Leica Elpro E52 close up lens set announced

Leica announced the previously rumored Elpro E52 close up lens set. The Leica Elpro set consists of two elements with multilayer antireflective coating that attach to a lens like a filter and reduce the minimum focusing distance when shooting. Adapters for 46mm and 49mm lenses are also included:

“Excited to share that Leica Camera has created a new close-up attachment in the Leica Camera accessories portfolio.

The Leica Elpro 52 will expand upon the capabilities of selected Leica M- and TL-Lenses, making them more suitable for macro photography. The shallow depth of focus opens up new opportunities for incredibly detailed photography while still giving images a soft effect in the out of focus areas.

This lens holds true to the standard focusing and aperture settings Leica is known for, and ensures a light-weight and compact style as to not interfere with the lens handling while mounted.

The lens is on sale now for $395 complete with two stepping ring adapters for 46 mm and 49 mm filter threads, which allow the attachment to be mounted on more than 20 different Leica M- and TL-Lenses.”
