The Leica 18mm f/3.8 Super-Elmar-M ASPH

The Leica 18mm f/3.8 Super-Elmar-M is a relatively compact super-wide-angle lens. Key features include:

Super-Wide-Angle Prime. The Leica 18mm f/3.8 Super-Elmar-M’s aspherical element gives you high resolving power with wonderful image quality. While the f/3.8 aperture doesn’t allow for extreme low-light shooting, it does provide simple focusing due to its large depth of field.

Great Corner Sharpness. Despite being an 18mm, this lens has very little optical distortion, making it a great option for architectural and landscape photography. The retro-focus design allows for great corner sharpness at all apertures while limiting color shift.

Manual-Focusing Design. The 18mm f/3.8’s manual-focusing design gives you smooth, precise control over focus placement and a 2.3-foot minimum focusing distance.

6-Bit Coding. The 18mm f/3.8 has Leica’s 6-bit coding, which allows the M9/M-E to correct for vignetting.

Please note: To get the most out of this lens, we suggest using an external viewfinder to aid in shot composition.

Are we out of stock?

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.
