Leica APO-Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH lens review at DxOMark


DxOMark published their review of the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 35mm f/2 ASPH lens (Adorama | B&H) -  here is their conclusion:

Leica’s APO-Summicron-SL series appears to offer just that, and its smaller, lighter f/2 lenses are as well or better corrected than “standard” f/1.4 versions. With such an exotic optical construction, then, the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 35mm F2 ASPH has many attractive qualities, including good sharpness starting at f/2, low LCA, and almost no distortion. It’s also almost as bright as some f/1.8 lenses. All of this comes at price, though, and the $4595 ticket isn’t for the faint-hearted.

In this review, we have compared the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 35mm F2 ASPH mounted on a Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R to its closest rivals from other brands. Remember that the lenses are intended to be used on different camera systems and mounts, so the comparisons are not strictly applicable.
