Uncompromised image quality

The heart of the lens consists of 14 optical elements, arranged in 10 groups. Two aspherical lenses and two extra-low dispersion glasses reduce chromatic aberration and distortion to a minimum. The image generated by the lens is full of detail, color and contrast.

Extremely close encounter

The lens features an extremely short focusing distance of 19 cm (measured from the subject to the camera sensor). This creates unconventional opportunities in macro photography for creating multi-plane frames with exceptional perspective.

Perfect stars

When you close the 5-blade aperture, you get the effect of aesthetically pleasing and well-defined 10-point “stars”. These appear in the photo in place of the sun or other light sources, such as street lamps, car headlights or Christmas tree lights.

Small and lightweight lens

The 11mm f/4.5 is designed with landscape photographers and travelers in mind. Its design doesn’t restrict mobility, and is extremely sturdy yet lightweight and small. This compact lens measures less than 6.4 cm and weighs only 254 g.

Surgical precision and attention to detail

Manual focusing with this lens is a pleasure. The ring works impeccably and with a perceptible resistance. The lens is marked with a distance scale expressed in meters and feet. When you reach a distance of 0.7 m, you will feel a click reminding you of the minimum distance for correct focusing using the rangefinder for the Leica M system.

The aperture is set using a separate ring. For total values we will feel a distinct click, but nothing prevents you from smoothly adjusting this parameter on intermediate values.

Two ways to filter

Despite its ultra-wide focal length, the lens has a traditional 62mm wide circular filter thread. This is a very practical and convenient solution.

A second way to accommodate 100mm wide rectangular filters is with a special magnetic mount.
