Leica 24mm Elmarit-R f/2.8 35mm Primes
At first glance, photographs taken with this lens do not look like superwide-angle pictures. However they are very impressive because of their unusual perspective. In the close-up range, this lens makes unusual images possible because it sets the main subject off in an interesting manner in relation to its surroundings.

Flare resistance in the light.
Compact. Good Bokeh

This is a much maligned lens among Leica users. Evidentally a Minolta design from the 1970's. All I can say is that Minolta 70's design combined with Leica quality control really rocks! I purchased this as "as new" secondhand at a much lower price than a new lens. I cannot understand why the previous owner parted with it other than needing the money.
