The High-Performance Standard Lens
The Leica Summarit-S 70 mm f/2.5 ASPH is the ideal standard focal length for all photographic needs. Its extreme speed and excellent imaging performance guarantee outstanding results at all apertures and distances. Unusual for this focal length is the integration of an aspherical element. This almost completely eliminates monochromatic aberration and emphasizes the exceptional character of the lens. The Leica Summarit-S 70 mm f/2.5 ASPH. is also available with a central shutter.
The eight elements of its optical system are arranged in six groups. Two cemented elements made from glasses with high anomalous partial dispersion minimize chromatic aberrations. Glasses with high refractive indices and one aspherical element prevent monochromatic aberrations. Excellent close-range performance is guaranteed by the combination of a floating element with full-system focusing.
This lens is very clean and in excellent condition. There are no signs of excessive use or abuse. The focusing ring moves very smoothly with nice drag. The aperture ring moves freely with positive detents. The glass is clear and free of scratches, haze, fungus and dust. The autofocus motor has been recently replaced.
