Leica APO-Macro-Summarit-S 120mm f/2.5 Reviews

Awesome Lens

Flawless performer as a Macro as well as a fast 100mm equivalent. Amazingly sharp, fantastic bokeh, subject isolation and shallow depth of field.

Outstanding 120mm lens

The resolution is outstanding, but there is more to this lens than mere sharpness. Images show a micro-contrast, a three dimensionality that allows the viewer to literally feel the subject, to enter the image. Whether color or monochrome (B&W), the images have a draw or characteristic that is unique. The lens is extremely expensive and the images show why. While it is touted as a macro lens, it can be used for general photography as well. While it is an autofocus lens, it is extremely easy to focus manually, and I find I do so the majority of the time.
