With its impressive angle of view of 107°, this new TRI-ELMAR conquers 16 mm super wide-angle photography in perfect Leica M style. Due to the minimal distortion and barely perceptible field curvature, it can be recommended for highly demanding architecture photography even at the 16 mm setting.
Used on thedigital M8, it produces the image effect of a 21 - 28 mm lens, still enabling extreme wide-angle views. The ultra compact shape is achieved by two aspherical elements.
A new design of the interior focusing significantly enhances the quality in the close-focus range through an adaption of the floating element principle. Brilliant field depth can therefore be used from a distance of 0.33m for hyperfocal photography. Save money by buying the lens in a set together with the Universal Wide-angle Viewfinder M.

I wanted a "Leica Lens", with a focal length wider than my Leica 24mm Summilux lens (also, purchased from Adorama) for use on my Leica M9 (again, purchased from Adorama) -- this Leica Tri-Elmar lens fits my needs exactly; and, especially as I already have the Leica 24mm f/1.4 lens, and wanted a choice of focal lengths even wider than a Leica 21mm and 18mm lens. With this Tri-Elmar lens, I am able to quickly select from 16mm, 18mm or 21mm and for a Leica enthusiast that's into "super-wide" shooting, being able to do so and with just one Leica-m Lens, is a plus for me.
