Product Description

Details

In mint - like new Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux ASPHERICAL lens in box. AA version and maybe one of the most sought after Leica lenses. Some very small signs of mounting the lens hood are visible.

Complete with box, pouch, lens caps, 12587 lens hood with cap and papers.

The Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux ASPHERICAL lens was presented by Leica in 1991 and at the time a production of 2000 pieces worldwide were planned.

However, since these aspherical lenses were so complex and difficult to manufacture, Leica had to reduce the planned production volume from 2,000 to around 1,000 units. The exact production however is unknown.

According to some users and collectors, the Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux ASPHERICAL lens has a slightly higher image quality and an even finer nuance in the color reproduction compared to the later Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux ASPH model. Anyone who has ever photographed with the Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux ASPHERICAL lens doesn't want another 35mm lens anymore.
