Here’s the new Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75/2.0 APSH!

Holy smoke Batman, I just received the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 75/2.0 ASPH for a review. I’ll have it for a week so check out how I feel about this lens.

Because I didn’t find a decent picture of the lens itself to get an impression of the size, here’s a quick snap of the lens. It’s much lighter and smaller than the 50/1.4 SL, but also quite bigger than the Summarit-M 75/2.5, which is (I know) half a stop slower. Also, AF seems to be very fast.

Also, Leica has released firmware version 3.1 for the SL and I’ve just updated my camera. I’m curious if this update also fixes the ‘hickup’ that I sometimes have when pressing the shutter.

Happy times for SL users!
