The Leica 24mm f/1.4 Summilux-M Aspherical Lens is a wide angle lens designed for high-speed performance. The wide angle view offered by this lens makes it possible to work efficiently in cramped quarters. It adds a more dynamic feeling to close-up pictures and gives landscape photographs significantly more depth.
The lens is optimized for use with digital M cameras, and will hardly show any light falloff when set to its widest open aperture (f/1.4). But even when used with a 35mm system, stopping down to f/2.8 will lead to absolutely outstanding image quality. Its bright f/1.4 aperture allows for an extremely shallow depth of field (DOF), and at a medium f/stop, the focal range is so great that entire scenes can be reproduced sharply. Because of its floating element design, the very high resolution is retained even in the close-up range.
This lens features “6-bit” coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply a “final stage” software based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made).
While many people simply use the widest built-in finder lines when shooting this lens, you may want to consider an external viewfinder.
