Considered amongst Leica aficionados as one of Leica’s most accomplished wide-angle lenses, the Leica 21mm f3.4 Super-Elmar-M Asph Lens offers a wholly professional and premium construction that can produce stunning, crystal clear and colour-rich images that are free of distortion. This lens sees a sophisticated optical design that is encased in a compact, sleek and lightweight frame. In fact, this lens features a double-sided aspherical element that not only reduces the appearance of spherical aberrations, but it contributes to its 5.3 x 4.3cm size. As an M-mount lens, it is compatible with the likes of Leica’s M10, of which it seamlessly flows with the look and feel, adding to the premium nature of the Leica brand; a quality that is difficult to recreate.

Leica 21mm f3.4 Super-Elmar-M Asph Lens Key Features:

  • Offers incredible image quality, worthy of the Leica name
  • Specifically designed for use with Leica’s M-Mount cameras
  • Impressively compact, sleek and lightweight construction
  • Precision manual focusing design allows close 70cm focus
  • An advanced optical structure made up of 8 elements in 7 groups

    Superb Optics

    This ultra-wide-angle lens is characterised by its compact size which is all the more impressive considering the incredibly high-quality images it can produce. It begs the question, what is inside this lens that allows it to capture this level of detail? Well, this lens, like all Leica lenses, features an advanced and intricate arrangement of optical glass. Here, we see 8 premium elements arranged into distinct 7 groups, including the use of 4 anomalous partial dispersion glass elements that help to reduce the appearance of colour fringing and chromatic aberrations, resulting in improved clarity and colour accuracy. Furthermore, Leica has used a double-sided aspherical element that not only reduces spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness throughout the aperture range, but it is this that also contributes to the compact design.

    The Story behind the M

    The Leica M portfolio is a collection of lenses developed to fulfil the most stringent quality demands for both digital and analogue photography. Their image quality is second-to-none, pairing effortlessly with Leica’s range of compatible high-resolution camera systems. M-mount lenses were first made famous by street photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, and Sebastiao Salgado. Unrivalled in resolution, contrast, structure, tonal depth, and overall performance - the Leica M-mount range consists of a special breed of camera lens.

      The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

      During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

      Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
