The NEW SL-Lenses / Three prime lenses and a zoom !

Posted by: Classic Connection


The NEW SL-Lenses  A brilliant outlook for 2017 !!

The new 35 mm, 75 mm and 90 mm Summicron prime lenses reflect the latest advancements in the development of lens technology for the Leica SL, with lighter and more compact construction, coupled with improved optical design. Not only do these new lenses exceed the exceptional imaging performance of the first generation of SL-Lenses, but they also offer a considerably shorter closest focusing distance.

The new Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35 mm f/3.5-4.5 ASPH. ultra-wide zoom expands the existing portfolio of SL zoom lenses. For landscapes and architecture, shooting at events, concerts or weddings, or even for reportage and documentary work: the enormous versatility of this lens makes it the ideal companion whatever and wherever you shoot and – thanks to its dust and weather-sealed construction – even in the most challenging and adverse photographic conditions.

Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75 mm f/2 ASPH.: Available from summer of 2017
Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90 mm f/2 ASPH.: Available from autumn 2017
Leica Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16-35 mm f/3,5-4,5 ASPH.: Available from winter 2017

  • Most compact M-Lens, with an overall length of about 3/4” (less than 2cm) is unobtrusive and ideal for street photography
  • Provides unmistakable imaging signature which otherwise cannot be reproduced by digital means
  • Through its combination of large depth of field, natural contrast, excellent rendition of details, and visible vignetting, the Summaron-M gives images a unique character, reminiscent of analog photography
  • Combination of a clearly laid out depth of field scale and long focus throw allows precise and easy zone focusing
  • Depth of field scale is colored in red
  • Assembled by hand from top quality materials and finished in Silver Chrome
  • Made in Germany and delivery scope includes metal lens hood and cap.
  • The design and manufacturing process of the metal lens hood has ben recreated to match the original Summaron lens. It is first machined from solid brass and then given its ultimate form by a turning and bending process.
  • Pre-Order with a 10% down payment.
