Optimised for close-up shooting, the Leica DG Macro-Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 ASPH. Mega OIS O.I.S. is a short-telephoto, 90mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Designed to strict tolerances in collaboration with Leica, this lens's optical design makes use of aspherical and extra-low dispersion glass elements to reduce aberrations and distortion for notable sharpness, clarity, and colour accuracy. Multi-coated elements also contribute to a reduction in lens flare and a floating elements system helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range.

Lets you take close-ups that capture your subjects in their actual size

This f/2.8 45mm (35mm camera equivalent: 90mm) macroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. lens with built-in image stabiliser lets you take close-ups that capture your subjects in their actual size. It also greatly boosts mobility by serving as a medium-length telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. lens for portraits, telephoto snapshots and landscapes.

A superb image quality with minimum distortion, chromatic aberrations as well as ghosts and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. s that passes a stringent Leica standard. An aspherical lens and an ED lens for a superb optical performance, and an inner focus system of three groups of floating structure which enables excellent resolution and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). without changing its overall length from full life-size magnification to infinity.

The closest focusing distance can be instantly changed to 15cm or 50cm with the switch on the lens barrel. Multi-coated lens elements minimise ghosts and flare. Has a durable metal mount


Features

  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 90mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/2.8 to f/22
