With its universal focal range, consistently high aperture and closest focusing distance of just 18 cm at a focal length of 24mm, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. is suitable for video and still photography applications across the board. It is a perfect choice for photographers with a preference for travelling light.
One for all
In still photography as well as video recordings, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. delivers a consistently high speed of f/2.8 at every focal length from the wide angle to the short telephoto end. Thanks to its great versatility and compact, ergonomic construction, the lens enables a fast response to any shooting scenario without the need to change lenses.
The elaborate optical construction of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH., featuring six aspherical surfaces, guarantees excellent imaging performance throughout the entire zoom range. The eleven-bladed aperture and perfect chromatic correction ensure an especially harmonious bokeh and endless compositional possibilities.
With a body and lens hood made entirely of metal, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. is a robust companion for any situation. Weather-sealing ensures that the lens is well protected against water spray and dust – so that even harsh environmental conditions will not hamper your photography or video project.
Quiet, fast and precise: these are the attributes that characterise the autofocus of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. The fast stepper motor moves only a single, very light-weight lens element – resulting in a virtually lag-free autofocus operation. This not only applies when the lens is mounted on a Leica SL, SL2 or SL2-S, but also in combination with any other camera equipped with an L-Mount bayonet.
