Leica launched its M-series previously and we have gone inside out learning about them what about the Leica T lenses? Leica launched its compact system for the first time in the form of Leica-T. They are crafted with a modern design and have extremely classy and stylish look. It is machined out of a single block of Aluminum. Leica T system has only two lenses to its support an 18-56mm and a fixed 23mm Asph lens which is equivalent to 35mm.

Leica T system has limited number of lenses and it does not support third party lenses as well. We are sure more Leica Lenses will come from the company and they can never ignore producing them just the way they did for the Leica M system.
Good News for Leica M users, Leica M users can attach their adapters with T system. Leica T lenses are very few in number and this company definitely new that many people might already have a Leica M system and lenses that supported the M system hence they made it flexible enough to support both the systems. The M to T lens mount adapter is not cheap though it can cost you around $300.
Leica lacks telephotos beyond 200 mm and it does not offer faster prime Leica T lenses. This system also lacks a wideangle prime or zoom lens that can shoot landscape or architectural subjects.
