Powerful. Even in the lowest light.
Leica lenses are among the best in the world. They have been developed with the aim of fulfilling the most stringent quality demands for digital and film photography. Their performance is unrivaled when it comes to contrast, resolution, and tonal depth. Photographs taken with them possess a natural signature, especially when captured under challenging lighting conditions. What’s more, anyone who has ever held one of these lenses in their hands and experienced the silky-smooth focusing action without any trace of play would never think of buying anything but a Leica lens.
Leica M-Lenses and M-Cameras make a great team. The sensors of the digital M-Cameras are especially optimized for use with M-Lenses. By means of 6-bit coding, modern M-Cameras recognize the lens attached and use its parameters for further image processing. Photographers can therefore rest assured that only the very best is made of each subject they capture.

In the past 100 years, Leica’s engineers have gained superior expertise and experience in the development of high-performance lenses. In combination with state-of-the-art technology, they have created a new generation of lenses designed to give true and outstanding quality to every picture.
