60mm f/2.8 Macro Elmarit R Lens - Duclos Converted To Canon EF Mount
Item #: S-015692
List Price: $3,200.00

This is a brand new 60mm f/2.8 Macro Elmarit R Lens - Duclos Converted To Canon EF Mount. A 60mm lens with an especially broad range of applications. If you can forego extreme high speeds in this range of focal lengths in order to gain the great advantage of a focusing range, from infinity all the way down to a reproduction ratio of 1:2(10.2"), then this is the perfect lens for you.

The lens was originally manufactured as Series 8 variant, which was later replaced by an E55 model. Both variants followed same optical formula and the only difference between the two is the built-in lens hood offered with the E55 model.

The optical construction of the lens consists of 6 elements in 5 groups - a pretty straightforward optical design. The build quality of Leica Macro Elmarit-R 60mm f/2.8 is superb, as expected from a Leica lens - the barrel, focus and aperture rings, the mount are all metal. The focus ring is very smooth and the aperture ring snaps with a nice click, moving from f/2.8 through f/22 in half f-stop increments. The lens looks and feels very sturdy, with no wobbling inside or out. And considering its fully metal barrel, the lens is quite lightweight, weighing only 400g and measuring 62 x 67mm (2.44 x 2.63in) when fully collapsed. The inner cam of the lens actually extends when focusing towards the macro, doubling the overall length of the lens.
