BH #LE11085 • MFR #11085
Leica Summilux-TL 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens (Silver Anodized)
Key Features
  • L Mount Lens/APS-C Format
  • 52.5mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Four Aspherical Elements
A classic focal length and a bright maximum aperture, the silver anodized Summilux-TL 35mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens is positioned as the reference lens for APS-C-format Leica mirrorless digital cameras. It is compatible with L mount mirrorless cameras, including all T-series models as well as SL-series cameras in APS-C crop mode, where it provides a normal-length 52.5mm equivalent focal length. The fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also avails extensive control over depth of field for selective focus applications. Additionally, the 12 elements in eight groups optical design incorporates four aspherical elements to control chromatic and spherical aberrations, and distortions, for increased clarity and sharpness. The autofocus system permits full-time manual focus override for fine-tuning your point of focus, as close as 1.3', and an inner focusing mechanism maintains the overall length of the lens during use.

When mounted on Leica SL what focal length will it provide? Will it give 35 mm at full 24 mp resolution on SL?
Asked by: Jaweed W.
No, it will give a 50mm FOV at a lower resolution. I have the Elmarit-TL 18 f/2.8 ASPH lens that I switch between my TL2 and SL2-S. When the lens is mounted to the SL2-S registers the lens as an APS-C lens, reduces the resolution, and gives a 28mm equivalent FOV. This information is visibly displayed via a small icon (that says APS-C) in the upper right hand side of the LCD. When a FF lens is mounted to the camera, a small icon says 35mm. If you happen to shoot any video on the SL bodies, this feature is pretty cool because you can use TL lens in a crop mode and capture video in super 35. For stills, the SL bodies will act as a lower resolution TL2 or CL when an APS-C L-mount lens is used. Hope this helps.
