The Leica Vario-Elmar-T 18-56mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH is a lot more than just a standard kit lens. It's sharp in the image centre almost throughout the entire focal range, except at the 56mm telephoto setting where optimum sharpness isn't achieved until f/11.

It does the job just right. Of course I have it on my new Leica CL. It is not as fast as the M lenses on my M240, which are all F1 .4. Those of course are fixed focus lenses, and this is a zoom lens. F3 .5 to F 5.6 is not exactly fast, but again this is a zoom lens.

I like the response that I get from this lens. I use it to take candid photography. And street photography. Great for landscapes also.

Not German, but great optics, light weight, compact lens.I opened the box and was a bit disappointed, did not feel like the old Summicron -R Leitz Leica Flex lenes we have, but the pictures come out great,...

I bought this lens to use with my Leica SL. The lens needed a firmware update to work with the SL. The firmware update can only be applied with the lens attached to a Leica T; NOT and SL. I do not have a Leica T. I have no interest in buying a T simply to be able to update the firmware.

With the Lecia T I use this lens, the 35 T, and the 50 M Summilux. This Vario 18-56 is the one I go to the least. It's a quality lens and in good light the results are very good. It's a nice lens for travel photography if you don't want to bring much with you and want versatility.

Glass quality on this lens is great. While a little slow, the ability of the Leica T to take great photos at 2,500 compensates. Took some great photos on NYC subway platform which at 8x11 looked great with little grain.
