The Leica Summicron-M 35mm is one of the best-advanced lenses. Despite the high speed and impressive image quality, the dimensions of the case are surprisingly compact. This is due to the internal focusing principle.
Combining the optimal focal length for portrait and landscape photography with a bright maximum aperture, the Leica Summicron-M black lens is a real godsend for any professional. If you're looking for a standard wide-angle prime system, this is the model to buy. Professionals value this brand's equipment for its image quality and sophisticated design. Equally important technical advantages:
- Aperture Range: f/2 to f/16
- Weight only 255 g
- It’s based on 7 elements in 5 groups
- The minimum focus distance is 70 cm
Our Take on the Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH Lens (Black):
If you're looking for a classic prime lens for reportage photography, you are in the right place. This unique model delivers exceptional image quality. The Summicron-M has a screw-mounted, rectangular all-metal sun visor. A screw-on ring is used to protect the lens filter thread when the hood is not in use.
Despite its wide-angle focal length and large maximum aperture, this manual focus lens is compact. You won't have any problems with carrying and focusing. This means that people can use this model as an everyday lens. The manufacturer claims to be water and dust resistant.
This optical mechanism consists of seven elements in five groups. The manufacturer has added one aspherical element that eliminates all lens distortion. The same goes for spherical aberrations.
The maximum aperture of f/2 makes it easy to work in different lighting conditions. Besides, the 11-blade diaphragm contributes to smoother rendering. This feature is useful when working with selective focus. For shallow depth of field, smooth defocusing is also critical.
This new Leica Summicron-M 35mm is effective throughout the entire focusing range, and this is confirmed by many of our customers in their reviews. It's about wedding photographers, correspondents, and sports journalists.
The lens is small but heavy for its size, more or less the same as the Leica Elmarit-M 1: 2.8 / 28mm. This is likely due to the glass in the case. This new model has a protruding rear lens, so be careful when placing it on a table or rough surface. The aperture ring is smooth, with half-stop steps from f/2 to f/16. Manual focus design provides a close focusing distance of 2.3 inches. Professional photographers will be able to work with a maximum magnification ratio of 1: 17.5. The front of the lens has a 39mm thread for attaching optional filters. Order this item today to be sure it's a worthwhile model.
