Summicron 35mm f2 Aspheric
The latest Summicron 35 mm f2 lens is an Aspheric design. Leica's
"Particularly compact, wide-angle lens with aspherical lens surface for
excellent optical performance.
"7 elements in five groups with one aspheric surface.
"The abbreviation "ASPH", added to the name, applies to the aspherical
lens surface that provides this optical system with unsurpassed image
performance. In comparison to its predecessor SUMMICRON-M f/2/35 mm
the lens distinguishes itself through improvements such as
considerable enhancement throughout the entire image field in the
brilliance of the image, which means a better reproduction of big
structures event at full aperture, as well as a better reproduction of
Fog rolling in over the Marine Headlands North of the
Golden Gate Bridge.
