LEICA APO-Vario-Elmarit-R 70-180mm f/2.8 “Leica R Only” Lens CLA’d by DAG #3724863

Designed for the Leica R System, the Leica 70-180mm f/2.8 Vario-APO-Elmarit-R ROM (introduced in 1995) is a medium telephoto zoom lens with outstanding build and image quality; matching and surpassing that of fixed focal length lenses.  This fast high performance lens is relatively compact, easy to use, and has solid metal construction.

The Leica 70-180mm f/2.8 Vario-APO-Elmarit-R ROM is designed with 12 different types of glass, five of which consist of special anomalous partial dispersion glass to correct for apochromatic residual errors.  It is distinguished by the virtual absence of coma, astigmatism and field curvature.  The lens comes equipped with a built-in telescopic and rubber armored lenshood for added protection.

The lens is extremely sharp throughout the entire focal range of 70 to 180mm, even wide open. With virtually insignificant vignetting at full aperture, the Leica 70-180mm f/2.8 Vario-APO-Elmarit-R ROM gets tack sharp at f/5.6 and is entirely free of artificial vignetting.
