High performance. Compact size. Ingenious Engineering.
Prime lenses offer their own special qualities: they are compact and fast, and deliver outstanding performance. Their speed enables a wide range of new options, for instance the creative use of depth of field to isolate subjects from the foreground and background.
Pictures captured with SL-Prime lenses then also reveal the unmistakable bokeh for which Leica lenses are renowned.
Another advantage of fast prime lenses is that they allow the use of faster shutter speeds, either to capture fast-moving action or to prevent shake effects in pictures when shooting handheld in low light.
35 f/2 ASPH.
The new standard
35 mm is unquestionably the true standard focal length, and is rarely missing from a well-provided gadget bag. The family of lenses with this universal focal length now has a new member – the high-performance Summicron-SL.
Thanks to its combination of reference-class imaging performance, dust- and moisture-proof sealing, and state-of-the-art AF technology, this lens knows no limits.
Available from Spring 2018
50 f/1.4 ASPH.
The Summilux-SL 50 f/1.4 ASPH. is conceived to deliver maximum optical performance and sets new standards in terms of imaging performance. When it comes to picture quality, this lens easily fulfills even the highest expectations.
75 f/2 ASPH.
Moderate telephoto lens
Street, portrait, or whatever catches your eye: Conceived as a universal lens for all situations, the Apo-Summicron-SL 75 f/2 ASPH. opens up new horizons for photography in the transitional zone between standard and telephoto focal lengths.
90 f/2 ASPH.
Master of portraiture
High speed and an unmistakably aesthetic rendition of out-of-focus areas make this telephoto lens the first choice for every portrait photographer.
The precision and almost silent action of its autofocus give photographers decisive extra moments to concentrate fully on the creative aspects of their work and the people in front of their camera.
Proofs of performance
SL-Prime Lenses in Action
When pressures of time or limited accessibility to subjects make it impossible to change your position or lens, you can always rely on the variable focal lengths offered by SL-Vario lenses.
Old values, new ways
The Leica adapters let you use more than 150 Leica lenses on the Leica SL: the high-performance Leica S- and M-Lenses, the classic R-Lenses, and the award-winning Leica Cine Lenses.
Leica TL-Lenses can be mounted directly on the Leica SL. In this case, the shared L-bayonet mount brings additional options and more creative freedom – with no need for an adapter.
The camera recognizes the TL-Lenses and automatically switches to APS-C format sensor mode.
