Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75mm f/2 ASPH.

The Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75mm f/2 ASPH expands the SL prime lens lineup. A versatile focal length of 75mm is ideal for many situations including street photography, portraiture and more. The razor-thin depth of field allows for a wide variety of creative effects, with superb imaging performance maintained at all apertures. A minimum focus distance of 0.5 meters makes the lens especially useful for portraits.

he APO-Summicron-SL 1: 2/75 ASPH. offers special qualities: It is compact, powerful and bright. The high light intensity opens up a number of possibilities. Motifs can be solved through the creative use of depth of field of foreground and background, and the unmistakable bokeh. Another advantage is the use of shorter shutter speeds, either to freeze fast movements or to shoot out of hand in low light. The design of the APO-Summicron-SL 1: 2/75 ASPH. represents the next step in lens development for the Leica SL system. New and extremely precise manufacturing methods and measurement techniques had to be developed for this purpose. The result is reflected not only in more compact dimensions and a significantly lower weight, but also in an excellent imaging performance. Both the resolution, color and contrast reproduction, as well as the homogeneous sharpness to the margins at all aperture settings, set new standards. In addition, there is a new and faster autofocus system with Dual Syncro DriveTM. The APO-Summicron-SL 1: 2/75 ASPH. is made up of 11 lenses with an aspherical surface. To correct the color aberrations, a very high proportion of the lenses are made of sensitive and high-quality special lenses. Their special optical property, the so-called anomalous partial dispersion, makes it possible to compensate for the chromatic aberrations introduced by the other glasses. As a result, even highlights in the picture are largely free of color edges.  

The essentials:

  • High performance in a handy format
  • Quick and quiet focusing thanks to precision autofocus system with Dual Syncro Drive TM
  • Precise production "Made in Germany" under the highest quality standards
  • Reflection and scattered light optimization through high quality coating and optimized frame geometry
  • AquaDura ® coating for dust and spray protection for use in everyday photography under extreme conditions
  • The eye detection enables sharp, pinpoint portraits, even with very shallow depth of field
  • The high detail contrast in combination with the maximum magnification of 1: 5 provides impressive images
  • L-mount bayonet

    APO 35mm, 50mm, 75mm and 90mm

    Posted by Riccardo Roscetti on Apr 5th 2020

    APO lens currently made by Leica in the SL lenses are; 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 90mm are all magnificent examples of precise engineering that delivers magical images. When shooting with a wide-open aperture, your depth of field will be very shallow, while your object is in focus; in other words, the background will be out of focus, creating an excellent backdrop for your subject this is called "Bokeh." The effect is impressive; your subject jumps off the page. I have never seen a more beautiful Bokeh then the lens engineered by Leica, one of the most famous being the 50mm F2 for the M series. Closing down the aperture, increasing your depth of field, which delivers tack-sharp images with colors that pop from one edge of the page to the other. I use the 35mm as my standard lens the different APO lenses I use depending on how close I need to be to my subject or what effect I am trying to achieve. All the APO lenses deliver incredible images with excellent detail and color separation. Also, I cannot overlook the simple fact that the APO lenses are lighter and focus faster, which makes it so much easier to handle and enjoyable to shoot.
