Buy Leica APO Vario Elmarit SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4 Lens


Leica's APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4 Lens is designed for APS-C and full-frame mirrorless cameras with L-mounts. Its complex 23-element, 17-group optical design incorporates seven anomalous partial dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and provide colour accuracy that is free from fringing. For shallow depth of field techniques, the f/2.8-4 aperture gives greater control over the focus position when used in a variety of lighting conditions. In addition to covering a broad range of focal lengths, this well-corrected tele zoom lens maintains high levels of sharpness and clarity throughout its long reach. Its fast focusing and zooming capabilities complement the optical features of this 90-280mm lens.

In order to ensure focusing accuracy and speed throughout both zooming and focusing ranges, the optical design is broken into seven distinct moving groups, with two dedicated focusing elements that are driven by linear steps motors. As well as improving sharpness, an optical image stabilization system compensates for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake in difficult lighting conditions to allow handheld shooting. A rotating tripod collar incorporating firm detents at 90-degree positions enhances stability when working from a tripod. Furthermore, this lens comes with Leica's AquaDura hydrophobic coating on the front and rear elements to prevent moisture and smudging, as well as a full dust and water-sealed design to ensure its protection during use in inclement weather.
