Om Malik

As an aficionado of long exposure photography and a well-respected, veteran technology writer and investor, Om Malik, shares his experience of pairing the high-performance Leica SL-System with the unmatched Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH. lens in his visual landscape series of San Francisco.


The Must-Have Lens
for the Leica SL-System

"I made photos on multiple focal lengths: f2, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, and f22. I didn’t find fault with the photos from any of them. There is hardly an aberration, and the images were sharp. If you are an SL-owner, this is a must-have lens [APO-Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH.] in your kit — at least, it’s a must-have lens for me."

Its handsome, quiet façade masks a powerful brain and an artistic soul, that makes luscious images with colors that pop out of the screen."
