Tradition of excellence.
Leica M lenses have always been known to be among the best in the world. The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 certainly continues this tradition. At the same time, its extraordinary optical performance places the new addition in a league of its own – even among M lenses. With a closest focusing distance that is notably short for the M-System, exceptionally sharp rendition, distinctive bokeh and high light sensitivity, this masterpiece of German engineering enables photographers to work even more creatively – not just with the Leica M, but also with the Leica SL2 and SL2-S.
A closer look.
The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. quite literally goes one step further, by facilitating true close-up shots. Its minimum focusing distance of just 30 centimetres surpasses all previous M lenses. A floating lens element ensures exceptional rendition quality across the entire image at all distance settings.
The focus ring has a particularly large throw of 300°, which enables extremely precise focusing despite the extended close focus range. In conjunction with its high light sensitivity, the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. takes compositional creativity to the next level. An exceptional lens for those once-in-a-lifetime Leica moments.
|An optical masterpiece.
With its intricate design, special glass types and high-precision craftsmanship, the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. ranks among Leica’s most elaborately constructed lenses. The result: a close-to flawless imaging performance. Three of the ten lens elements (divided into five groups) feature aspherical surfaces – one of them on both sides. In addition, the new M lens renders images with practically no chromatic aberration, thanks to apochromatic correction – a rare quality in lenses of this focal length.
The specially designed lens hood, in combination with highly effective anti-reflective coatings, make the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. virtually impervious to stray light and glare.
