Pay attention to details – just like you do
No matter whether you’re shooting landscapes, documentaries or portraits, the Leica Vario-Elmar-T, the all-round lens for the Leica T Camera System, lets you capture rich-in-detail, high-contrast photos that are sharp from edge to edge and corner to corner, even in unfavourable light. This compact standard zoom covers a range of focal lengths from 28 to 85 mm and guarantees pictures with the wonderful signature Leica bokeh.
