“The SL90 lens for me is the headshot lens. It’s the lens for when I’m going to do a really pure portrait of someones face.”
This is generally the tightest that Greg would need for portraiture and is essential when you want to work only with the face. For Greg it is a brilliant beauty lens.
The APO-Summicron-SL 90mm f/2 ASPH. has its own special qualities: it’s compact, fast and delivers outstanding performance. Their speed enables a wide range of new options, for instance, the creative use of depth of field to isolate subjects from the foreground and background, showing the special bokeh Leica lenses are known for.
The construction and design of the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90mm f/2 ASPH. clearly illustrate the next step in the development of lenses for the Leica SL-System. The result is reflected not only in more compact dimensions but also in the significantly lower weight of the lenses. The exceptional performance of the lenses already available for the Leica SL has actually been surpassed, not only in terms of resolution, colour and contrast rendition, but also in the homogeneous centre-to-edge sharpness at all aperture settings. A further new highlight is a significantly shorter closest focusing distance and faster autofocus with Dual Syncro Drive™.
