The Leica Super-Elmar-R 15mm f/3.5 is an ultra-wide angle prime lens for 35mm Leica R SLR cameras.
The Super-Elmar-R 15mm f3.5 was designed and manufactured by Carl Zeiss, Oberkochen (Germany), and its optical design is identical to the Zeiss Distagon T * 15mm f3.5, except for Leica coating, built-in filters UVA, yellow, orange, blue) and lens body. Optical distortions are negligible. There is a slight fall of sharpness towards the corners. The best imaging performance is achieved at f/8. A floating element ensures high resolution even at close range (16 cm). The lens was first introduced in 1980 and replaced in 2001 by the Super-Elmarit-R 15mm f/2.8 Asph (manufactured by Schneider). Angle of view - 110°.
