Leica Summicron-M overview

  • 1Description

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.

One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and clarity.
Bright 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.
The front of the lens has 39mm-diameter threads to accept optional filters and the lens is male threaded to accept the included lens hood.

    Leica Summicron-M reviews

    Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH Lens (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lens I have not taken this lens off for over a month now and it is my go to lens. I have the Summilux-M 1:1.4/50mm ASPH which is a great lens too, but the 35mm seems to fit every occasion. It is compact in size and the construction with the metal hood and the smooth focus ring makes for a great lens. Low light is not a problem and I can shoot wide open in bright light without exceeding the 4,000 per second max.speed under most situations. I was lucky in being able to get this lens at B&H as there was a waiting list. When they become available one should get this lens. B&H is the only place I shop for camera gear and their service has always been great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One fabulous lens! I directly compared this lens to the most recent 35mm f2.4 Summarit lens. The comparison was made using an M246 Monochrom body. The Summarit is an incredible lens and is less expensive. However, its rendering is different--a bit more clinical in my opinion. The Summicron is an equally incredible lens but has, what I consider, a more classical rendering, which I ultimately preferred. IMO, you will not be disappointed with either lens taking black and white images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all-around Choice This lens is small and very light weight, but solid with a lens hood that I really like. It is a good all around lens for travel and daily use. I do not think that it has the optical quality of the Summicron - M 28mm f/2, which I think is a better choice.
