Leica Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens (L-Mount)
Key Features
  • Full-Frame | f/2 to f/22
  • Compact, Lightweight Prime
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Hydrophobe Aqua-Dura Coating
Pairing a favored focal length with a bright maximum aperture for flexible control, the black Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens from Leica is a wide-angle prime that puts image quality and refined optical design inside a compact, lightweight package. Designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras, the lens is comprised of eleven elements in nine groups, and the three aspherical elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for notable image sharpness and clarity. The lens's f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions while offering precise control over focus position for working with shallow depth of field techniques, and a quiet and precise autofocus motor benefits both stills and video capture. Well-suited for nearly any photographic application, the 14.1 oz lens owes its lighter weight to the omission of optical image stabilization, and this compact workhorse is constructed with a metal body and weather-sealing for durability and protection in harsh environments and inclement weather conditions.

What's the benefit of going for the ASPH version of the 35mm over this?
Asked by: Matt
The Leica APO-Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens has an apochromatic lens element that the Leica Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH. Lens (L-Mount) does not have. That apochromatic element decreases chromatic aberrations and increases color accuracy and clarity.
