Lens Description: As of 2014, the new Summicron-S is the fastest lens for the Leica S system with an aperture of f/2. When mounted on a Leica S camera, it acts similarly as an 80mm lens would when mounted of a 35mm camera, whilst in terms of depth-of-field aperture is equivalent to approximately f/1.2. The lens is very impressive, large and heavy, and features Leica-standard metal construction with sealing against dust and moisture. The optical formula is relatively simple with 7 elements in 5 groups, there are two aspherical elements and the lens can be considered to be of apochromatic design.
