The Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4 ASPH is a telephoto zoom from Leica designed for the full-frame Leica SL – Typ 601 mirrorless cameras. Key features include:
- Advanced Optics. The 90-280mm f/2.8-4 features a 17 group / 23 element construction that utilizes 7 anomalous partial dispersion elements. All of that glass means reduced chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range for giving you an image that is sharp and clear. The Optical Image Stabilization system can handle up to 3.5 stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting with longer shutters.
- Focus, Focus, Focus. The linear-positioned stepping motor is smooth, nearly silent, and gives an accurate autofocus performance. The Vario-Elmarit SL 90-280 focuses at a mere 2’ at the 90mm focal length position, or and at 4.6’ at the 280mm focal length position. An internal focusing system means the front filter ring does not rotate during use, which allows for an easier time working with circular polarizers, graduated ND filters, or other types of filters dependent on a specific orientation.
- Telephoto Range. The 90-280mm L mount zoom covers long zoom range for everything from a portrait-length to a full on telephoto distance. The lens is designed for use on full-frame mirrorless cameras, but can also be used on a crop sensor where it will provide a 135-420mm equivalent focal length range.
- Quality Build. The weather-sealed design keeps the dust and moisture out, while keeping you working even in inclement shooting conditions. Water-repellent AquaDura coatings on the front and rear optical surfaces protect against moisture and other elements.
