Versatile in a small space
There is one all-important factor in the everyday work of professional photographers: flexibility. When pressures of time or limited accessibility to subjects make it impossible to change your position or lens, you can always rely on the variable focal lengths and outstanding imaging performance of the TL-Vario lenses. In combination, the newly defined focal length ranges of 17 mm and 200 mm and unusually short close focusing distances cover the greatest possible spectrum of photographic situations.
With their precise and reliable autofocus, almost indestructible construction, and the typical Leica picture quality, they are ideal for mastering all photographic challenges in which speed and utmost precision are essential.
