This fast wide-angle lens is especially compact and its imaging performance is outstanding at f/2.

The LEICA SUMMICRON-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH. is the ideal choice for reportage photography with the LEICA M8.

It is a powerful and compact wide-angle lens delivering outstanding picture quality. Due to its excellent light-gathering power it is particularly versatile, producing particularly convincing results in difficult light situations, in twilight or in dimly lit rooms. This optical performance is further enhanced when the lens is coupled with the digital LEICA M8. The focal length extension factor turning the optics into a 35 mm standard lens.

The imaging performance of the LEICA SUMMICRON-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH. is already impressive at f 2. The detail rendering and brilliance are remarkable. Even in critical lighting situations, such as against-the-light exposures, disturbing reflections and stray light are practically eliminated. and with its 75? angle of view it captures sufficient frame for lively reportage shots.

The rendition of the finest details results in pictures with an extraordinary depth effect. Even in critical lighting conditions, for example in backlit situations, distracting reflections and flare are largely eliminated. Because of its large aperture of f/2, it can also be used for selective sharpness settings in the wide-angle range. And when pictures are to be taken without flash under unfavorable light conditions at twilight or in sparsely illuminated rooms, this lens is highly recommended.
