The focal length of the Leica Summarit-S 35mm f/2.5 ASPH. delivers an angle of view equivalent to a 28mm lens for 35 mm photography (crop factor 0.8). With a maximum aperture of 1:2.5, it offers a significantly higher speed than other lenses available in the medium format segment, and provides superior imaging quality at all apertures from its closest focus setting to infinity.

Leica 35mm for landscape and architectural photographers
The Leica Summarit-S 35mm f/2.5 ASPH. satisfies the needs of landscape and architectural photographers, and is also ideal for use in the studio or out on reportage assignments. The extreme maximum aperture of the lens enables photographers to use selective focus, and is particularly effective for creative photography.

Leica Summarit S 35mm lens design
Absolute dedication to the highest imaging quality is a key factor in the design and construction of all Leica S lenses, which are built from specially formulated glass. Extremely narrow tolerances in the manufacturing process of all S-System lenses guarantee the highest performance, while vignetting, distortion and chromatic aberration are reduced to a minimum.

Leica 35mm lens delivers outstanding performance
The Leica Summarit-S 35mm f/2.5 ASPH.’s sophisticated construction with eleven elements in nine groups (incorporating two aspherical lens surfaces and five special glasses with anomalous partial dispersion) and rear group focusing ensure consistently high imaging quality from infinity to a minimum focusing distance of 55 centimetres. The lens demonstrates outstanding performance at maximum aperture, outstanding contrast in even the finest structures and excellent reproduction of details across the entire image field.
