The Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M ASPH lens with its handy dimensions is distinguished by very high image quality and a very wide image angle - making it a particularly practical wide-angle lens. It is suitable for a very wide range of uses for everything from daytime reportage to landscape and travel photography.

Even at the initial f-stop of 3.8, contrast and detail rendering are already excellent. At the medium f-stops, the depth of field is so large that it can even reproduce entire scenes in sharp focus. That makes it excellent for use in combination with the snapshot mode of the LEICA M8.2.

Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M Features

  • Used on the digital LEICA M8 models, an equivalent focal length of 32 mm is obtained due to the slightly smaller image sensor
  • This extremely practical focal length enables a wide spectrum of applications extending from true-to-life portraits to landscape and architecture photography
  • The LEICA ELMAR-M 24 mm f/3.8 ASPH is the ideal combination with the snap-shot mode of the new LEICA M8.2
  • The initial aperture of 3.8 can be used unrestrictedly as contrast and detail rendering are already excellent at this setting
  • Stopping down is practically only necessary for increasing the field depth. Stopped down to medium values, the field depth range is so great that entire landscapes will be depicted in sharp focus
  • Particularly suitable for photojournalistic reportage and architecture photography when utilizing the full 24x36 mm picture format

Leica 24mm f/3.8 Elmar-M Reviews

Reviewed by 2 customers


just became my favorite lens


from NYC  -  Professional

spectacularly sharp and even. 3.8 not a problem with the M240 higher ISOs this lens has not left my camera since I took delivery of it. great for environmental portraits, landscape, and street photography.




from Miami, FL  -  Photography Student

I mainly use the legendary 50 summilux asph in my m9. Once I thought about buying a wide-angle lens that fits in my work: Light, small and as sharp as possible. I used to use one of my 35mm to do the work, but as you guys know, 35mm is anything BUT wide-angle. So I compared 21 elmar, 24 elmar, 28 summicron, and... Well I discover 24 elmar an INCREDIBLE HIDDEN GEM!! I think 15mm, 18mm and 21mm are in a different category, they are crazy wide-angle, I`ll have some distortions using them. I mean, they are excellent but the proportions of the subjects are abnormal. 28mm is not wide enough. In the end I think 24mm fits very well. Its a CRAZY SHARP even full opened. Its so small, light and well made. The colors are impressive, as good as Leica`s best. I know 24 is not a popular Leica format and thats the reason I wrote this review. When you consider to buy a 28mm or 21mm please consider this one too. Right now my package is: 50mm Lux asph; 135mm Apo-Telyt; 24mm Elmar and 18mm Zelss ZM (another hidden Gem). I have others but I never use them.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can I use this lens with an M6 ?
CARL G  Yes, the lens will mount on a M6 or any M. The M6 does not have 24mm frame lines in its viewfinder so you will need to use an external 24mm viewfinder available from Leica or others to see the full 24mm of frame. The M6 0.52 and 0.72 cameras have 28mm frame lines available so you might want to consider the 28mm lens rather than the 24mm if you have either of those versions of the M6.
