A superior macro lens brings tiny worlds into view.
45mm F2.8 (35mm camera equivalent: 90mm)
Designed and manufactured to meet Leica’s stringent performance standards, this high-quality macro lens minimizes distortion, ghosts, flaring and decreased peripheral resolution. With 14 elements in 10 groups, including one aspherical lens and one ED lens, it provides stable contrast and high resolution all the way from 1:1 macro (35mm camera equivalent: 2x) to infinity. The floating Inner Focus system makes use of three groups of lenses, which means that the elaborate focusing, so essential to a macro lens, is both faster and quieter. MEGA O.I.S. (optical image stabilising) is provided to correct any blurring caused by hand shake, ensuring clear, sharp images with everything from macro and medium-telephoto portraits, to wide landscapes and long telephoto shots.
This macro lens does much more than make small things bigger. Not limited to beautiful soft focusing, it lets you bring the entire frame – from corner to corner – into sharp focus, giving you the freedom to create a wide variety of compositions, from portraits and telephoto shots, to landscapes, making this lens a true all-round performer.
