EX+ condition Leica 135mm f/3.4 Apo Telyt M Manual Focus Lens (11889)
Known for its superior image quality and luxury design, the Leica brand has a reputation to uphold in the world of photography. With high-quality long distance photography features, the Leica APO-Telyt 135mm telephoto lens lives up to its name and expectations and belongs on every professional and artistic photographer’s wish list. This Leica telephoto lens is an essential tool if you’re a professional nature, portrait, or wedding photographer. As a prime lens, it defaults at a 135mm focal length on a Leica camera body, allowing photographers to zoom into the most important details. Open up the aperture to a maximum of f/3.4, which lets in a fair amount of light while maintaining overall sharpness and detail. While not as fast as Leica’s f/2.8 M lens, the maximum aperture will still allow you extra time to use the camera handheld before pulling out the flash or tripod while shooting outdoors in the evening or in a dimly-lit space. Conversely, you can stop down the aperture to a minimum of f/22 when capturing every detail of your image is important, a great feature for landscape photographers and wildlife photographers shooting one-of-a-kind images. You’ll want to use a tripod at the minimum aperture to take full advantage of the Leica quality image. Wedding photographers will love the ability to use this lens while capturing close-up shots of the wedding party, venue, and guests. The 135mm focal length allows photographers to capture these important shots from a distance. You can stand on the opposite side of the room while capturing these special moments, remaining unobtrusive to guests. Weighing just 1 pound, this lens is light enough to carry around all evening, whether on-camera or in a small bag. The Leica APO-Telyt 135mm lens is usable on Leica camera bodies, which are top of the line for their quality, crispness, and sharpness. This lens is not an everyday, multipurpose lens, but it excels above and beyond its competition at its strengths. While you’ll typically use this lens from a farther distance, its minimum focus distance sits at 5 feet for closer images or beautiful portraits. If your photography subjects are generally nervous to be in front of the camera, the 135mm will force you to shoot from several feet away, giving your subject space and easing his or her camera shyness. The lens has a built-in sliding lens hood, which brings the lens length to a modest 4.1 inches, compact enough for a small camera bag. The Leica APO-Telyt 135mm offers a personalized magnification feature with a 1:9 magnification. As with all Leica products, the glass is high quality and delivers enhanced optical performance. If you’re not a fan of routine post-processing work, you’ll love the updated viewfinder that helps photographers create accurate shots with a higher symmetry rate in each exposure. The Leica APO-Telyt 135mm lens sets a new quality standard for this focal range and fits right in with Leica’s reputation and prestigious line of camera equipment.
