Show More
Pairing a favored focal length with a bright maximum aperture for flexible control, the black Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH Lens is a standard wide-angle prime that is prized for image quality and refined optical design. Comprised of seven elements in five groups, and incorporating a single aspherical element, this lens eliminates nearly all distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the focusing range. This design also contributes to a high degree of sharpness, contrast, and clarity, and the f/2 maximum aperture enables working in difficult lighting conditions with ease. Additionally, an 11-blade aperture contributes to smooth out-of-focus rendering when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. Despite its wide-angle focal length and fast maximum aperture, this manual focus lens still remains relatively compact to benefit its use as an everyday, go-to lens for M shooters.

Will there be any degradation in image quality if you use a metabone Leica M to E mount adapter and shoot on a Sony A72 body?

question

How does one attach a filter if the lens hood is in place on this lens?
Asked by: Frank
The lens hood uses a separate set of threads for mounting. Because space is limited, unscrew the hood prior to mounting/unmounting filters, then replace the lens hood. Can be used with polarizer filters just as easily.
