Leica expands the SL-System by two new, particularly compact lenses. These are also available in four attractive SL-Kits together with the SL2 or SL2-S.
Leica Camera AG is based on more than 150 years of experience in the development, design and manufacturing of optics. Lenses from Leica have since been a synonym for high-quality, reliable precision tools of stable value which capture photos and videos in outstanding image quality. Leica’s latest camera system is now getting a double addition to the Leica SL2 and the Leica SL2-S: the Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. and the Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH.
Both standard focal lengths are characterized by particularly compact dimensions and low weight. At the same time, they impress with their high speed and the famous Summicron look with a very shallow depth of field. This makes the SL-System even handier and ideal for daily use as well as travelling. The Summicron lenses focus extremely fast, smooth and accurate thanks to their linear direct drive. Hence, they not only deliver excellent focus performance for photography, but are also perfectly suited for videography, where quiet focusing is very important.
The Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. covers the wide range of applications in landscape, street and reportage photography and offers new perspectives because of a closest focusing distance of only 0.25 m. The Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH. shows its strength in almost all photographic situations, especially in travel, event and portrait photography. Both SL lenses expand not only the SL-System but also the L-Mount portfolio by two versatile, compact and lightweight optics to photograph and film in brilliant image quality “Made by Leica”.
In the case of the two new Summicron lenses, aspheric lenses are used as well. These enable the high optical performance in combination with the compact dimensions in the first place.
The new Leica SL lenses will be available globally at all Leica Stores, the Leica Online Store and authorized dealers starting now. The retail price of the Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. will be €2,250.00 including VAT and the retail price of the Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH. will be €1,950.00 including VAT.
In order to facilitate the first steps with the SL-System, Leica is now offering four more SL-Kits with the new Summicron lenses in addition to the two existing kits of Leica SL2 or SL2-S including Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–70. Thus, a total of six SL-Kits, each consisting of a camera body and a lens, are available with an attractive price advantage.
The retail price of the new Leica SL2 kit with the Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. will be €8,200.00 including VAT and with the Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH., it will be €7,900.00 including VAT. The retail price of the Leica SL2-S kit with the Summicron-SL 35 f/2 ASPH. will be €6,390.00 including VAT and with the Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH., it will be €6,090.00 including VAT.
