Leica 35mm f/2.5 Summarit

Available Today

The Leica 35mm f/2.5 Summarit-M Lens offers traditional Leica optical and mechanical excellence, while positioned at a price level below the current M ASPH lenses. With a maximum aperture of f/2.5, and by applying classical and proven spherical lens designs, these lenses provide excellent quality in a very compact design. The 9-bladed circular aperture creates a shallow depth-of-field that brings attention to the subject and blurs the background, which is ideal for portraits and weddings.

This lens has been updated with the “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).

If you’re willing to give up a bit of aperture and have f/2.5 as your maximum, the Summarit gives you the opportunity to have a remarkably sharp (even wide open), very small and discrete, and reasonably priced 35mm lens. I’m willing to trade the aperture most of the time, which makes this a constant companion. You won’t be able to work the the very narrow depth of field the wider aperture lenses offer, but in many cases that’s not the goal. In those situations this lens performs superbly.
