People who like the Leica Super-Angulon 21/3.4 may also like the Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 v1 as they have similar color performance. Perhaps, the designers of the Elmarit 28 v1 took inspiration from the Schneider Super-Angulon, despite their different focal lengths.
28mm for Street Photography
With 28mm street photography, a lot of environmental information is captured. This focal length is particularly suitable for travel records and life captures, which is why the iPhone has been equipped with a 28mm lens for many years. The biggest problem with 28mm is distortion control. If it is distorted, it will bring an unpleasant feeling. However, the distortion of the Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 V1 is perfectly controlled and is the best of all 28mm lenses I have ever used, better than later versions. The advantage of nearly zero distortion is that you can capture photos as you like, even at close range, without any strange feeling.
28mm lens that brings out the 35mm frame line
The first camera with a 28mm frame line was the Leica M4-P in 1980, and in 1972, they didn’t meet. It will bring out the 35mm frame line on Leica M2, M4, M6, M7, MP, and m9. This is a 28mm lens that brings out the 35mm frame line. This must be remembered. Normally I use the edge of the viewfinder as the 28mm frame line, and they’re actually pretty close.
Avoid m5 and cl
The rear lens group is much longer than an ordinary lens and will be inserted into the camera body, which may hinder the metering module of the Leica m5 or cl. Leica product number 11801, the serial number is lower than 2314921, cannot be used on M5 and CL, it will damage the metering arm. Apart from these two models, this lens can be used with all other Leica M cameras, including digital M cameras.contact: email@example.com © 2020 Zhao Zhenguo. All Rights Reserved.
