- The whole lens and performance
Sheer and absolute Leica brilliance
Published on: 22 June 2020
The very high-speed and compact LEICA SUMMILUX-M 24 mm f/1.4 ASPH. gives photojournalists 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 colour imperfections requires a 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. Patented rectangular lens hoods fit Series VII filters.

Leica's lens manufacturing is designed to deliver high-performance lenses that ensure the best possible picture in any given situation. To achieve this goal, in-depth knowledge of the properties of hundreds of types of glass, the effectiveness of complex coatings, precision manufacturing, and customised fine-tuning, is imperative.
It takes decades of experience to produce perfect image quality. This, however, is nothing less than the basic requirement when our objective is to supply photographers with equipment capable of achieving pictures of unsurpassed crisp quality, colour brilliance, a fullness of detail and richness of contrast.
