The new LEICA SUMMILUX-M 90mm f1.5 ASPH. Black enables portraits with a breathtakingly shallow depth of field with impressive subject separation for the subject to be emphasized in perfect focus whilst rendering the background in an appealing blur. This short-telephoto 90mm focal length offers a flattering image quality that is well-suited to portraiture and mid-length images.

A whole range of creative opportunities such as portraits with extremely shallow planes of focus – either as precisely isolated subjects or as transitions from perfect sharpness into wonderfully soft, out of focus backgrounds is made possible with this lens.

The LEICA SUMMILUX-M 90mm f1.5 ASPH. delivers exceptional performance at wide-open aperture thanks to the cutting edge optical design. The new design sets benchmark standards by incorporating a pair of aspherical elements and a floating element system. This state of the art system ensures high sharpness and low dispersion to produce consistent image quality throughout the focusing range from 1 meter to infinity. Additionally, this lens has an 11-blade diaphragm to create an exceptionally pleasing, rounded bokeh quality and a built-in lens hood helps to prevent lens flare and ghosting.

With its ability to isolate subjects in space with an extremely shallow depth of focus and a focal length that simultaneously enables shooting from a less intrusive distance, the SUMMILUX-M 90mm f1.5 ASPH. stands out clearly among the classical focal lengths for portrait photography.

Key features of the Leica Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH

  • Super-fast portrait lens with f/1.5 maximum aperture for exceptional low ligh performance.
  • The Leica Summilux-M 90mm f/1.5 ASPH is the first Summilux lens with 90mm focal length
  • High-end optical performance.
  • Featuring an 11-blade aperture diaphragm for a rounded and pleasing bokeh quality.
  • Built-in extendable lens hood to reduce lens flare and ghosting.

Beautifully designed optical system for the ultimate picture quality

The optical design of the Summilux-M 90 mm f/1.5 ASPH. is extremely complex and features eight elements arranged in six groups, two elements of which are aspherical and made from special glass. A floating element – only achievable with enormous effort in such compact lenses – ensures that the outstanding optical performance of the lens is maintained at all focusing distances. The almost unavoidable effects such as vignetting and distortion generally encountered in such fast lenses play practically no role at all.

The ideal lens for portrait photography

A closest focusing distance of one metre and a reproduction ratio of 1:8.8 make the Summilux-M 90 mm f/1.5 ASPH. an ideal lens for portrait photography. Its high speed for this focal length fully exploits the potentials of the M-Bayonet mount.

A no-compromise compact lens design

With an optical design and construction closely related to the Noctilux-M 75 mm f/1.25 ASPH and similarly, extremely shallow depth of field in a compact package that is only around half the depth of that of the Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH this lens is the ultimate addition to your Lecia M-mount camera.

Aspherical elements for improved sharpness

Two large-diameter aspherical elements are used to control spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and reduced distortion.

Floating lens system

A floating element system is employed to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, even at the minimum focusing distance of 1m.


Precision machined and superbly made for long-lasting value

The Summilux-M 90 mm f/1.5 ASPH. owes its unique performance not only to the materials and glasses, but also to exceptional precision in the manufacturing and assembly process. This guarantees endurance and lasting value and is experienced in the extremely smooth focusing action of the lens and the control over bokeh, which demand exceptionally precise alignment of the optical system.

  • The integrated lens hood of the Summilux-M 90 mm f/1.5 ASPH. can be quickly and easily pulled out and locked with a twist to provide optimum protection against stray light and reflections.
  • Additionally, the front of the lens is threaded to accept 67mm screw-in filters.
