Group portraits, landscapes, and architecture: Whenever the scene demands a wider view, the Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH. is the perfect wide-angle lens for capturing it all. With a range of focal lengths from 16 to 35 mm, this high-performance lens expands the spectrum of the existing portfolio of SL zoom lenses into the super wide-angle range.
With the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH., and the APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90–280 f/2.8–4 ASPH., the SL portfolio of zoom lenses covers a range of focal lengths from 16 to 280mm. Thus the three zoom lenses offer a spectrum of focal lengths that fulfill the needs of all styles of photography.
Together with exceptional imaging performance expected from a Leica at all focus distances and apertures, the high-performance lens offers simultaneously fast and nearly silent autofocus. To achieve this, only one very lightweight lens element is moved for focusing. A specially developed focus drive comprising a stepping motor and linear positioning enables very fast, almost-silent, and precise focusing without changing the overall length of the lens barrel.
As is the case with all other components of the Leica SL-System, the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH. is designed and constructed to meet the special demands of professional photography. Made in Germany, the rugged construction of this lens and its AquaDura® lens coating make it ideal for use in even the most difficult conditions. Improved high-quality coatings ensure optimum suppression of reflections and stray light within the optical system, for shooting in even the harshest lighting.
