LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35 F/1.4 ASPH.
The new Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH in Black Chrome Finish is optically and mechanically identical to the Silver Anodized 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. Whether it is a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, high-contrast available-light applications or landscape shots with immense depth of field, this lens performs wonderfully in any situation.
More compact, higher performance
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.
Often, it is the first choice on a new M camera, and therefore many famous pictures have been taken with a 35 mm lens.
