The new Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH in Silver Anodized Finish is optically and mechanically identical to the black chrome version, and weighs the same thanks to its aluminum construction. 35 mm lenses are the most popular in the M-System. Their mixture of moderate wide angle characteristics paired with natural dimensions make this focal length extremely versatile. Often, it is the first choice on a new M camera, and therefore many famous pictures have been taken with a 35 mm lens.
The Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a further revised version of this popular wide-angle lens for the Leica M rangefinder system. Thanks to the latest developments in the fields of optics and precision engineering, the new 35mm lens sets a whole new standard in the fast wide-angle lens portfolio. Whether it’s a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, high-contrast available light applications or landscape shots with immense depth of field, the lens delivers persuasive arguments in any situation.
In comparison with its predecessor, the new Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. now incorporates a floating element: the lenses behind the aperture blades are constructed as a floating group that changes its position relative to the front lens group during focusing to ensure that the Leica Summilux-M 1:1.4/35 mm ASPH. achieves outstanding imaging performance at closer focusing distances.
Another new feature is a full-metal, rectangular, screw-mount lens hood that contributes significantly to the compact dimensions of the lens.
The optical design of the Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. has also been optimized for use on the digital Leica M models. It reveals the full extent of its outstanding performance particularly when mounted on a full format digital M body. The Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. also delivers excellent results on analogue M models and is destined to become an indispensable component of every M system outfit.
Even wide open, the Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. reveals performance characteristics without precedent in the field of compact 35 mm lenses: outstanding imaging performance over the entire focus range, from infinity to minimum focus; excellent contrast, even in the finest structures; superb rendition of detail across the entire image field; good field flattening and, stopped down to f/2 and onward, almost complete freedom from coma effects. It is almost impossible to improve this excellent optical performance by stopping down.
