Leica 30mm f/2.8 Elmarit-S ASPH

Leica 30mm f/2.8 Elmarit-S ASPH

The Leica 30mm f/2.5 Summarit-S ASPH is widest lens for the S2 as of November 2011, equivalent in field of view to a 24mm lens on a full-frame 36X24mm DSLR.

Leica states that the 30/2.8 Elmarit-S offers “extremely low distortion”, which to me means less than 0.5% distortion, but to Leica might mean up to 2%. No distortion graph is provided.

Standard 82mm filters are usable, the same size used by the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II and Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon.

Leica’s description

Its wide angle of view opens up a multitude of new opportunities in creative composition, particularly in the fields of interior, architectural and landscape photography.
