The Leica summilux-m 35 mm F/1 4 ASPH Is an extra Revised model of the favored wide-angle lens of the Leica M rangefinder system Due to the most recent developments within the fields of optics and precision engineering the brand new 35 lens units a complete new customary within the quick wide-angle lens portfolio No matter whether or not it”s a matter of selective focus within the close-up vary Excessive distinction Out there gentle purposes or panorama photographs with immense depth of subject The lens delivers persuasive arguments in any state of affairs Compared with its predecessor the brand new Leica summilux-m 35 mm F/1 4 ASPH Now incorporates a floating component The lenses behind the aperture blades are constructed as a floating group that adjustments its place relative to the entrance lens group throughout focusing to make sure that the Leica summilux-m 1 1 4/35 mm ASPH Achieves equally excellent imaging efficiency at nearer focusing distances One other new characteristic is a full-metal rectangular screw-mount lens hood that contributes considerably to the much more compact dimensions of the lens Even huge open the Leica summilux-m 35 mm F/1 4 ASPH Reveals efficiency traits with out precedent within the subject of compact 35 mm lenses excellent imaging efficiency over all the focusing vary From infinity to minimal focus wonderful distinction even within the most interesting buildings excellent rendition of particulars throughout all the picture subject good subject flattening and stopped all the way down to F2 and onwards nearly full freedom from coma results It’s hardly doable to enhance this wonderful optical efficiency by stopping down
From the Producer
Within the M-System, the 35 mm lenses are the preferred . The mix of average huge angle traits paired with pure dimensions makes this focal size versatile.
The optical design of the Leica Summilux-M 35mm/f1.4 ASPH has bee optimised for the use with both the digital Leica M cameras or the standard analogue cameras for gorgeous outcomes. Specifically, this lens reveals its full potential with the Leica M9.
