    Leica 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5 reviews

    APO-Vario-Elmar-T 55-135mm f/3.5-4.5 ASPH Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Light Weight, Excellent Resolution! For an APSC sized lens with an equivalent range of 80-200, this lens is small, light weight and very easy to handle. A similar Canon lens would weigh about 2 1/2 times the weight. Now Leica needs to step up their game and provide a camera body that is equal to this lens (and all other T lenses). I am using T lenses on the Leica SL body. Despite the sensor being dumbed down to only 11MP (from the full frame size of 24MP), T lenses are a pleasure to use with the SL.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little zoom lens A light weight and compact zoom lens which goes beautifully hand in hand with my TL2. Sharp images and works wonderfully.
