The Leica Summilux-SL 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. will be launched in January 2017
The Leica Summilux-SL 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is the first prime lens for the Leica SL-System and sets a new standard on the market. Its large maximum aperture makes the high-performance lens the ideal partner in situations with challenging lighting conditions and enables the use of shallow depth of focus as a creative tool. Fast, precise and reliable autofocusing guarantee that photographers can concentrate fully on composition and creativity rather than on the search for optimum sharpness. The imaging performance of the lens fulfils the most stringent standards. Particularly when shooting at maximum aperture, the combination of its resolving power and soft bokeh in unsharp areas clearly isolates subjects from their surroundings. Thanks to uniform contrast rendition throughout the focusing range, this applies at all distance settings.
