As a serious crowd favourite amongst architectural photographers and urban explorers, the Leica 28mm f2.8 Elmarit-M Asph Lens stands as a compact, unobtrusive, and high-functioning wide-angle prime. This lens features an 8-element, 6-group optical construction consisting of one aspherical element to actively reduce spherical aberrations and distortions. In essence, this ensures clean, sharp, and colour-accurate image-quality that is consistent throughout the full aperture and focusing ranges. Adhering to Leica’s tried-and-tested manual focus designation, this 28mm f2.8 lens promises tactile and precise control for on-location shooting. As the lens protrudes just 30.7cm, it is barely visible within the viewfinder field of your favourite M cameras. This guarantees a clear, fresh, and uncluttered composition; ideal for a wide array of creative applications and photography disciplines.

    Edge-to-Edge Clarity and Contrast

    As a high-functioning yet compact wide-angle prime, the Leica 28mm f2.8 is a real favourite amongst architectural photographers, street photographers, and urban explorers. This is because it is incredibly compact, unobtrusive, and capable of capturing incredibly sharp images. Boasting such superb optics, this lens consists of an 8-element, 6-group internal construction. This includes one aspherical element to actively reduce spherical aberrations and distortions to increase overall sharpness and clarity. The aspherical element further contributes to this Leica 28mm f2.8 lens being so slight and compact. To further improve your image-capturing experience, this lens is also threaded to accept 39mm-diameter filters on the front of the lens and comes equipped with a removable lens hood.

    The Story of the M-Mount Range

    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.
