Leica Super-Elmar 21mm f/3.4 ASPH review

A brief review where I share my experience with 21 SEM, which I've used for a couple of months on a M240:

Only the second Leica M lens I have purchased new, and it's worth every penny.

Very nice review. I wouldn't leave home without it.

Good write up, and I have to agree it is a special little lens.

It's a fine lens, thanks for the review; I sold my 21mm Elmarit ASPH f/2.8 and Zeiss C-Biogon f/4.5 lenses to fund a SEM, which is more affordable than most Leica lenses. Here's one for a contrast vs. the Venice shots in the article...

IS a nice lens, but one for which i will have a very hard time justifying the price. I have the zeiss 2.8 and it really doesnt have any fault, maybe is to contrasty, that could be the only complain, which is not for me

Use the 21 SEM once and that Zeiss may not be safe for long in your kit.



Just saying'...
