A wide, fast prime designed for Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras, the silver anodized Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens excels in low-light conditions and is also characterized by its consistent sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture and focusing ranges. One aspherical element and a floating elements system, as well as seven elements made from anomalous partial dispersion glass, help to produce color-correct, sharp imagery with minimal distortion and aberrations. The manual focus design of the lens is aided by a focusing tab for critical control and the fast f/1.4 also lends itself to selective focus control for isolating specific subjects within the frame. Featuring a versatile wide-angle focal length with a sophisticated optical design, the Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH. rounds out the full set of fast-aperture primes dedicated to offering the utmost in imaging capabilities.
This silver anodized version of the lens is available in a limited edition of 300 units.
Wide-angle prime is well-suited to everyday shooting as well as landscape, reportage, and architectural applications.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
One aspherical element helps to control spherical aberrations and distortions at all aperture and focus positions for improved sharpness, even illumination, and reduced vignetting.
Seven anomalous partial dispersion elements and three cemented elements suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations and contribute to natural color rendering and high contrast imagery.
Floating elements system maintains consistent image quality throughout the focusing range.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:21.9.
