The Elmarit-S 2.8/30mm ASPH. CS (central shutter) is optically identical to the non-CS version, with the added feature of an electronically controlled leaf shutter that permits flash synchronization up to 1/1000 sec. Corresponding to a 24mm lens in the 135mm format, optimized for the 30 x 45mm Leica Pro Format Sensor, and featuring legendary performance that redefines sharpness, colour and contrast in medium format optics, the Elmarit-S 2.8/30mm ASPH simply has no equal.
Whether at close focus (0.5m) or infinity, wide open or stopped down, expect unsurpassed contrast and resolution and distortion that is so well controlled, optimization through software is unnecessary.
The pricey bottom line is tempered by the realization that the Elmarit-S 2.8/30mm ASPH is built for a lifetime of heavy use. Dust and spray resistant, with the very finest build using robust materials, the lens should perform without hiccups in the most rigorous climates and toughest conditions.
As well it should, the rectangular hood (12400) comes with the lens.
