Image Quality Guarantee ‧ Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH

Accumulating years of experience, Leica is able to keep enhancing the optical design of its lenses. After Leica stopped the production of Summicron-M 35mm f/2 IV 7-element in 1996, Leica introduced Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH with optical design of 7 elements in 5 groups and an aspherical surface. The advantages of high image quality, fast and lightweight allow it to become the best Leica M 35mm f/2 lenses in the aspect of lens-making technique.

Black paint, black chrome, silver chrome and titanium chrome versions can be found in the market. A silver chrome special edition with screw mount was only made in 1999 and only sold in Japan. The special edition can work on screw-mount and M camera with adapter. As the special edition was especially made for screw-mount cameras, the minimum distance is only 1m but that of a normal M mount lens is 0.7m. In addition, a special platinum version was made for Leica M6 “150 Jahre Optik” limited platinum edition.

Introducing an aspherical surface into 7-element, the image clarity and colour accuracy are enhanced. It shows obvious improvement in contrast, resolution and vignetting, allowing more brilliant image performance. Adjusting the aperture to between f/2.8 and f/4 is able to get the best image.

Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH released currently was built with 6-bit coding for Leica M digital cameras to read, identify and record the lens model.

The image has high contrast and the position where the light projects is very clear and vivid.

The colour accuracy in colour photo is enhanced. The image is very sharp with tattoo pattern shown in great detail.

The image performance is very brilliant with rich and obvious layer of black, white and grey. The colour tone is peaceful, soft and beautiful.
