Leica Summicron-M 35 f2 ASPH

The key to street photography

Maybe a small, exquisite and beautiful 35mm lens can change your view of photography, or give you a different photography style. The Leica summicron 35mm f2 asph is the key to open the door of street photography for you.

versions

The Leica Summicron lens has always been a commonly used lens for street photographers and report photographers. Before the 35mm asph version, there were already 4 versions without asph. Their optical quality was very high, far exceeding the 35mm lenses of other brands of the same era. For Leica, it seems that the only one who can surpass it is itself. In terms of optical technology, asph is superior to previous versions.

The asph version now has 2 generations. I am using the first generation of asph. It comes in two colors, a black anodized aluminum version and a silver brass chrome version. I also have a black lacquered brass version which is rarer. The second generation asph has the same optical design as the first generation, with the addition of aperture blades, and is no longer available in brass.

golden ratio

Leica’s summicron 35mm lens paired with an M camera is the most beautiful combination. I think it’s a golden pairing and my favorite combination. I don’t like to install lens hoods, I want to maintain the golden ratio of lens to camera.

shortcomings

If I want to talk about the shortcomings of this lens, I think the anti-glare ability is not that good. When backlighting or side backlighting, it is easy to produce light beams that damage the screen.
