The Leica Summicron-TL has a focal length of 23 mm, the equivalent of 35 mm in 35 mm format and renowned focal length traditionally favoured for Leica photojournalism. A true classic Leica focal length. It corresponds to how you see your picture before your inner eye. Concentrate completely on setting the shutter speed, the aperture, and ISO sensitivity – and discover your creative talents. Its maximum aperture of f/2 is another Leica tradition and is ideal for creating that unmistakable bokeh effect. In the creative exploration of planes of sharpness, you can emphasise your subject in the foreground to lend greater plasticity to the image. The narrow depth of field allows you to capture pictures with true-to-life authenticity. The extremely compact size and exceptional performance of the Leica Summicron-TL make it the ideal lens to have at hand wherever you go. A lens that inspires you to explore the creative opportunities of every scene you see. A lens almost predestined for capturing new icons of photography – with your Leica TL.
