Leica are adding a new high-speed wide-angle to the lens catalogue of the M-System. The Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 Asph is the first Leica M lens to combine the large aperture of 1.4 with a wide-angle focal length of 28 mm – resulting in a highly distinctive image quality.
Offering exceptional sharpness in the focal plane together with a low depth of field, the lens allows subjects to be isolated from their surroundings with crystal clarity. A floating element – consisting of the lens group located behind the aperture – ensures optimal image quality when shooting at close range. During focusing, this floating group changes its position relative to the group of frontal elements.
The lens contains a total of ten elements, including an aspherical surface – whose deviation from the spherical shape greatly contributes to the lens' compact form.
The new Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 Asph weighs 440 grams. An all-metal lens hood is included.
