Details: Leica 24mm f/1.4 SUMMILUX-M ASPH Wide Angle Lens for M System - USA Description The Leica 24mm f/1.4 SUMMILUX-M is very high-speed and compact lens which gives photo- journalists a new tool for their work. The lens is ideal for available light photography. Like the 21mm f/1.4, it consists of ten lenses in eight groups. Until the advent of state-of-the-art blank-press methods for aspherical lenses, it was not possible to create these new Summilux-M lenses. Hand assembled in Solms Germany, this meticulous craftsmanship also ensures long term reliability even in challenging conditions. The correction of color imperfections requires great deal of effort and to that end this 24mm lens incorporates five separate lenses with anomalous partial dispersion. As a result, vignetting and distortion, the parameters traditionally difficult to control in fast wide-angle lenses, are corrected so well that they are hardly noticeable in practice. Even at an f-stop of 2.8, in effect, only natural vignetting is present. Features The Leica Summilux-M lenses have wide application potential, thanks to the combination of wide-angle characteristics with ultra-high speed Extremely shallow field depth at full open aperture allows the main subject in close focus shots to be effectively detached from the background. Stopped down to medium values, the field depth range is so great that entire landscapes will be depicted in sharp focus With "floating elements", the superb performance is kept even at close focal distances Vignetting and distortion are hardly noticeable in practice Equipped with a patented, rectangular metal lens hood that accommodates series VII (24mm) filter mounts Use of regular polarizing filters, size E72 (24mm) is possible with special filter adapters Specifications Focal length24 mm Aperture1:1.4 For systemM-System WarrantyLeica 3 year warranty
