A universal lens with outstanding image quality, even in the near-focusing range. Ideally suited for travel photography, being compact and close focusing. In spite of its high speed, it distinguishes itself by its outstanding sharpness, high contrast and excellent detail resolution, even at full aperture.
This lens works on all Leica R models. If you wish to use it on the original Leicaflex series it has to be modified by a Leica service center.
