Now available in new Inverted Wireform™ (IWF) compact metalwork designed to exceed 24x36 coverage.

Leica 60mm Wireform™ F2.8 Elmarit lens converted by Van Diemen into PL mount using the compact body Wireform™ lens movement.

This lens is constructed using the short body version of the compact macro (not 1:1) lens movement developed by Van Diemen. The lens is very close focus and short in length well suited to work in confined areas. The lens also benefits from the light weight of the Wireform™ system. The lens has a variable pitch movement inproving the focus scaling and facilitating focus pulling. Gear rings are standard.

The lens is available on a made to order basis. 

All Van Diemen Wireform™ conversions are now supplied with dual iris scales as a standard feature and uniform 114mm front diameter, however, can also supply other larger diameters on request.
