Condition: Excellent Condition - Very slight signs of oil on three of the aperature blades.
Includes: Leica E46 UV/IR Filter
Note: This is the Non-6 Bit Coded version of the lens.
Thanks to the latest developments in the fields of optics and precision engineering, the new 35 lens sets a whole new standard in the fast wide-angle lens portfolio. Regardless of whether it's a matter of selective focus in the close-up range, highcontrast available light applications or landscape shots with immense depth of field, the lens delivers persuasive arguments in any situation. In comparison with its predecessor, the new Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. now incorporates a floating element: the lenses behind the aperture blades are constructed as a floating group that changes its position relative to the front lens group during focusing to ensure that the Leica SUMMILUX-M 1:1.4/35 mm ASPH. achieves equally outstanding imaging performance at closer focusing distances. Another new feature is a full-metal, rectangular, screw-mount lens hood that contributes significantly to the even more compact dimensions of the lens.
Even wide open, the LEICA SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH. reveals performance characteristics without precedent in the field of compact 35 mm lenses: outstanding imaging performance over the entire focusing range, from infinity to minimum focus, excellent contrast, even in the finest structures, superb rendition of details across the entire image field, good field flattening and, stopped down to f2 and onwards, almost complete freedom from coma effects. It is hardly possible to improve this excellent optical performance by stopping down.
