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

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.

Leica M10-R camera coming next, already registered with the FCC (pictures included)


If you are a regular LeicaRumors reader, you probably remember my post from May last year where I reported about a new Leica M10X camera with a 47MP sensor rumored for 2020. I guess I was wrong on the "X" part, but I was still correct on the "Resolution" portion - Leica recently registered a new Leica M10-R camera with the FCC and I think the "R" in the name stays for "Resolution". Here are a few pictures of the new camera:

What others are saying


42 West - "New Leica M10 Monochrom: Where Modern Design Meets History":

The most critical spec one really needs to understand is that in this digital monochrome camera, every single pixel is dedicated to monochromatic information rather than in other cameras where pixels are divided into RGB and black and white information. For me, the increase in megapixels is more about the ability to control and maintain information in the highlights, deep in the mid-tones, and solid blacks, rather than boast about the ability to render something “sharper” or more “accurate.”
