The Leica SUPER-ELMAR-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. will help you capture the expansiveness of space like few other tools. Nominally larger than a standard lens, it boasts an extreme angle of view of up to 100 degrees and reaches far into the field of super wide angle lenses, at the same time guaranteeing the outstanding lens qualities that are typical for LEICA. The LEICA SUPER-ELMAR-M 18 mm f/3.8 ASPH. broadens the horizon not only in architecture and landscape photography but in many other areas as well.

Strengths: This lens is a good one. It's compact, excellent build quality, and looks good. The lens hood, and cap work well.
The photos it takes are outstanding. The contrast, and colors, and sharpness are the best you will see in a lens of this type. It give a beautiful eighteen pointed star on the highlights. Focusing is, as you would expect is smooth, and precise.
If you want to save a few bucks, get a Zeiss 18mm finder for it. It's cheeper, and you don't have to look at the finder lines for an M8. If you like ultra wide angle lenes, look no further.
A great ultra wide lens!
