The 7Artisans has released a 35mm f2 full-frame lens for Leica M cameras in Silver color. The Photoelectric lens is completely manual, focus and aperture must be set manually.
This is a compact wide-angle focal length lens well-suited for everyday, walkaround shooting. The comfortably wide field of view pairs with the relatively bright f/2 maximum aperture for apt depth of field control along with low-light performance.
A Sonnar-type optical design is employed, which promotes high sharpness, contrast, and flare resistance. Balancing the optical attributes, this lens’s manual focusing design affords a 2.3′ minimum focusing distance and a 10-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

The 7Artisans 35mm f/2 Limited Silver Edition for the Leica M is available for $288 on the Bhphotovideo.com website.
