First picture of the Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24–70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens for L-mount


The new Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24–70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens for L-mount will be announced soon – here is what to expect:

  • The Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24-70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens will be a part of a new “economy line” from Leica (not sure for the exact name of the new product line)
  • The official announcement should be in May
  • The VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24–70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens will be offered together with the Leica SL2s camera as a set.
  • The lens will be priced just slightly higher than the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for L-mount (still under €3,000/$3,000?)
  • The lens will not have an all-metal body like other Leica SL lenses
  • The optics of the lens are rumored to be based on the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens, on the outside, the lens will look more like the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for L-mount

Some Leica stores are already using new press photos with the upcoming Leica VARIO-ELMARIT-SL 24–70mm f/2.8 ASPH lens – the size is really compact as previously reported and you can clearly see the 24-70mm label on the front:
