Leica 24mm f/1.4 Summilux-M Aspherical lens is one of the fastest 24mm lens ever made for any rangefinder. The 24mm is a wide-angle lens specifically designed for high-speed performance. The unique wide angle view allows you to work efficiently in cramped areas and it adds a dynamic feeling to close-ups and gives landscapes photographs significantly more depth. Optimized for use with Leica M8 camera and demonstrates hardly any light falloff when set to its widest open aperture. Its bright f/1.4 aperture allows for an extremely shallow depth of field (DOF), and at a medium f/stop, the focal range is so great that entire scenes can be reproduced sharply. Because of its floating element design, the very high resolution is retained even in the close-up range.
