Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

The brand new Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is the world's first Leica M lens to combine a maximum aperture of f/1.4 and a focal length of 28mm. The optical construction incorporates 10 elements in 7 groups, one of which is aspherical with curvature that deviates from the typical spherical form and contributes significantly to the very compact size of the lens. The focusing system features a floating element to guarantee constantly high imaging performance at close focusing distances. Three cemented elements and seven lenses with anomalous partial dispersions guarantee the extremely effective colour correction of the lens. Contrast gradation is uniform and consistent from infinity to the minimum focusing distance and is maintained with almost no loss of performance across the entire image field, the company claims. Weighing in at 440 grams, the Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. ships with an all-metal lens hood, and sells for £3,975. Availability is slated for June.

Leica Press Release

New: Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

A new milestone in the world of high-speed wide-angle lenses

With the Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH., Leica expands the lens portfolio of the Leica M-System with a new high-speed wide-angle lens. This is the first Leica M lens ever to combine an initial aperture of f/1.4 with the popular 28 mm standard focal length. This makes it ideal not only for photojournalism, but also for architecture and landscapes and in all lighting situations.

The Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. offers exceptional imaging performance over the entire focusing range, outstanding contrast rendition in even the finest structures, and excellent reproduction of details across the whole image field. The optical system features a floating element to guarantee constantly high imaging performance at close focusing distances. The lens group behind the diaphragm is designed as a floating element that changes its position relative to the front group during focusing. Three cemented elements and seven lenses with anomalous partial dispersions guarantee the extremely effective color correction of the lens. Contrast gradation is uniform and consistent from infinity to the minimum focusing distance and is maintained with almost no loss of performance across the entire image field.

The optical construction of the Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. features ten lenses, one of which is aspherical with curvature that deviates from the typical spherical form and contributes significantly to the very compact size of the lens. All this plus its low weight of only 440 grams make this lens an ideal choice for a light traveling outfit or reportage assignments.

The Leica Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is supplied complete with an all-metal lens hood. The hood not only protects the lens effectively against reduction of contrast by extraneous light but also against damage and the accumulation of dirt on the front lens element.
