Leica Apo-Macro-Elmarit-R 100 mm f/2.8 Lens

Its high sharpness and contrast, low light falloff and distortion are exemplary at all distances from maximum aperture on down. The range of possible applications of the lens extends far beyond macro photography. It also enables brilliant results in the typical applications for medium-range telephoto lenses. When combined with the LEICA ELPRO 1:2-1:1 specially designed for this lens, macro photos up to a 1:1 magnification can be achieved.
