Incredibly Affordable Lenses for Leica Cameras

Photo Logo Kit

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a Leica but quickly given up because you thought adding lenses to the bodies would send expenses into outer orbit, this will bring a big smile to your face.

Is there anything more infuriating than seeing celebrities with Leica cameras? In the world of professional surfing, a certain few well-known legends over the years have professed their interest in photography and then had short films made about their creative pursuits. In each of them, they are always holding a Leica in hand and declaring their love for these legendary machines. That’s all well and good until you see that it is indeed true that the tools don’t make the artist; their photography was horrible for the most part. But if you have the money, why not? Most of us don’t, especially when you factor in the requisite glass.

But fear not, in this great video brought to you by The Camera Store TV, they run their eye over some very affordable lenses for Leica made by TTArtisan Lenses. For this review, the host uses a 21mm lens, a 35mm lens, and a 90mm lens (all for Leica M bodies) so you get to see a whole range of focal lengths and how well they work with the Leica M system. There’s also a nice discussion with a Leica collector, who gives his opinion on these TTArtisan lenses. The prices range from $400-700, but what about image quality? I’ll let you be the judge. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
