Leica Apo-Telyt-R 280 mm f/4 Telephoto Lens

This apochromatically corrected lens with internal focusing is distortion-free, and delivers maximum resolution throughout the aperture range, providing accurate colors and optimum contrast - even at maximum aperture.

Thanks to its rubberized lens hood, it is protected against damage from knocks and jolts, and together with the tripod attachment it makes an ideal lens for animal and landscape photography.

Last but not least, it is also capable of shooting over long distances, delivering close up views of distant subjects.

Thanks to its compact size, it is easy to shoot handheld with this lens. Its focusing range down to 1.7 meters (5ft 7in) permits a reproduction ratio of 1:5.

The LEICA MACRO-ADAPTER-R turns it into a fully functional macro lens.

In combination with the LEICA APO-EXTENDER-R 1.4x and 2x, it becomes, repectively a high-performance 5.6/400 mm and 8.0/560 mm lens. With the LEICA APO-EXTENDER-R 2x a magnification ratio of 1:2 can be attained.
