Our Verdict

The Leica Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH Lens arrives with a classic standard focal width, which is ideal for virtually any everyday subjects and can be left on your camera as an all day walk around option. Image quality its excellent and focusing is fast and quiet, lending this compact prime to both stills and video recording.

With just 2g between this Summicron-SL 50 f/2 ASPH. Lens and the 35mm version, videographers also gain a perfectly balanced pair of high-quality primes for content creation. This provides quick lens changes when mounted on a gimbal, without needing to rebalance before continuing to shoot.

The 50mm comes with a 45cm close focusing distance and is finished in the same customary black anodised all-metal design, which is typical of Leica’s black-finish lenses. Build-quality is also high, with rugged durability provided by a full-metal housing with dust and moisture resistance for outdoor shooting.

With a maximum f/2 aperture you can separate the subject and render smooth defocus areas in the frame, which is perfect for portraits, street photography and other subjects where a shallow depth of field is desirable. This is sure to be a popular 50mm prime for L mount content creators, thanks to excellent build quality, thoughtful features and excellent results for both stills and video.
