Leica APO-Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens (Black)
Key Features
  • Leica M-Mount Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/16
  • Apochromatic Design
  • Three Aspherical Elements
Pairing the classic wide-angle focal length with an optically refined design, the black APO-Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH. lens from Leica is a fast wide-angle prime characterized by its apochromatic designation. Six lens elements feature anomalous partial dispersion and high refractive index glass, rendering the lens capable of focusing red, green, and blue wavelengths at the same plane in order to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations. In addition, three aspherical elements with a total of four aspherical surfaces are incorporated to reduce spherical aberrations, providing edge-to-edge sharpness.

How well does this lens work with the macro-adapter-m, given the shorter 30cm focal distance?
Asked by: Eric
We anticipate that it will most likely work, but it might bring the point of focus VERY close to the front of the lens. And if it gets so close it can be really hard to work with, where you start blocking your light source unless it comes in from a very particular angle. Hope this helps.
