LeicaLeica Summicron-M f/2 28 mm ASPH. lens : Leica lenses are noted for a special character that cannot be described in terms of technical parameters alone. Not only do they allow photographers to create works of art, the design of their optical system is a work of art in itself. No wonder that lenses are the crucial factor: only the right lens can make a camera a first-class tool. The Leica Summicron-M f/2/28 mm ASPH. lens is the ideal choice for available-light and reportage photography with the Leica M8. It is a powerful and compact wide-angle lens offering superlative image-capturing performance. Due to its excellent light-gathering power, it produces convincing results in difficult light situations, especially during the twilight hours or in dimly lit rooms.

This outstanding optical performance is exploited to its fullest capabilities when the lens is coupled with the digital Leica M8. The focal length extension factor turns the optics into a 35 mm standard lens. The imaging performance of the Leica Summicron-M f/2 28mm ASPH. lens is very impressive at f 2. The detail rendering and brilliance are remarkable, clearly and demonstrably superior in every way. Even in critical lighting situations such as backlight exposures, disturbing reflections and stray light are practically eliminated. Its 75° angle of view gives it enough field coverage for lively, involving reportage shots.

Leica Summicron-M 28mm wide angle lens
“In modern photography, the classic 28 mm wide-angle lens is now seen almost as a normal universal lens. Reportage, travel photography, industry, people, tourism, landscapes, advertising - in many photographic genres, more than half of all photographs are taken with this focal length. It is therefore important for a 28 mm lens to feature high speed and high corner-to-corner imaging quality, even at full aperture. Another key criterion is excellent distortion correction - straight lines must not appear curved in the photo. All these specifications are particularly well met by the Leica Summicron-M 28mm ASPH. lens,“ says Kornelius Müller, Commercialization Director at Leica Camera AG. “A Leica M equipped with this lens delivers an imaging quality that is not achieved by any other 35 mm camera system. Its resolving power is far better than that of the best color photo films. It is a top-class, compact, high-performance documentary tool, such as is not available for 35 mm SLR cameras,” adds Kornelius Müller.

Leica Summicron 28mm ASPH. lens - Glass elements
The Leica Summicron-M 28 mm ASPH. consists of nine elements in six component groups. Three of these elements are made of high-refraction glass and three others of glass with partial anomalous dispersion. One element has an aspherical surface, which is a key contribution towards the extremely compact design. This, and the low weight of only 270 grams, makes it ideal for traveling light or for professional use in adverse conditions during reportage work.

Leica Summicron M 28mm f/2 lens
Like all Leica lenses, the Leica Summicron-M 28mm ASPH. lens was designed by Leica optics specialists to represent an ideal blend of optical and technical expertise. The Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH. is a particularly reliable and long-lasting product made of high-quality materials, meticulously assembled by Leica experts in Germany. The combination of state-of-the-art technology and legendary craftsmanship ensures the unrivaled quality of every single Leica lens.
