It is a powerful and compact wide-angle lens delivering outstanding picture quality. Due to its excellent light-gathering power it is particularly versatile, producing particularly convincing results in difficult light situations, in twilight or in dimly lit rooms.
The imaging performance of the Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH. is already impressive at f 2. The detail rendering and brilliance are remarkable. Even in critical lighting situations, such as against-the-light exposures, disturbing reflections and stray light are practically eliminated, and with its 75 Degree angle of view it captures sufficient frame for lively reportage shots.
