The compact APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. pushes the limits of the technology to deliver uncompromising optical performance. With a minimum focusing distance that is rarely found within the M-System, the new lens provides an even greater scope for creativity.
A masterpiece of German engineering for next-level authenticity.
The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. quite literally goes one step further, by facilitating true close-up shots. Its minimum focusing distance of just 0.3m surpasses all previous M-lenses.
The exceptional performance capability is made possible by the elaborate lens design, combined with the high-precision manufacturing processes at the Leica production plant.
The ten lens elements are divided into five groups; three elements feature aspherical surfaces (one of them on both sides). Six elements are made of glasses with anomalous partial dispersion, which not only reduce chromatic aberrations to almost zero, but also provide apochromatic correction – a quality that is rarely found in lenses of this focal length.
Three aspherical surfaces and the special lens design, such as the special glass materials to realize the apochromatic correction, are leading to the highest possible image performance, an extremely close focus and a very compact housing.
The new benchmark in the M lens portfolio:
Unbeaten image quality
Easy to focus
Most compact 35mm full frame lens with
this exceptional optical performance
Closest focus distance in M lens
portfolio - up to 0.3m
