Leica M-Lenses’ legendary reputation precedes them. One of these outstanding lenses is the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4, which appeared in 1961 as the world’s fastest wide-angle lens and experienced a renaissance with its new 2022 edition. Now, Leica Camera AG presents the classic lens in a numbered, strictly limited design variant: Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4, Black Anodized Finish.

Limited to 200 pieces worldwide, the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 now emerges in a black anodized finish, featuring the iconic silver stainless steel front ring, commonly referred to as the “Steel Rim”, while the engraving on the front reads “LEITZ WETZLAR”. Another detail of the new lens is the black painted brass focus lock button which acquires a unique patina with frequent use. In order to come as close as possible to the original, the engravings on the special edition’s focus ring have been adjusted. The arrangement of the feet and meter scale is also modelled on the original in terms of color and has been swapped in comparison to the silver series lens.

Regarding its imaging performance, the special edition corresponds to the series model. Photographing with open aperture creates pictures with an especially soft, almost magical bokeh which is hard to achieve even with digital image processing. When stopping down to f/2.8, it produces very sharp and particularly distortion-free pictures which also meet modern requirements for image quality.
