The Leica 16-18-21mm f/4 Tri-Elmar-M ASPH w/ Viewfinder

With its impressive angle of view of 107°, the Tri-Elmar conquers 16mm super-wide-angle photography in perfect Leica M style. Due to the minimal distortion and barely perceptible field curvature, it can be recommended for highly demanding architecture photography even at the 16mm setting. The ultra compact shape is achieved by two aspherical elements. A new design of the interior focusing significantly enhances the quality in the close-focus range through an adaption of the floating element principle. Brilliant field depth can therefore be used from a distance of 0.33m for hyperfocal photography.

This lens has been updated with the "6-bit" coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply "final stage," software-based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made).

Included with the lens is the Universal Wide-Angle Viewfinder. The viewfinder enables precise cropping of the subject with the Tri-Elmar 16-18-21mm f/4 on the M7, MP, and M8. For the M8, the focal-length extension factor of 1.33x has to be considered, so in this case the bright-line frames for 21, 24 or 28mm are selected.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
