The Leica SUMMILUX-M 21 mm f1.4 ASPH is the first and only 21mm small camera lens with this lens speed. The outstanding image quality, very large image angles and compact dimensions make the Leica SUMMILUX-M 21 mm f/1.4 ASPH a particularly versatile performer. At full aperture, the depth of field (DOF) is extremely shallow.
As a result, in close-ups the main subject can be separated effectively from the background to create very expressive photographs. At a medium stop, the focal range is so great that entire scenes can be reproduced sharply. Because of the floating element, the very high resolution is retained even in the close-up range. Vignetting and distortion are both corrected excellently for a lens of this speed.
The Leica Summilux-M lenses have wide application potential, thanks to the combination of wide-angle characteristics with ultra-high speed
Extremely shallow field depth at full open aperture allows the main subject in close focus shots to be effectively detached from the background. Stopped down to medium values, the field depth range is so great that entire landscapes will be depicted in sharp focus
With "floating elements", the superb performance is kept even at close focal distances
Vignetting and distortion are hardly noticeable in practice
Equipped with a patented, rectangular metal lens hood that accommodates series VIII (21 mm) filter mounts
Use of regular polarizing filters, size E82 (21mm) is possible with special filter adapters
