Leica 35mm f/2 Summicron-SL ASPH: Distortion and Distortion Correction — Most Pathetic 35mm Optical Design EVER?

Leica 35mm f/2 Summicron-SL ASPH

re: Leica SL3 vs Sony A7R V: In-Depth Value Comparison

UPDATE: I’ve added images up to full camera resolution, both uncorrected and corrected.

I’m speechless.

Well no I’m not, see my review page where I tell you what I think, really.

Rarely if ever have I seen such a godawful optical design sold to unsuspecting customers—except on the Leica Q/Leica Q2/Leica Q3 where it was unacceptable at 24MP on the Q, and a seriously unfunny bad joke on the Leica Q3.

It is impossible to make a sharp image with this lens.

In diglloyd L-Mount/Mirrorless:

Leica 35mm f/2 Summicron-SL ASPH: Distortion and Distortion Correction

Includes uncorrected and corrected images up to full camera resolution (via Iridient Developer, which allows processing without correction).

It’s a huge disconnect from the superb reference-grade APO-Summicron.

Still, some users may like this relatively smaller and lighter lens for 'street shooting' or some such, but I can’t see a reason to pay so much for such poor performance—consider the about $598 Panasonic Lumix S 35mm f/1.8, which is probably a far better performer and 1/3 stop faster also and only 295 grams.

Below, go for the best (Leica 35/2 APO-Summicron-SL), or the Panasonic 35mm /1.8 S.
