Leica has announced the Elpro 52, a new close-up attachment for selected Leica M and TL lenses to expand their potential for macro photography.
The Leica Elpro 52 offers shallow depth of focus and promises to let users captured detailed close-up images while giving images a soft effect in the out of focus areas.
The lens will maintain the same focusing and aperture settings with the Elpro 52, and Leica says the lightweight attachment won’t interfere with the lens handling while mounted.
The Leica Elpro 52 is on sale now for $395. It comes with two stepping ring adapters for 46mm and 49mm filter threads, which allow the attachment to be mounted on more than 20 different Leica M- and TL-Lenses.
