Leica is set to release a 60mm prime lens for the Leica T compact system camera.

The Leica APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60mm f/2.8 ASPH bolsters the T-system lens portfolio to six models – comprising three zooms and three primes.

The newcomer lens is designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 90mm lens, and a macro reproduction ratio of 1:1.

The 10-elements-in-nine-groups, L-bayonet mount lens weighs 320g.

The Leica APO-Macro-Elmarit-TL 60mm f/2.8 ASPH will be available in a choice of black or silver-anodised finishes when it goes on sale in mid-September, priced £1,800.
