APO-SUMMICRON-M 35 f/2 ASPH.

For pictures that make history.

Tradition of excellence.

Leica M lenses have always been known to be among the best in the world. The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 certainly continues this tradition. At the same time, its extraordinary optical performance places the new addition in a league of its own – even among M lenses. With a closest focusing distance that is notably short for the M-System, exceptionally sharp rendition, distinctive bokeh and high light sensitivity, this masterpiece of German engineering enables photographers to work even more creatively – not just with the Leica M, but also with the Leica SL2 and SL2-S.

The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. quite literally takes it one step further, by facilitating true close-up shots. Its minimum focusing distance of just 30 centimetres surpasses all previous M lenses. A floating lens element ensures exceptional rendition quality across the entire image at all distance settings.

The focus ring has a particularly large throw of 300°, which enables extremely precise focusing despite the extended close focus range. In conjunction with its high light sensitivity, the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. takes compositional creativity to the next level. An exceptional lens for those once-in-a-lifetime Leica moments.

Striking
portraits.

British photographer Huw John found the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. equally suited to capturing portraits. “It’s amazing how thin the depth of focus is. You get insane focus on the eyelashes, then it drops off. Looking at this 100% crop, I would swear that it could have been taken with a focal length of 85 or even 105 mm!”

Portraiture with the APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. takes on a new dimension with stylish bokeh. Add the new close focus capability and this lens becomes a real all-rounder, with beautiful colour rendition and stunning sharpness and definition. This could well be the only lens you need!”

His approach is not to actively chase his images, but to discover them through observation: once something captivates his attention, he presses the shutter.
