Leica 16-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Elmarit-SL ASPH: Severe Flare Issues on Panasonic S1R

See my L-mount mirrorless wishlist and Leica M wishlist.

In field work I noted some unusual and highly destructive flare behavior with the Leica 16-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Elmarit-SL ASPH. Accordingly, I assessed the Leica 16-35 across the focal length range on the Panasonic S1R.

More than ordinary flare is at issue.

This piece is essential reading for anyone considering the Leica 16-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Elmarit-SL ASP—I would say worth the subscription price by itself for anyone considering the 16-35—make any buying decision after reading.

In diglloyd L-Mount Mirrorless:

Lens Flare for Leica 16-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Super-Vario-Elmar-SL ASPH (Panasonic S1R)

Includes pairs of images at various focal lengths, shaded to block sunlight versus unshaded. Each pair can be toggled for comparison. Lens hood in use for all.

I can’t be certain that my analysis will apply to all L-Mount cameras, but since they all share the same flange focal distance and all digital sensors are reflective, it seems likely.

More than ordinary flare
