Leica 28mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL Aperture series: Oily Blue Water among Orange Streambed Rocks

I’m really enjoying field-shooting the Leica 28mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL*. It just seems to fit so many scenes so well and delivery spectacular results. And this sample has showed no build-quality issues.

This aperture series from f/2 through f/11 shows off stunning performance of the Leica 28mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL ASPH on a landscape scene.

*Not so the Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-SL, which has an obvious optical swing that leaves the left edge soft —all distance scenes noticeably weak on the left until f/5.6. I will be showing its lens skew which is obvious and a practical disaster, as I only have two Leica SL lenses to work with on this trip. It goes to show that claims of “hand assembly” and “MTF testing” blah blah blah are invariably marekting bullshit when a suitable distance scene immediately shows a problem. The 50/2 is also a pratical nightmare when shooting towards the sun—very difficult to shade the front lens element adequately to avoid its awful flare problems . The 28/2 has flare issues also, but is is much easier to shade it, perhaps because of its superior rectangular lens shade (inadequate round shade for the 50/2).
