Group portraits, landscapes, and architecture: Whenever the scene demands a wider view, the Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH. is the perfect wide-angle lens for capturing it all. With a range of focal lengths from 16 to 35 mm, this high-performance lens expands the spectrum of the existing portfolio of SL zoom lenses into the super wide-angle range.
from 16-280 mm
With the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH, the Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH., and the APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90–280 f/2.8–4 ASPH., the SL portfolio of zoom lenses covers a range of focal lengths from 16 to 280 mm. Thus the three zoom lenses offer a spectrum of focal lengths that fulfill the needs of all styles of photography.
Fast and sharp
when it matters
Together with exceptional imaging performance expected from a Leica at all focus distances and apertures, the high-performance lens offers simultaneously fast and nearly silent autofocus. To achieve this, only one very lightweight lens element is moved for focusing. A specially developed focus drive comprising a stepping motor and linear positioning enables very fast, almost-silent, and precise focusing without changing the overall length of the lens barrel.
under all conditions
As is the case with all other components of the Leica SL-System, the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH. is designed and constructed to meet the special demands of professional photography. Made in Germany, the rugged construction of this lens and its AquaDura® lens coating make it ideal for use in even the most difficult conditions. Improved high-quality coatings ensure optimum suppression of reflections and stray light within the optical system, for shooting in even the harshest lighting.
Jason Peterson began shooting analogue film photography in high school but remained averse to digital photography until a friend introduced him to Instagram.
His style is now instantly recognisable: black and white, heavy contrast, large scale and always on point in terms of composition and light. Inviting us to follow him into the dark, Jason explores the darkness of monochrome photography. The series was shot by Jason on the Leica SL with the wide-angle Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35 f/3.5–4.5 ASPH.Taking to the skies above his adopted hometown of Chicago, the 16-35mm addition to the Leica SL lens portfolio was the perfect piece of gear for capturing these broader horizons.

L-Mount A new era of creative freedom
The L-Mount marks the start of a new era of lens compatibility without compromise. Never before has one lens mount standard allowed for an almost limitless array of options in combining different interchangeable lenses with cameras featuring different sensor formats.
With the alliance between Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma, a collective 250 years of experience in the field of lens and camera construction will be combined into one platform. For the photographer, this opens up the chance to utilize endless variations of camera-lens combinations from the extensive product portfolios of all three manufacturers, allowing them to always find the best solution for their needs and any photographic situation.
