Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Similar to the movements of a view camera, the Leica 120mm TS-APO-Elmar-S f/5.6 ASPH Lens gives the photographer complete control over the perspective and the focal plane. The lens is characterized by an image circle increased by 153mm, which means that the lens can be shifted by up to 12 mm from the optical axis in any direction. This allows the user to change the view without changing the perspective, thus supporting, for example, product shots without irritating converging lines.
Independent of the shift, you can tilt the lens by up to 8° in any direction, thus tilting the focal plane in line with Scheimpflug's principle.
Tele-tilt-shift lens for high-accuracy perspective and focus control
Large tilt range for maximum depth of field (Scheimpflug principle)
Parallel shift to correct converging lines
Maximum contrast and resolution at all apertures over the entire focusing range
Brilliant, pure color reproduction
The exterior of the Leica TS-APO-Elmar-S 120mm f5.6 ASPH is different from that of other S lenses, due to its special design as a tilt/shift lens. The lens has a total of four rings for tilt and shift, one turn-and-slide ring each for adjusting the tilt and shift directions, and one ring each for adjusting the tilt and swing respectively. It additionally features a tripod plate with a 1/4" and a 3/8" thread, which allows the user to fix the lens in any orientation thanks to the rotating clamp and clamping screw.
The lens's large image circle simultaneously supports a shift of up to 12 mm and a tilt of up to 8°. Both the tilt and the shift mechanisms rotate through 360°, so that the respective adjustments can be made in any direction and independently of one other.
