like this tiny lense very much as it is sharp ,flare &distorsion free and is very light ( 180 gr) only, it does not block the viewfinder the only thing i miss sometimes is speed so whenever needed i switch to the 35/1.4 some people complain about its price-i think it is cheep compared to the benefits and quality of this lovely baby
  • Pros: light, sharp, flare free, distortion free ( even at 2.8)
  • Cons: not fast enough

Superb wideangle for landscapes

jrust, Adorama
4 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Excellent for landscape photography or other areas where a wide angle with a wide depth of field are required. Light weight ( but solid construction) make it ideal for a trek through the woods. Not a bargain by any means, but a decent lens that satisfies 50% of my photographic needs.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
