Leica S with the 30-90mm f/3.5-5.6 Vario-Elmar-S ASPH @ 30mm: Aperture Series 'Rushing Water'

Get Leica 30-90mm at B&H Photo.

The 30-90mm is a lens I hear about from some Leica S shooters as one that works great as an all-arounder and is good for travel, being about the same size as its fixed focal length siblings.

The CCD sensor in the Leica S is lovely, but this example shows the main weakness with the 30-90mm and ought to be instructive to every prospective user of the Leica 30-90mm. For myself, I’d find a kit consisting of the Leica 24mm f/3.5 Super-Elmar-S ASPH and the 30mm and 45mm and 100mm primes more satisfying—now that I’ve evaluated the 30-90mm in more detail. But 4 primes is a heavy load, and so the 30-90mm has its place.

Includes images up to 24 megapixels and large crops across the f/3.5 - f/16 aperture range.

The Leica S CCD sensor is something special. I’m interested in doing more work on the S system. If an S showed up on loan for 3-5 months that would certainly help as I could interleave coverage with my other work.
