Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. Overview

Characterized by its sleek, unobtrusive profile, the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. Lens is a compact optic that is particularly well-suited for street photography applications. Beyond its svelte stature, this wide-angle prime also features an eight-element, six-group optical design that contains one aspherical element to minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for clean, sharp image quality throughout the aperture and focusing ranges. Additionally, for intuitive handling and use, the manual focus design lends precise control while shooting, and its short, just over 1" in length, profile barely protrudes into the viewfinder field of M cameras for a clearer, uncluttered perspective while composing images.

One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and clarity. This aspherical element also contributes to a compact design that extends just slightly into the viewfinder of M cameras.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:22.
The front of the lens has 39mm-diameter threads to accept optional filters and the lens is male threaded to accept the included lens hood.

question

Would this lens lose quality being adapted to the Sony A7RIII...?
Asked by: Brian
Yes, to a certain degree, Sony sensor stack is thicker, and generally speaking, lens designed for Leica M mount will perform better on a Leica digital camera due to its thin sensor stack. You can check Philipreeve's article on "Kolari Ultra Thin Sensor Stack Modification"
