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.
