Planning your post-Covid travels and hoping to get some decent snaps? You’re in luck with the arrival of the new Vario-Elmarit-SL zoom lens from Leica.

As you start to look to travel in 2021 and beyond, you’ll probably start thinking about your photography needs. Nothing suits travel better than the versatility of a zoom lens, especially for the happy snapper. Fortunately, Leica Camera has expanded its Leica SL lens portfolio with another powerful zoom that will bring those travel snaps to life.

The Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. is as equally suited to travel and landscape photography as it is to portraits, close-ups, and even video production, making it a great lens to throw (carefully) into your day pack.

With its extensive focal range and consistently high light sensitivity of f/2.8, the new addition is the quintessence of a universal lens. Thanks to its excellent price-performance ratio, it also represents a perfect opportunity for budding shooters to upgrade to the SL-System. Leica’s two new lens-and-camera sets are also aimed specifically at newcomers to the SL-System and are therefore very favourably priced.

The elaborate lens design, comprising 19 elements in 15 groups, ensures outstanding optical performance. A total of three elements feature aspherical surfaces on both sides. Nine specialist-glass elements with anomalous partial dispersion provide excellent chromatic correction across the entire focal range. The internal focus is based on a single, lightweight lens element, and utilises a quiet stepper motor to deliver fast and precise autofocus.

With its robust metal body and ingress protection against water spray and dust, the Vario-Elmarit- SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. can even be used in harsh environmental conditions, which is great if you have a safari or polar cruise in mind.

The compact dimensions of the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70 f/2.8 ASPH. are made possible by the absence of in-lens optical image stabilization. Instead, when the lens is mounted on the SL2 or SL2-S, the camera’s suspended image sensor provides highly effective image stabilization and sharper images. In addition, the minimum focusing distance of just 18 centimetres from the sensor plane (at the shortest focal length) and 38 centimetres (at the longest focal length) ensures exceptionally high-quality images even when shooting at close range.
