NEW 45mm f2.8 wide-angle lens for the Leica S-System

Leica has announced the Elmarit-S 45 mm f/2.8 ASPH lens for its medium format S system. This lens offers an angle of view equivalent to a 35mm lens on a full frame body. Like several of the other S lenses it’ll be available in two versions, either with or without an in-lens shutter (that allows flash sync at shutter speeds up to 1/1000 sec).

Leica is also offering new firmware updates for its S, S2 and S2-P cameras to give ‘optimum functionality’ with the lens. The update, version,  is available for registered S customers to download from the Leica Owners’ Area.
