Moving forward, all lenses for the Leica T camera system will be rebranded as “TL” lenses.
As the Leica T and the new Leica SL share the same bayonet mount, Leica L-Mount, the designation ‘TL’ will be used for all new lenses manufactured for the Leica T camera system. Thanks to the flexibility offered by the TL-Lenses for a wide range of applications on cameras with the L-Mount, Leica once again underlines the company’s fundamental principle of system-compatibility and sustainability, and thus offers users access to an even more diverse portfolio of Leica products.
The lens portfolio of the Leica T camera system offers a total of six lenses. Currently available are three prime lenses and three zoom lenses that together offer a range of focal lengths for every photographic situation. The two fast prime lenses, the Leica Summicron-TL 23 mm f/2 ASPH. and the Summilux-TL 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH., are classic focal lengths for reportage-style photography. The APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60 mm f/2.8 ASPH. complements them perfectly as a lens for finely detailed close-up photography. The three compact zoom lenses, the Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-TL 11–23 mm f/3.5–4.5 ASPH., Vario-Elmar-TL 18–56 mm f/3.5–5.6 ASPH., and APO-Vario-Elmar-TL 55–135 mm f/3.5–4.5 ASPH., cover an entire range of focal lengths equivalent to 17 to 200 mm in 35 mm format and deliver outstanding images with rich contrast from corner to corner of the frame.
All Leica TL-Lenses stand out with impeccable imaging performance at all ranges from infinity to their closest focusing distance, and deliver images with the inimitable Leica look and unique bokeh. They are all designed by the optical engineering specialists in Wetzlar and offer the exceptional imaging performance for which Leica lenses are renowned. The combination of optical and technical expertise and the use of only the finest materials guarantee consistent quality and reliability in every situation.
