NEW ARTICLE IN THE LEICA M 240 SERIES. Enjoy!

The Leica 400mm APO-Telyt-R f/6.8 on the Leica M 240. This is an interesting tele lens because it has fast-focus grip. It is simply a release button one press, and then it’s simply pushing the front in or out till the focus is there. Very fast. The quality is outstanding, and the simplicty of the unit is breathtaking: Basically a long aluminium tube that can even be unscrewed so it is two shorter and more compact tubes (fits easier in a photo bag), and the lens element is one simple piece of glass in the front (that can also be unscrewed for cleaning on both sides).If you look at the picture above, what you see is a piece of glass in the top, connected to the camera with a long aluminium tube. That’s all, that is how simple it is made. Usually these sell for $500 - $1,000 which is quite fair for an outstanding 400mm lens. There also exists a Leica 560mm APO-Telyt-R.The modular tele lenses (280mm/400mm/800mm) are quite heavy and quite expensive compared to the Telyt lenses, usually in the area of $15,000 - $40,000 for a lens or the set.
