  • Tribute to the classic: The basis of 35/1.8 is an optimized design based on a classic lens structure such as Leica 35/2 (IV). In the center area there is a higher sharpness, as well as a comfortable picture transparency. It also helps to conform to the contemporary aesthetic and stimulate the inspiration of the creator.
  • Lanthanide glass: A continuation of classic materials, we still use the traditional spherical design and lanthanide glass production. This classic combination can make the grayscale of the picture more dense and comfortable.
  • Comfortable operation: In terms of the sports feel of the focus ring, we have found the most comfortable feel for this compact lens to achieve rapid focus after several sample tests. The pick of the aperture ring is set in the position of the human finger in the natural grip state. With one touch, the aperture ring can be moved at will. These designs, which are in line with human mechanics, help to increase the enthusiasm of the creators.
  •  Multi-layer coating technology: The application of multi-layer nano-coating, the effect is similar to Zeiss T* coating. The anti-glare effect is greatly improved compared with our previous product.
