Outstanding View

19 October 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is a definite choice for a first lens for the Leica experience. The 35mm view is a must for street photography and photojournalism/documentary. Considering the price difference from this version to the other more expensive 35mm options form Leica this lens holds its own.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: An excellent addition for the street photographer especially with an M9. The optics and resultant picture quality is equivalent to more expensive 35mm lens of same make although the focusing is not as smooth.

My favorite lens

Andrew, B&H Photo
2 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this on both an M8.2 and M6 and it is by far my favorite lens. On the M6 (or any full-frame digital M) this lens is sharp from corner to corner once stopped down to f/4, but on the M8 with its crop (46mm equivalent) it is tack-sharp everywhere even wide open. Bokeh is smooth and equally important is the smoothness of the transition from in to out of focus. This lens is simply a delight.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Sharp, Smooth Rendering
  • Cons: Hood Doesn't Lock In Plac, Hood Not Included

A pretty good lens

Jason Pachman, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This lens is a terrific starter lens. The 35 mm focal length gives you a great deal of versatility. You can shoot street scenes and landscapes with equal ease. As far as Leica lenses go this one is relatively speaking one of their "budget" lenses but you get a good deal of quality with it. I preferred it to my Zeiss 35 mm Biogon which I had owned for a longer period of time.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Small

My First Leica Glass

JPix, B&H Photo
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Having the M6 and now the M8.2, cost forced me acquire and shoot with the Zeiss 50 1.5. Not a bad lens but I had always wanted to experience what I was missing with Leica glass. The fast Summilux and Summicron lenses were at the top of my list but the price has kept those out of my reach. That being said I initially felt like I was settling on this little Summarit... NOT SO!
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: lens hood not included
