One of the most versatile lenses available for Leica M-mount rangefinders, the silver Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a general wide-angle lens characterized by its sophisticated optics and bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. The fast lens is well-suited for available light photography and also affords greater control over depth of field for selective focus shooting. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element to control spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and clarity, and a floating elements system is used to maintain performance throughout the focusing range.

Versatile general wide-angle prime features a bright, fast f/1.4 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light conditions and for greater control over depth of field.
One aspherical element controls spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness.
Floating elements system achieves consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, even at the minimum focusing distance of 2.3'.
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.

    Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens (Silver) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have used Leica's 35mm f/2.5 Summarit and 50mm f/2 Summicron for the last three years and have always been happy with them on my M Monochrom, but when I bought the Leica M-E last year, I longed for f/1.4 for available light shooting as the M-E (M9) falls apart above ISO 1250. Last year the 50 Summicron was replaced with a new Summilux, and last month the 35 Summarit was replaced with the 35 Summilux. All I can say is that these lenses give a lot more than just more speed. Sharpness, contrast, color and bokeh are just on a whole other level with the modern aspherical lenses, and this 35mm is, at least in my bag, the best of the lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the wait It took me almost a year to obtain one of these lenses. It has not disappointed me. I find the 50 Summilux and the 75 Summicron to be the best Leica portrait lenses, and they are a joy to use. The 90 Summicron is at least equally good optically, but is significantly harder to focus. I think this 35 is the closest you are going to get to the image quality of the 50 Summilux, if you want a slightly wider focal length. The bokeh isn't quite as surreal as the 50 and 75 can produce, but it's still wonderful. The newly-designed shade is great, unlike the shade that comes with the 28 Cron, which I often don't use because it's so large. This lens actually stays on my M9 more than any other lens now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gold Standard I doubt I'm adding much new here, but the 35 Lux is really the gold standard for the 35mm focal length. I love 50mm! I shoot it a lot! But the 35 Lux is just so useful in almost any situation. There is a reason why the 35 focal length is the most common focal length on point and shoots. The versatility is tremendous. This lens is fast, renders color and contrast like nothing else and is an all around great investment. I was pleasantly surprised by this lens and can't recommend it enough!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! Wish aperture ring was better. I'd give it 4.5 stars...but could not vote fractions. Wide open it is very doable fpr documentary uses. But closed down 2 to 3 stops and it is excellent. Only complaint is the aperture ring is kind of loose.When street shooting the Leica ring gets moved easily. I much prefer the Zeiss aperture ring. Also, not a big fan of the giant Leica focus knob. This photo of The Lucky Chops was taken wide open at 1.4 with the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens on a Leica Monochrom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ITS A LEICA! If you have a Leica rang finder this lens is a must. Of all the lens I have this is the lens that I use the most. It defines words like sharp, and fast. The Bokeh is constant and dream like. Like all Leica products its built like a tank. Once again you get what you pay for this lens will truly last a life time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the must have lens for an M This is simply the best lens I have ever used. Its razor sharp, built incredibly well, and has a simply incredible look when paired with a Leica M9 or film Leica. I bought the 50 Summilux ASPH as well, but I find that the 35 stays on my camera 90 percent of the time. Its the perfect length for a rangefinder system. While expensive, I have found this lens to be well worth the wait and the money invested.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A thing of beauty I'm using the lens on a Sony A7R with Metabones adapter. While the native 55 Zeiss FE lense is nothing short of phenomenal (albeit it could be faster), the 35mm f/2.8 really struggles with handheld shots in low light. I returned that lens, tried the Voigtlander Nokton Classic f/1.4 first (not good, super blurred full wide), then resolved to go all in with the Leica. The Summilux 35mm is an unbelievable performer, especially when coupled with Sony's focus peaking and live view zoom. Tack sharp, easy to focus, a compelling combination with the Sony A7R. The aperture ring could be a bit stiffer, the hood is not exactly sexy, the price is not for the faint of heart. Other than that, I find myself shooting 70% of the time with the Summilux, the rest with the native 55mm Zeiss. It passes the test of pixel-peeping a 36MP picture shot wide open, while delivering a creamy bokeh and faithful color rendition. The size with adapter is similar to the Zeiss 55mm, and considerably smaller than the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm Asph f/1.2, the only viable alternative. Bottom line, if price is not an issue, the Summilux is the best 35mm option out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens is sharp edge to edge. This lens is good for a variety of shooting situations. Very sharp. It's small and easily carried through crowds or on daylong hikes. It's quite good for landscapes with great depth of field when set at small apertures. Subject's details have contrast and images are suitable for printing.
