Compact new 35mm f/2 from Leica

Posted on Mar 4, 2021

Leica has announced the arrival of its most compact lens to date, the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH

The fast prime is able to correct optical flaws such as chromatic aberration and distortion almost entirely, thanks to its highly effective anti-reflective coatings. There’s also high edge-to-edge contrast rendition and especially pronounced bokeh wide open and beyond, thanks to the eleven-blade, near-circular construction. In addition, the large 300° turning focus ring allows for precise focusing, despite the close focusing distance.


Leica 35mm f/2

This compact and lightweight lens delivers strong performance at a classic reportage focal length, and can be used on any current or future model of the M Series, Leica SL2 and SL2-S.

The Leica APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH is available to purchase now at Leica retail stores, as well as online, at an RRP of £6,700.
