Leica 11689 overview

  • 1Description

Blending an updated appearance with proven optical qualities, the black-chrome edition Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens features a unique matte black finish and red scale markings to give it a classic appearance complementary to the body finish of many of Leica's M cameras. While distinct in its outward design, the internal design retains the same design as the contemporary Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH., including the use of one aspherical element to control chromatic aberrations throughout the aperture and focusing ranges. The seven-elements-in-five-groups construction helps to nearly eliminate all distortions and produce a high degree of contrast, sharpness, and resolving power. Despite its wide-angle focal length and fast f/2 maximum aperture, this manual focus lens still remains relatively compact to benefit its use as an everyday, go-to lens for M shooters.

As part of a limited edition of 500 pieces, this black-chrome finish Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH. lens features a matte black exterior, solid brass construction, and a red-colored focusing distance scale in feet.

In addition to the unique appearance of the lens, this edition also includes a metal front lens cap as well as a metal round lens hood.
One aspherical element is incorporated within the sophisticated optical design to reduce chromatic aberrations and nearly all distortions for increased sharpness and contrast.
Fast f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:17.5.
Compact overall design is ideal for use in everyday shooting situations.
