    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.

      The presented Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is the second in this century, and the fourth in general, construction which has appeared in the Noctilux series.

      A fixed lens, about which many portrait photographers have dreamed, is a fully manual lens, which is supposed to fully extend the new possibilities in this type of photography.
       

      1). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
       
      The lens is supposed to ensure a significantly more shallow depth of field than Noktilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, which is a remarkable achievement. Apart from that, we will get a minimum focus distance of 85cm.

      The lens is equipped with a 11-blade aperture, with the maximum nominal slot of f/1.25, which is going to provide a higher-than-average bokeh effect.
       

      2). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
       
      The lens has the dimensions of 74x91mm and it weights 1055g so it’s not a compact one. Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is going to be compatible with the M system, but thanks to a special adapter we will also be able to mount it to the Leica SL lens.
       

      3). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
       
      The optical system consists of 9 elements placed in 6 groups, and the whole construction is to be characterized by high resolution and proper correction of all optical defects, which is definitely going to be useful during the work with the lens and new future high-resolution cameras.
       

      4). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
       
      The price of the new lens is $12800 (unfortunately YES) and it is to appear on sale at the beginning of 2018.
