The Leica Vario-Elmarit-R 28-90mm f2.8-4.5 ASPH is a great lens. Arguably one of the best medium zooms ever made. It is fairly light considering its range, and yields beautiful images. We mounted it on a Leica M9, M240, and a Leica SL for this test. The lens went into production in 2004. Considering its vintage, its an exceptional design that rivals, and even surpasses, many modern zooms. When introduced, it set a new level for standard zoom performance, rivalling many prime lenses of the time. Lets see how it does today!
If you are reading this then you know that Leica has recently started shipping the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35 f/3.5-4.5 ASPH lens in limited quantities. The other day, I managed to get a hold of one, so here we have a limited preview of the lens. The full review will be published as soon as I have had a chance to thoroughly shoot the lens and examine it’s attributes.
