An individualist returns
Most products receive enhancements over the years. But some have a special character and an individuality that makes them las t .
Just like the classic Leica Summilux-M 35 f/1.4.

The true king of bokeh
As the world fastest wide-angle lens, the Leica Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 set the photographic benchmark in 1961. Today it continues 
to inspire with its exceptional images. Especially shots at open aperture fascinate with their individual, almost fairy -tale look, which 
is really difficult to achieve through digital editing.
A distinctive bokeh and vignetting at maximum aperture, got the Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 its title as the “true king of bokeh”. 
Photographing at open aperture in backlit conditions creates intended lens flares that can be used for specific creative effects. At 
smaller apertures it delivers very sharp and almost distortion-free pictures that easily meet all modern requirements on image 

Elegance in a compact form
Anyone picking up the Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 for the first time immediately get why countless renowned photographers refuse to 
take it off their camera. And why Leica is reviving it with a virtually unaltered 1961 vintage look and identical optical des ign.
It’s stainless-steel front ring. Lockable focus ring. And the black clip-on lens hood. They’re all modelled on the original.
New, on the other hand, is the second lens hood this classic comes with. This alternative, round version has an E46 thread fo r 
filters. Which –in addition to its compactness, extremely low 200g weight and its precise controls –make the Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 
a versatile prime lens for every M camera. 

1961: The fastest wide-angle lens
When the Summilux-M 35 f/1.4 came on the market in 1961, Leica presented the fast-ever lens the world had ever seen. 
For over 35 years it was produced in several versions. Today is a rarity in high-demand. With the renewed production in 
our Wetzlar factory, the classic is about to experience a notable revival.

A true Classic: In addition to the Summaron-M 28, the Thambar-M 90 and the Noctilux-M 50, the Summilux-M 35 is part of 
the Leica Classic Line – embodying quality and lasting value.
