Leica 11671 overview

  • 1Description

Balancing a compact size with a comfortable focal length, the black Summarit-M 35mm f/2.4 ASPH. Lens from Leica is a standard wide-angle prime well-suited for everyday walk-around use. Its optical design features one aspherical element to control distortion for improved sharpness, and high refractive index glass with anomalous partial dispersion is also used to minimize color fringing and chromatic aberrations. Its manual focus design allows working with subjects as close as 2.6' away and a nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality for shallow depth of field shooting.

One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness.
High refractive index glass with anomalous partial dispersion is used to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved color accuracy and clarity.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.6' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:20.4.
The front of the lens has 46mm-diameter threads to accept optional filters and the lens is male threaded to accept the included lens hood.

    Leica 11671 reviews

    Summarit-M 35mm f/2.4 ASPH. Lens (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding new Summarit-M f/2.4 35mm design & performance I debated going with either the new Summarit f/2.4 verses the previous f/2.4 lens in the 35mm range, tested both, and even tried the compatible Zeiss options. I chose the new f/2.4 Summarit after reviewing reports about the new lens design, subtle external lens changes, the included metal lens hood, and the ASPH designation. I am really happy with the lens and for having gone with the latest version. The 35mm f/2.4 Summarit-M lens is compact, extremely well-built, sharp and contrasty, and the aperture and focus rings move so smooth. I am very please with my images and can see the 35mm f/2.4 becoming my M262's main lens. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised at how much I love this lens... This has become my goto lens for B&W photography at this focal length. I use it on my Leica M Monochrom more than the 35MM Summilux FLE--simply because i love that way the little Summarit render tonality, sharpness, and its wonderful transition from sharp to soft. The new Summarit is also a small piece of jewell art--much better made than the original F/2.4, with a beautifully machined lens hood and a cap that very much resembles the cap found on the much more expensive 50MM APO Summicron. The Summilux FLE gets all the mystique, but if one is looking for a very compact and wonderfully executed sample of Leica's art, then the 35 Summarit is a no brainer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic lens Small, well constructed, lightweight, with smooth action in the focus and aperture rings. Image quality is first rate. Super sharp with extremely high contrast. Unlike most of Leica's chrome lenses, this one seems to be chrome plated aluminum rather than chrome plated brass, which contributes to its light weight, but the lens does not suffer for it. The included metal lens hood and cap are teriffic and look great. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful lens at a good price for Leica wonderful lens at a good price for Leica. Well constructed. Its not as fast as the more expensive lenses, but for my uses, its just fine. there is vignetting at the margins, as is to be expected. I am very happy with this as a go-to street photography ready lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very fine lens and it may be the one for you. I bought this lens to pair with my Leica M-A a film camera. My intent was to have a lightweight lens providing good contrast and easy handling. This lens does all of that, but it also does a lot more. It's a tele-centric design - which works exceptionally well with digital sensors, so not only does it work great (wonderful contrast, subtle transitions and sharp) on film, but will work equally well on a M9/M240/M262 digital body since the design optimizes light gathering for the digital sensor - minimizing CA and other distortions. That gives you essentially a dual use lens that's perfectly suited for film or digital imaging. Added bonus - included metal hood (screws onto lens for perfect alignment), and a short throw for focusing using the well placed integrated focus grip, and a metal lens cover that's felt lined! A lot to like for a very reasonable price. If you shoot digital the f/2.4 aperture will be fine - just adjust your ISO for the lighting conditions. The only caveat is if you shoot in very low light, in which case a larger aperture (Summilux/Summicron) may be what you need. Before you make that decision, consider how often will you shoot wide open in poor light, and how much do you want to carry a far heavier lens all of the time. I shoot mainly in good light, and apertures of f/5.6-f8.0. At that aperture there's no benefit, for me, of having a faster lens, a big benefit in having a lighter lens. The Summarit lens is tiny, and it doesn't block any of the finder, unlike the Summilux which blocks a good portion of the finder, and the Summicron, which blocks less of the finder, but is still visible when composing. Take a chance on the Summarit - you'll be glad you did. And it's an ASPH design! You'll read some comments suggesting that the bokeh on the 35mm Summarit lens isn't ideal. I respectfully disagree, and also note that for most of us we are looking for depth of field on a 35mm lens, not bokeh. If you're looking to shoot wide open for bokeh, I suggest that maybe a 50mm FL is a better choice. Finally, you can buy Summarit 35mm/50mm and 75mm lenses for a few dollars more than the cost of one Summilux 35mm lens. Now ask yourself how often will you need that 1.5 stop faster lens?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me. This lens rarely comes off my M240. I appreciate the compact size, quality craftmanship, and the image quality; it is perfect for me.
