- Technical Specs
35 mm lenses are the most popular in the M-System. Their mixture of moderate wide angle characteristics paired with natural dimensions make this focal length extremely versatile. Often, it is the first choice on a new M camera, and therefore many famous pictures have been taken with a 35 mm lens.
The Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is a further revised version of this popular wide-angle lens for the Leica M rangefinder system. Thanks to the latest developments in the fields of optics and precision engineering, the new 35mm lens sets a whole new standard in the fast wide-angle lens portfolio. Whether it’s a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, high-contrast available light applications or landscape shots with immense depth of field, the lens delivers persuasive arguments in any situation.
More compact, higher performanceMore compact, higher performanceIn comparison with its predecessor, the new Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. now incorporates a floating element: the lenses behind the aperture blades are constructed as a floating group that changes its position relative to the front lens group during focusing to ensure that the Leica Summilux-M 1:1.4/35 mm ASPH. achieves outstanding imaging performance at closer focusing distances.Another new feature is a full-metal, rectangular, screw-mount lens hood that contributes significantly to the compact dimensions of the lens.The optical design of the Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. has also been optimized for use on the digital Leica M models. It reveals the full extent of its outstanding performance particularly when mounted on a full format digital M body. The Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. also delivers excellent results on analogue M models and is destined to become an indispensable component of every M system outfit.Even wide open, the Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. reveals performance characteristics without precedent in the field of compact 35 mm lenses: outstanding imaging performance over the entire focus range, from infinity to minimum focus; excellent contrast, even in the finest structures; superb rendition of detail across the entire image field; good field flattening and, stopped down to f/2 and onward, almost complete freedom from coma effects. It is almost impossible to improve this excellent optical performance by stopping down.

Leica E46 ND 4-Stop 16x Filter, Black
Leica’s new line of neutral density filters are designed to reduce the amount of light coming through the lens by 4 stops. This allows you to significantly lengthen shutter speeds, experiment with motion blur and, for example, soften the motion of flowing water or clouds. It also makes moving persons or vehicles vanish from the scene when shooting with longer exposure times.
Alternatively, these filters allow you to shoot at wide open aperture in strong lighting conditions when otherwise the camera’s fastest shutter speed would be exceeded resulting in an overexposed image. They are manufactured to the same optical standards and with the same aluminum used in Leica M lenses.
The filters are multicoated high grade optical glass to reduce internal reflections, and are lighter than their predecessors thanks to aluminum versus brass construction. Each filter includes a 2 year Leica warranty and protective plastic case.
