Leica Camera Lens 21mm f/2 Super-APO-Summicron-SL ASPH in Black Finish

The Leica Super-APO-Summicron-SL 21 f/2 ASPH. is the world's first 21mm APO lens, marking a milestone in lens technology. Equipped with the swift Dual Synchro Drive autofocus, it delivers edge-to-edge clarity within a surprisingly compact design. Its close focusing range down to 0.21 m enables stunning detail shots. The wide aperture further enhances creative possibilities through precise control of depth of field. Its unparalleled image quality and unique apochromatic correction are thanks to the 14 meticulously crafted lens elements, distributed in 11 groups, with three elements featuring aspherical designs.

This lens excels in diverse photography styles, be it landscapes, interiors, photojournalism, studio work or architecture. Natural skin tones, smooth transitions into bokeh, exceptional contrasting details, and edge-to-edge sharpness are a matter of course for Leica APO Lenses.


  • No Compromises On Performance
    This high-performance wide-angle lens captures images and videos with superior optical performance. Its broad viewing angle offers stunning perspectives and intricate detail. True to Leica's APO lens pedigree, it delivers exceptional contrast even when the lighting is less than ideal, opening up creative possibilities through exact control of focus and bokeh. Natural skin tones, smooth gradients, and corner-to-corner sharpness come standard with Leica APO-Lenses. They have everything a demanding photographer needs, whether you're shooting landscapes, interiors, architecture, or engaged in photojournalism and studio work.
  • Construction In Detail
    With 14 carefully engineered lenses — three of them aspherical — arranged in 11 groups, this lens offers peak performance right from the widest aperture settings. What sets it apart is its apochromatic correction, making it the world's first 21mm APO lens designed for full-frame cameras. To eliminate chromatic aberration, most of the lens elements are made of a special custom glass featuring anomalous partial dispersion, made possible by cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and sophisticated workmanship.
