Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH.

Leica has announced the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH. lens for L-Mount cameras, such as the Leica SL2, and Leica SL2-S, as well as other L-Mount cameras from Sigma and Panasonic. It looks a lot like the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN, which is also available in L-Mount (and E-Mount), but if you're a Leica camera owner, then it's likely that you'll want your lens to match the look and style of your camera body.

Leica releases a new, universal zoom lens – and launches two lens-and-camera sets for SL-System newcomers.


Wetzlar, 6th May 2021. Leica Camera is expanding the Leica SL lens portfolio with the addition of a new, powerful zoom lens. The extensive focal range and consistent high light sensitivity of f/2.8 makes the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. the quintessential universal lens. The lens is ideal for reportage, travel, studio, architectural and landscape photography as well as portraits, close-ups, and video productions. Thanks to its excellent price-performance ratio, it also represents a perfect opportunity to upgrade to the SL-System. The two new lens-and-camera sets are also aimed specifically at newcomers to the SL-System.

The elaborate lens design includes 19 elements in 15 groups and a total of three elements feature aspherical surfaces on both sides, ensuring an outstanding optical performance. Nine specialist-glass elements with anomalous partial dispersion provide excellent chromatic correction across the entire focal range. The internal focus is based on a single, light-weight lens element, and utilises a quiet stepper motor to deliver a fast and precise autofocus. With its robust metal body and ingress protection against water spray and dust, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. can even be used in harsh environmental conditions.

The absence of in-lens optical image stabilisation permits the dimensions of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. to be compact and refined. When the lens is mounted on the SL2 or SL2-S, the camera’s suspended image sensor provides highly effective image stabilisation proving effective in still photography and video recordings. The aperture of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. includes 11 blades – allowing a harmonious, circular bokeh. The minimum focusing distance of just 18 centimetres from the sensor plane (at the shortest focal length) and 38 centimetres (at the longest focal length) ensures exceptionally high-quality images even when shooting at close range.
