Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.

 

No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.

 

Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.

 

Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.

 

No drop-in filter support

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

This lens is among the very best in terms of sheer quality of design. Its exceptional picture performance in such a compact package is an outstanding achievement of Leica's aspherical technology. The hallmarks of this remarkable lens include high contrast, superb detail rendition across the image field, excellent flatness of field, and very low coma - all at virtually the same quality even at distances down to 0.7 meters (28 in). The 35 mm focal length is already the standard for many Leica photographers. Ultra-high speed paired with outstanding optical characteristics and compact dimensions make this Summilux a universal wide-angle lens. Its uses range from medium-distance portrait photography to landscape shots. We can recommend it without reservation as a top lens, best suited for available light photography.
