Leica APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 Overview

A unique lens within the Leica lens line-up, the APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4 is a telephoto prime characterized by both its long focal length and apochromatic design. The telephoto design delivers an attractive visual compression that pairs well with a sophisticated optical layout that minimizes distortion and light fall-off for clean and accurate reproductions. As an apochromat, virtually all color fringing and chromatic aberrations have also been eliminated for a high degree of clarity, contrast, and color fidelity.

Apochromatic design delivers high resolution and sharpness while also suppressing chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity and color accuracy. Distortion and light fall-off have also been reduced for clean and accurate image quality.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 4.9' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:9.
Built-in telescoping lens hood can be used to reduce lens flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Does this lens obstruct the viewfinder of M10R?

Does this lens obstruct the viewfinder of M10R?
Asked by: Greg
Yes, this lens would obstruct the viewfinder a bit. Does it obstruct the frame lines? Less so. This can be a difficult question to answer because different people will have a different definition of how much viewfinder blockage is acceptable. The Leica Visoflex is always a good consideration when using lenses like these. B&H # LEVSB, Leica cat # 18767.

Is it worth getting this lens if you have the APO Summicron M 90 ASPH? I would like more length is it worth it?
Asked by: Liz
I own this lens. With the Leica M, it is a very difficult lens to nail the focus on due to the inherent nature of rangefinder cameras and longer focal length lenses. I would not recommend this lens unless you have the Visoflex to aid you in focusing or use it on the SL series.
