Additional information:

The Leica APO-Elmarit-R 180 mm f/ 2.8 is a high-quality apochromatic telephoto prime lens with multi-coating for 35-мм SLR Leica R cameras.

 It features a perfect build made of metal and glass, which resulted in its heavy weight. Unfortunately, it is not equipped with a tripod mount. Via adapter it can be mounted on modern SRL or mirrorless cameras.

Besides apochromatic180/2.8 there is an ordinary 180/2.8 with worse characteristics.
