The extremely wide viewing angle and the clarity of perspective offered by this compact ultra-wide-angle lens make it outstandingly well suited for landscape and architectural work, as well as shooting in tight spaces.

Dynamic perspectives with a dominant foreground are attained by the amazingly wide 111° image angle diagonal and the ability to focus down 18 cm (7 in) is both impressive and very useful.

The optical design, with internal focusing, consists of 13 individual lens elements in 10 groups, one of which has an aspherical surface.

The Super-Elmarit provides crisp imaging, is insensitive to flare, and delivers top-quality pictures even wide open.

Its contrast and resolution are extremely high, so the finest details are shaprly rendered resolution all the way to the edges of the frame. The built-in filter wheel offers 4 filter choices.
