- Technical Specs
A combination of the know-how of Leica’s engineers and the latest developments in manufacturing technology has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It delivers high-contrast images, with high-resolution detail, even at its widest aperture, and down to its minimum focusing distance. This is made possible by a number of factors including the use of a floating element, special glass types with unique refraction properties, and elements with aspherical surfaces. The properties of this lens not only make it ideal for any photo situation demanding a handy all-rounder with the natural image angle of the 50 mm standard focal length, but also for available light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography – usually the preserve of much larger formats. Its wide-ranging versatility also makes it a top choice in assembling a Leica M lens outfit.

Leica E46 ND 4-Stop 16x Filter, Black
Leica’s new line of neutral density filters are designed to reduce the amount of light coming through the lens by 4 stops. This allows you to significantly lengthen shutter speeds, experiment with motion blur and, for example, soften the motion of flowing water or clouds. It also makes moving persons or vehicles vanish from the scene when shooting with longer exposure times.
Alternatively, these filters allow you to shoot at wide open aperture in strong lighting conditions when otherwise the camera’s fastest shutter speed would be exceeded resulting in an overexposed image. They are manufactured to the same optical standards and with the same aluminum used in Leica M lenses.
The filters are multicoated high grade optical glass to reduce internal reflections, and are lighter than their predecessors thanks to aluminum versus brass construction. Each filter includes a 2 year Leica warranty and protective plastic case.
