Leica Camera proudly announces its latest achievement in the world of fast-aperture lenses for its storied Leica M rangefinder system. The new Leica Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH. is the brand's latest in the long line of famed Summilux lenses, now for the very first time in the 90mm focal length. This new lens is perfect for portraits with an incredibly shallow depth of field, even half that of the legendary 50mm Noctilux-M f/0.95 ASPH, allowing a striking separation of its razor-sharp subjects from the dreamy backgrounds with a lovely bokeh. Whether used on a Leica M10 or on the new Leica SL2 with the M-Adapter L, the Leica Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH promises to bring portraits to life with new levels of sharpness and its own signature look.
The Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH is distinguished by an elaborate construction comprised of 8 lens elements, two of which are aspherical in design and made of specialized glass types, arranged in 6 groups. A floating lens element ensures the superior optical performance of the lens is maintained across the full focus range. This advanced lens design and fast maximum aperture it achieves gives the lens its unique image rendering and unparalleled performance.
