The new Leica 21mm 3.4 Super-Elmar-M ASPH is a compact 21mm lens with outstanding performance, great color rendition, and something harder to quantify— a certain type of finesse that I’ll say makes this a must-have lens for Leica M.
Here are a few shots, taken high in the White Mountains of California. It is now night as I write this at 12° F, and I am heading to lower elevations and other terrain, because a new storm is due tomorrow.
I’ll be covering the Leica 21mm f/3.4 Super-Elmar-M ASPH extensively in my Leica Guide when I return from my trip.

Flare resistance is outstanding, and contrast under adverse conditions is impressive.
The Leica 21mm f/3.4 Super-Elmar-M has outstanding color saturation— no saturation added to this image, or to any others shown here.
