- Technical Specs
The newly developed Leica Summilux-TL is the new reference lens for APS-C format and has performance characteristics that are unequaled in all respects by comparable lenses and permit the exploitation of the full potential of modern camera systems. Thanks to internal focusing, the overall length of the lens remains unchanged when focusing.
Normal-length prime lens is designed for APS-C-format L mount mirrorless cameras, where it will provide a 52.5mm equivalent focal length. It is compatible with all Leica T cameras, as well as SL cameras when working in APS-C crop mode.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits shooting in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over focus position for using shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Four aspherical elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy.
Autofocus system can be manually overridden at any time for fine-tuned control. Additionally an inner focusing mechanism maintains the overall lens length during operation and also does not rotate the front 60mm filter mount, benefitting the use of polarizers or graduated filters.

Leica E60 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.
