  • Additional Information
Leica Cl Starter Bundle W/18mm

The Leica CL Starter Bundle (black) consists of the Leica CL #19301 and Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH #11088. The Leica CL Starter Bundle offers a deep savings of about $895 when compared to purchasing the camera and lens separately.

The Leica CL is an intuitive camera with a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder and all essential controls conveniently located on its top plate, designed to be used with L-mount lenses. Atop the camera are two dials, with customizable buttons in each center, for setting the aperture, shutter speed, ISO value, exposure compensation and shooting mode – making it convenient for the photographer to take pictures without taking their eye away from the viewfinder. An additional display on the top plate instantly provides all relevant photographic settings at a glance. The user has total control at their fingertips when taking pictures with the Leica CL, and the perfectly tuned pressure point of the shutter release brings it all together with a satisfying haptic click.

The 18 mm (27 mm equivalent) lens gives a wide field of view that captures the user's daily life with distortion-free sharpness and clarity. The Leica CL and Elmarit-TL 18 mm offer a comfortable transition from smartphone photography to traditional photography by providing an equivalent field of view to most smartphone lenses, while boasting superior imaging results and more tactile feedback through traditional button and dial controls.

The expansive range of TL lenses and accessories such as the M-Adapter L, R-Adapter L, flashes, straps and camera protector options all enhance the shooting experience with the Leica CL while providing the user with more options for creativity.
