Expert review by:

Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH.

 

The Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. is a sharp, fast, wide-angle optic for Leica rangefinder cameras; it's expensive, but an excellent performer.

Sharp from edge to edge at f/2. Nominal distortion. Wide aperture. Fairly compact. Includes lens hood

Expensive. Close focus limited to 0.7-meter. Lens hood is huge. Manual focus only

The Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. ($4,295) is an excellent wide-angle lens for M-mount cameras. It captures images that are sharp from edge to edge at every aperture, but carries a hefty price tag. It's the best rangefinder lens that covers a...

Leica 28mm f/2 Summicron Lens

 

There's absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about the posted picture, yet some of the comments show just how emotional and fanatical that some people can get over a camera brand, to the point where any shred of objectivity or common sense has long take

To summarize the review of the Leica 28mm M-Summicron Asph, you can think of it as all you'd expect it to be: A Compact, easy to handle, fast, medium wide angle lens, of first rate optical design, that yields outstandingly superior image performance with

Having had and sold the M8 along with 35 summicron, 50 lux, and 90 elmarit, I have found the weight:quality tradeoff with a DSLR dissappointing and have returned to the upgraded M8.2 with the 28 elmarit asph. It reminds me so much of the compactness...

Consumer review by:

Leica 28mm Summicron-M f/2.0 ASPH

 

I bought the f2 28mm Summicron Aspeherical to replace a 28mm 4th version Elmarit. The Elmarit was already excellent for my work, but, given the reviews of the 28mm f2 Summicron, I assumed I would see at least a degree of improvement in results. The...

Sharp ; Eveness of apparent sharpness ; Flatness of field / Minimal distortion ; Relative compactness

Expensive ; Notably shallower depth of field compared to spherical wide-angle lens designs ; may prove limiting to close, handheld work ; My sample does not render fine detail as realistically as my 4th version 28mm Elmarit, nor as well as the 35mm f2...

Consumer review by:

Leica 28-35-50mm Tri-Elmar-M f/4 ASP

 

Terrific convenience of having three focal lengths available in one lens. Not perfect replacement for three separate primes - slow maximum aperture (though you know this before you buy the lens) and slightly ungainly handling/balance compared to...

Convenience of having three focal lengths in one package. Much quicker than changing lenses.

Occasional veiling flare at 50mm setting. Large and unbalanced lens when compared to most of the 28, 35 and 50 primes.

Leica 28mm Summicron-M f/2.0 ASPH

 

The 28mm/2 ASPH is far and away the best lens in the 24-28mm range that I have used. It is extremely sharp and relatively smooth in out of focus areas, producing excellent results in photojournalistic crowd shots of people at f/5.6 and f/8. I am blown...

Sharpness, low light and isolating capabilities, convenient focusing tab. Excellent construction.

Sometimes large flare patches occur if a bright object is just outside the frame. Hood is bulky and cuts into viewfinder frame.

Consumer review by:

Leica 28mm Summicron-M f/2.0 ASPH

 

The lens is excellent, I use it wide open, or one stop down all the time. It has NO flare, even in dimly lit interiors with bright sunlit windows in the bg. Otherwise excellent lenses (Canon, Nikon) would fail in these circumstances. At 5.6 there is...

Speed, exceptional contrast, no distortion, and most of all, remarkable resistance to flare.

Like all rangefinder lenses, close focusing is limited, but better than competing brands, such as Voightlander. Lens hood must occasionally be removed to clear lower right area in finder.

This lens is extremely sharp with excellent contrast, and is a pleasure to use.

Resolving power, contrast and ease of use.

Consumer review by:

Leica 28-35-50mm Tri-Elmar-M f/4 ASP

 

Great travel lens, especially if one prefers to minimize weight and bulk.Handling and ergonometrics outstanding. One can do critical metering at 50mm then shift to 28 or 35 quickly.

Suberb optics comparable to prime lenses at same focal lengths...sharp, brilliant with legendary Leica color rendition

f4.0 a bit slow but compensate with higher film speed. Sometimes shallower depth of field is desireable. Expensive sunshade
