    Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S Announcement

      News

    Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S shows perfectly the greatest advantage of using the Micro Four Thirds system, offering the equivalent of 400mm for full frame and the light of f/2.8. Its dimensions are merely 174x87mm and it weighs 1245g. In comparison, Nikon 400mm f/2.8 weighs 134oz. (3.8kg) and it has the dimensions of 6.3in. (159.5mm)x14.09in. (358mm). These figures speak for themselves…

    The optical system of the new Leica consists of 15 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we have two low-dispersion lenses, which are to perfectly deal with chromatic aberration. But the most impressive property is the minimum focus distance which is only 1.15m. This will make it possible to use the lens in taking photographs which would be impossible to take with the use of ordinary 400’s. The 9-blade aperture can be closed up to f/22.

    Apart from that, the new lens is equipped with the POWER O.I.S optical stabilization system and sealings, which should protect the lens from dust and splashes. We also shouldn’t forget about the 1.4x teleconverter added to the set, which is supposed to change the lens into a telephoto lens with the equivalent of 560mm. Filters with the diameter of 77mm can be used on the front lens.

      Leica TL2 is the next version of Leica T (type 701) which was presented in the middle of 2014.

      The camera has been equipped with a new improved 24Mp CMOS sensor, which is 8Mp bigger than its predecessor. What's more, the sensor is supported by a newer generation processor Maestro II, thanks to which the camera should be faster and more efficient. The ISO range is 100-5000, which is a huge improvement when compared to the predecessor which enabled us to take photographs with the maximum ISO sensitivity of 12500.

      It is also worth mentioning that the new Leica camera gives a possibility of recording films in 4K, with the maximum speed of 30f/s.
       

      1). Leica TL2
       
      When it comes to shutter speed, in the new model it enables us to take photographs with the speed of 7f/s, and if we use the electronic shutter – up to 20f/s.

      The autofocus is based on contrast detection and has 49 AF points. In the newest model, it is supposed to adjust focus with the speed up to 165m/s.
       

      2). Leica TL2
       
      When it comes to design, the new camera is slightly different than its predecessor. The whole back panel is 3.7'' LCD touch screen, without any buttons. TL2 also has a more profiled handle, which should influence the handle's reliability in a positive way. The camera's menu has also undergone some changes – it is supposed to be more user-friendly now. In addition, Leica TL2 has 32GB of built-in memory.
       

      3). Leica TL2
       
      The camera presented today is already available on sale in two color versions: silver and black. This model will cost $2000.

      Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is a successor of the SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD model, presented in 2012, which for many years has been a great alternative to much more expensive lenses of producers such as Nikon and Canon.

      The optical system of new Tamron consists of 17 lenses placed in 12 groups. It includes 2 XR elements with high refractive index, 3 low-dispersion ones, 3 aspherical GM lenses and one hybrid apsheric lens. eBand Coating, the technology which improves anti-reflective effectiveness and working against the light, has also been used. The front lens is covered with fluroide layer, which makes it easier to remove dirt from its surface.

      Tamron SP 24-70 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is equipped with dual MPU processor, which is responsible for the whole control system, including image stabilization and USD motor. Thanks to that, the autofocus should be much faster and more precise than in the older model. The minimum focus distance is supposed to be barely 15" (38cm).
       

      2). Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2
       
      When it comes to design, the new model matches other lenses from the whole Tamron series. The lens is, of course, sealed.

      Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is to appear on sale in the second half of July 2017. It will cost around $1200.
