The Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 ASPH. is distinguished by its handy dimensions, very high image quality and a wide image angle. It is suitable for everything from daytime reportage to landscape and travel photography. Furthermore, it is excellent for use in combination with the snapshot mode of the Leica M.
Contrast and detail rendition are excellent even at its maximum aperture of 3.8. Stopped down to
medium apertures, the depth of field is so great that wide-ranging vistas will be in focus from close distances to infinity. All these properties make it an outstanding choice when used in combination with the Leica M in snapshot mode.
