Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4

Leica looks back on more than 150 years of experience in optical design. Since then, numerous legendary lenses have been introduced, setting photographicstandards and redefining what istechnically possible.

Oneof these iconic lensesreturns today: The Leica Summilux-M 35 f/1.4.

The Leica Summilux-M 35 f/1.4. was the world’s fastest wide-angle lens in 1961, distinguished by its compactness while also being extremely light, weighing only 7.05 ounces. Furthermore, this lens provided new creative opportunities with its unique image rendering.

Photographing with a wide-open aperture creates pictures with an especially soft, almost magical bokeh. Its extraordinary rendering earned the Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 the title of “True King of Bokeh”. Photographing at maximum aperture in backlit conditions creates intended lens flares that can be used for specific artistic effects. When stopping down past f/2.8, it produces very sharp and particularly distortion-free pictures which meet modern requirements for image quality.

The new edition is made in the original vintage design and with the identical optical calculation of the first Summilux-M 35 f/1.4. Additionally, the stainless-steel front ring known as “Steel Rim”, the lockable focus ring and the black attachable lens hood are also modelled after the original. What is new, however, is the second round lens hood with E46 thread which enables the use of filters,alsoincluded withthis lens.

Stainless Steel Front Ring
