The combination of more than a century of experience and state-of-the-art production methods makes Leica the only manufacturer with the ability to produce even large-diameter, aspherically ground lenses of this outstanding quality in serial production. This also holds true for the high-quality special glasses – for instance with anomalous partial dispersion or particularly high refractive indices – that demand the ultimate in technical expertise in their production.
Every Leica S-Lens with autofocus also has its own integrated processor for complete control of all functions. At the same time, you can override the autofocus at any time and set the distance manually with the focusing ring. The majority of the lenses of the Leica S-System are also available in an alternative version with an innovative central shutter (leaf shutter) for maximum creative freedom when using additional lighting.
