High performance. Compact size. Ingenious Engineering.
▸ Picture quality, speed, and – particularly important for professional use – a robust construction
are the main advantages of all APO-Summicron-SL-Lenses.
▸ The APO-Summicron-SL-Lenses were designed from scratch for the mirrorless SL-System. That
means that the optical and sensor design, as well as the imaging process match perfectly to
achieve the highest quality.
▸ They offer maximum detail transfer and pure color reproduction from the center to the edges,
over all distances and all F-stop settings.
▸ Leica APO-Summicron-SL-Lenses already achieve extremely high detail contrast close to
diffraction limit, which makes them particularly suitable for the creative use of planes of
sharpness and unsharpness and the distinct isolation of subject details. Thanks to their shallow
depth of field and exceptional imaging performance, every single lens guarantees the special
look for which Leica photography is renowned.
▸ Dual Syncro Drive™ Precision autofocus: The APO-Summicron-SL-Lenses focus from infinity
to the closest focusing distance with exceptional speed and achieve absolute top performance
ratings in the demanding professional camera segment.
▸ Design “Made in Germany”: Seals on the front element, the focusing ring, and the bayonet
ensure that lenses mounted on the camera are exceptionally well protected against the ingress of
light rain and particles of dust and dirt. In addition to this, Leica AquaDura® coating provides
effective protection of the exposed surfaces of lenses against dirt and scratching for the everyday
use under the often extreme conditions of professional photography.
▸ The lens hoods of the SL-Lenses are ideally matched to each individual lens and prevent light
from the sides entering the lens. A perfectly computed lens hood is essential for maximum
contrast in every lighting situation.
▸ The Leica SL eye-detection function allows focused portraits, even when using the shallow
depth of field offered by the APO-Summicron-SL-Lenses.
