High-performance meets compact size
Prime lenses offer their own special qualities: they are compact and fast, and deliver outstanding performance.
Their speed enables a wide range of new options, for instance the creative use of depth of field to isolate subjects from the foreground and background.
Pictures captured with TL-prime lenses also reveal the unmistakable bokeh for which Leica lenses are renowned.
Another advantage of fast prime lenses is that they allow the use of faster shutter speeds, either to capture fast-moving action or to prevent shake effects in pictures when shooting handheld in low light.
Elmarit-TL 18 f/2.8 ASPH.
Short, light and versatile.
The Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH. is not only one of the smallest in its class, it also by far exceeds the imaging performance of its competitors.
With a length of just 20.5 millimetres, a weight of around 80 grams and fast autofocus, this wide-angle is the perfect lens to take along everywhere you go.
Summicron-TL 23 f/2 ASPH.
A truly classical focal length that lets you realise the pictures you see in your mind’s eye and fully exploit the potentials of creative expression.
Its fast initial aperture enables you to create pictures with the unmistakeable Leica bokeh.
Summilux-TL 35 f/1.4 ASPH.
The fast classic
Delivering better values than comparable lenses in every performance category, the Leica Summilux-TL is the reference lens for the Leica CL & TL2 and allows photographers to make full use of the potentials of modern camera systems.
Thanks to internal focusing, the overall length of the lens remains unchanged when focusing.
APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 f/2.8 ASPH.
The APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 mm f/2.8 ASPH. enables you to capture macro pictures with the incomparable Leica look.
It simultaneously delivers best imaging performance throughout its aperture range and at all focusing distances.
Expand your creative horizons
Leica adapters make it possible to use more than 150 different Leica lenses on Leica APS-C cameras, including the high-performance Leica M-Lenses and classic Leica R-System lenses.
Proofs of performance
There is one all-important factor in the everyday work of professional photographers: flexibility.
When pressures of time or limited accessibility to subjects make it impossible for you to change your position or lens, you can always rely on outstanding imaging performance of the zoom lenses of the TL-System in a range of focal lengths from 17 to 200 mm.
