Street, portrait, or whatever catches your eye: Conceived as a universal lens for any situation, the APO-Summicron-SL 75 f/2 ASPH. opens up new horizons for photography in the versatile zone between standard and telephoto focal lengths. It is perfectly matched to the cutting-edge SL-System and has been designed for a long life under a heavy professional workload. In addition to this, the maximum reproduction ratio of 1:5 contributes even more to the versatility of the lens, allowing for close-up shots that pop with punchy sharpness and definition.
With a maximum aperture of f/2, the SL-Summicron lenses are significantly more compact than even faster lenses, but still allow photographers to work with similar depth of field. The reason for this is contrast: the area of highest contrast is incredibly sharp, while zones with lower contrast are unsharp or beautifully blurred.
