Wide-angle 28mm prime designed for full-frame and 35mm Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras.
Notably fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords control over depth of field and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
One double-sided aspherical element and three high refractive index elements are used to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to achieve greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements control color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize improved color accuracy and clarity.
Individual elements feature a multi-layer coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3' away.
Engraved focus distance and depth of field scales benefit working with pre-focus and hyperfocal focusing techniques.
Rounded 13-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Great quality lens. Needed no focus adjustment. Amazing low light photos. You see a portion of the lens in the finder but not enough to create a problem. I use it on my Leica M8 renewed my interest in shooting.

This lens is for anyone looking for a slightly wider view and it didnt disappoint.  Its also a piece of mind that you can abuse this lens and feel like you have to protect it with your life at every corner.  Heres my quick point: Pros: -robust build quality  -price point -great contrast with black and white  -leica like appearance -excellent bokeh -short focus throw cons: -sticks out -heavy -missing f11 (no click) -soft corners at f1.4-f2 -some flaring (hood must purchase seperately)

Optics Good, Build Quality need improvement

The lens is very sharp wide open. The corner sharpness is good after f2.8. The only drawback is the weight, a little unbalance on the m body.   7artisans need a polished lens mount. The lens mount is so sharp that may damage your camera mount and rangefinder system.  PS: BH shipping is not well packaged, the box was dented after I receive.

Excellent, fast, wide - but heavy

Excellent quality - havent subjected it to laboratory testing, but it does what it says on the label. Only objection is that its quite heavy - about as heavy as the leica elmarit-m 135mm f/2.8.

Bang for the buck!

Quality lens at an affordable price. Would recommend. 28mm has become the new 35mm for many applications in the Leica M system.

Good for its price, big, heavy, and false 1.4

By Jin

The lens is sharp for its price (not as sharp as the CV 35 1.7), really well built, renders fairly creamy bokeh. The biggest issue is that this lens is not a true 1.4, when I measured the light, it is more of a f1.7, the lens is very heavy and big. Since 1.7 is more of a summicron than a summilux, this sounds a lot less impressive. I feel slightly offended when manufacturers falsely claim the aperture size.

Yes, the 7artisans Photoelectric 28mm f/1.4 Lens for Leica M, is compatible with the Leica M5. The exposure meter's mechanical arm is retracted by depressing the shutter release button, and it won't be in the way.
