Aperture Series: Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH — Cottonwood
This series shows the Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH behavior from f/4 - f/16 in 1/2 stop increments.
Like its sibling, the 21/3.4 Super-Elmar-M ASPH, the 24/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH shows remarkably little variation in optical performance across the aperture range, showing that the 24/3.8 Elmar-M is an exceptionally high performance lens. The two lenses are nearly twins in terms of optical performance, so choose for non-optical reasons.
