Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 Lens Set with Macro-Adapter and Angle Viewfinder
For Macro Photography
Configured for macro photography with a Leica M-mount rangefinder camera, the Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 Lens Set with Macro-Adapter and Angle Viewfinder bundles the unique retracting short telephoto prime with the Macro-Adapter-M to achieve a 1:2 reproduction ratio and 41cm minimum focusing distance for close-up shooting. This bundle also includes the Angle Viewfinder M for more comfortable viewing when working from either high or low shooting angles.
The Leica Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4 Lens is a prime telephoto lens with a retractable design for portability. With a 90mm focal length and manual focus design it excels at portraiture, and in any situation where the ability to work from a greater distance is required. When working with close-up subject matter, the lens is able to achieve a minimum focusing distance of 2.6' with a reproduction ratio of 1:6.7.
It incorporates four elements within four groups, and each element is coated with a multi-layered anti-reflective coating to reduce lens flare and ghosting for colour neutrality and increased clarity. When coupled with the optional Macro-Adapter-M and used on a camera featuring live view, this lens is also able to achieve a minimum focusing distance of 16.1" with a reproduction ratio of 1:2. The lens' retractable design also enables it to maintain infinity focus when used with the Macro-Adapter-M.
With the Leica Macro-Adapter-M attached between the camera and an M-mount lens, the lens-to-sensor distance can be increased to allow reproduction ratios up to 1:2 for close-up shooting. It features a helical screw system, which can be used to vary the adapter's extension length between 18-30 mm (0.7-1.2") for adjusting focusing distance. The adapter is designed for use on Leica cameras featuring a live view function (such as the M Typ 240) and with lenses with focal lengths greater than 28mm.
The Leica Angle Viewfinder M shows a large, round, upright, and un-reversed central section of the viewfinder image of approximately 0.3". It is a freely rotatable 45° eyepiece. It is compatible with all M-series cameras, except with the first M-3 series (production year 1954).
