Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.


No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.


Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.


No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

This extremely compact lens, which retracts into the camera housing, stems from the tradition of the legendary Elmar lenses, a major factor in the success of the first Leicas. The classic four-element design has been continually enhanced in its optical and mechanical components over the decades, in line with advances in technology. The current version has been brought up to an uncompromisingly modern standard. The use of high-refraction glasses and the new computer-aided optical design are key factors in its outstanding overall performance. This classic with its 45° coverage angle is closest of all to human eyesight. That's why the perspective appears so natural in the images it produces. Its medium speed, small size, and light weight make this lens a practical choice for many uses.
