The Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a further revised version of the popular wide-angle lens of the Leica M rangefinder system. Thanks to the latest developments in the fields of optics and precision engineering, the new 35 lens sets a whole new standard in the fast wide-angle lens portfolio. Regardless of whether it's a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, highcontrast 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 equally outstanding imaging performance at closer focusing distances. Another new feature is a full-metal, rectangular, screw-mount lens hood that contributes significantly to the even more compact dimensions of the lens.

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 focusing range, from infinity to minimum focus, excellent contrast, even in the finest structures, superb rendition of details across the entire image field, good field flattening and, stopped down to f2 and onwards, almost complete freedom from coma effects. It is hardly possible to improve this excellent optical performance by stopping down.

One nice lens


from WA  -  Semi-Professional

Nice lens. Wide-open shooting is no problem for this lens so far. I am still holding on to my Summicron as it is quite a bit lighter. I haven't seen any noticeable difference in sharpness.

Nice lens. But I prefer the Summicron


from Birmingham, AL  -  Pro Photographer

Stiff focus and loose aperture ring. After comparing the Summilux to the 35 Summicron. I feel the Summicron is best.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Roland D  Do you think the f1.4 makes a big difference over the f2.0 for a Leica lens in the 35mm?
RICHARD N  Short version: no. Long version: no, unless you shoot indoors and low light A LOT. I had used both, still prefer the 'lux for its image rendering, but the 'cron is the all around versatility champ, and the no 1 choice for working journalists around the world.
Shopper  when can I buy it?
NUTTAWAT W  This lenses should be the first one or 50mm one for your Leica M camera.
