Leica 135mm f/3.4 APO Telyt M w/ 1.4x Magnifier

Available Today

A telephoto lens of uncompromising quality with apochromatic color correction, the resolution, contrast, and sharpness of the 135 mm Apo-Telyt are optimal at all apertures. It also has very little light falloff even at maximum aperture and minimal distortion, resulting in top pro-level performance. This lens can render the finest details clearly and in rich contrast. As the longest focal length in the Leica M system, it’s ideal for shooting over long distances and is the perfect completion of any high-class outfit. It permits distinctive landscape shots with typical telephoto effects: the foreground and background are visually compressed. Moreover, it enables frame-filling portraits to be shot from afar, so the subject is undisturbed.

Please Note: This item includes the Leica Viewfinder Magnifier M 1.4x

The Leica 135mm f3.4 gives Leica users a telephoto option that’s not excessively heavy but still very high quality. If the 90mm choices just aren’t long enough, you won’t regret jumping up to this one. While it’s aperture is a bit slower, it’s still usable. Images have a smooth background blur, which makes it ideal for portraiture. The 1.4x magnifier, in my opinion, is a must have with this focal length. Just a heads up, when the viewfinder is attached, you have to move your eye around to see the shutter speed display. You still have view of everything as usual, it’s just been magnified.
