New Leica Elmar-M 24mm Lens Perfect All-Purpose Lens For The M8

Leica CamerasLeica says their new Elmar-M 24mm f/3.8 Aspherical lens is the perfect all-purpose walkaround wide-angle lens for the M8 digital rangefinder. The digital rangefinder’s digital crop factor effectively converts the Elmar-M 24mm to a 32mm angle-of-view when mounted on the M8. The Elmar 24mm is compact, has excellent image quality wide open at the f/3.8 maximum aperture, and has almost limitless depth-of-field when stopped down a couple of stops. The Leica press release didn’t list a price, but it does point out that “lenses with a medium initial aperture” are usually far less expensive without sacrificing quality. So we might expect the Elmar 24mm to have a more regular guy price than most Leica lenses.
