The Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90 f/2 ASPH was announced alongside a 75mm f/2 lens, marking the first of a new line of Summicron-SL lenses.
Both of the lenses have been designed to work with the Leica SL – its full frame digital camera. The 90mm is the ideal focal length for portraits, especially given its wide maximum aperture.
Leica claims that the new lenses have been made using extremely precise manufacturing methods which allows them to be more compact and lightweight than they otherwise might be.
The new lenses feature a new, faster autofocus system, along with a close focusing limit which allows for tight framing for portraits. The Leica promise of “maximum aperture is a usable aperture” is applied to these lenses too – Leica promises that even wide open, the lens is capable of producing sharp images.
