Leica APO-Telyt-M 135mm f/3.4

Capture Landscape Like Never Before

Cover the distance
With the longest focal length in the Leica M-System, this lens is ideal for shooting over long distances. It completes any high-class outfit and permits distinctive landscape shots with typical telephoto effects: the foreground and background are visually compressed. Moreover, it enables frame-filling portraits to be shot from afar, so the subject is undisturbed.

Technical details
As a telephoto lens of uncompromising quality, the APO-Telyt 135mm f/3.4 offers optimal resolution, contrast and sharpness at all apertures. With the apochromatic color correction, minimal distortion and little light fall-off even at maximum aperture, the lens delivers top pro-level image performance. It also renders the finest details clearly and in rich contrast.
