LEICA SUMMILUX-ST 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens launched


Launched (softly) at the SL Launch, Leica T Product Manager Maike Herberts
was quietly strolling around holding the new Leica Summilux-ST 35/1.4 ASPH
lens which is designed to work on both the ST and SL as a 50mm framed f/1.4
lens. Of course this means that the field of view will be around 50mm with a
depth of field resembling that of a 35mm lens.


Means that the lens will not cover the 24x36 format....  What a set of
weasel wording...


This gets to sound VERY Sony like... Some E lenses work at APS-C sensor
sizes. Others are full frame 24x36....  Very confusing..
