Superb!

  • Excerpt: The 21 mm 1.r. is carried in my bag at all times for low-light photography along with the 50 mm .95. Both are outstanding. Amazing performance is available both indoors and out. Outrageously expensive, but not regrets. Bit heavy, but the quality of this lens is superb! No regrets.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Unique lens, poorly designed for filters.

  • Summary: Optically and mechanically superb in every way, it would be difficult to make a lens that will outperform it. Small compared to other manufacturers f1.4 lenses it is a large Leica M lens resulting in a front heavy/weighty lens on any Leica body but the resulting images make it worth the slight...

Georgeuos lens optically!!

  • Excerpt: I gave this lens 5 stars, optically it deserves it, this lens performs beautifully and balances nicely on any M body. It is sligtly heavier than most Leica lenses but small for a FF 21mm. Unfortunately Leica has handicapped this lens with regard to filters.
  • Pros: Optically excellent
  • Cons: Horrible Filter Use

Unmatched quality

  • Excerpt: I'm fairly new to photoghraphy, but I like to spoil myself with good gear. I bought the M9 and just love everything about that camera. This lens is an absolute beauty. The best color rendition, crystal clear corner to corner.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Exceptional image quality, glass quality, Leica brand and support, Low Light Photography, Total build quality
  • Cons: Maybe the price

Simply Beautiful

  • Summary: I was at first wary about buying such an expensive lens. Leica being Leica, most of the time you just have to suck it in. I'm a 1 camera 1 lens guy using a 35mm Summilux ASPH for years and I have often found myself wanting to kick the edges of the 35mm to go wider.

  • Summary: this is probably my favorite leica lens.....and i have some good ones! use not so easy or a bit time consuming, as at times i find myself looking through the magnifying eyepiece, and then through the view finder for focusing. for architecture, landscape, and even street photography, i LOVE it.

Leica 21mm 1.4 summilux aspherical

P. Halperin, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been working with this lens for only 1 week on an M9. It is without doubt one of the finest I have ever used. At f1.4, central image is extremely well detailed even at the minimum focusing distance of 0.7 meters, thanks to the floating elements.
