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 ASPH. certainly continues this tradition. Its extraordinary optical performance places the new addition in a league of its own – even among M lenses. With a close-focusing distance that is notably short for the M-System, exceptionally sharp rendition, distinctive bokeh and great 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.

A closer look.

The APO-Summicron-M 35 f/2 ASPH. quite literally goes one step further, by facilitating true close-up shots. Its minimum focusing distance of just 30 centimeters 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 rotational throw of 300°, giving ample range for extremely precise focusing even throughout 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!”
