My Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90mm F2 ASPH Arrives

My Leica APO-Summicron-SL 90mm F2 ASPH Arrives:

Hey everyone! I got a call yesterday from my Leica dealer, Bergen County Camera, and heard my APO-Summicron-SL 90mm F2 ASPH was there waiting for me :). So, I drove out to pick it up today. Obviously, I’m extremely happy; I’ve been waiting for this lens since I bought my SL, which was like a year and a half ago.

I’m sorry I have no pics from it right now.  Traffic was a killer, and quite honestly, I’m a little tired lol. But I’m hoping to schedule a portrait session before I leave to Japan to test it out, and I will definitely post some of the images here. I am also going to write a major review of this lens, of course. I still have to review the other SL lenses and the SL itself but I think I’ll start with the APO-Summicron-SL 90mm first, since it is new.

Anyways, I’m just super excited. As you can see, the new APO-Summicron-SL 90mm is much more compact than previous SL lenses. It’s funny because I’m so used to the size of the other SL lenses that the 90mm almost feels a little too small :).  But overall, it balances very nicely with the SL. The truth is, even the 24-90mm and the Summilux-SL 50mm balance nicely with the SL. In my opinion, one thing really good about the SL is that while it’s not light, it can balance well with a variety of lenses.  Getting back to the 90mm, it’s compact, light, the autofocus is good, and of course, the build quality is amazing.  The thing’s like a tank.

I’ll post some pics with the Summicron-SL 90mm soon.  Next up will be a couple of Fuji related reviews that I want to post before I leave to Japan.  Thanks for stopping by!

    Should help to get the Leica SL review done, too 🙂
    I bet you will be shooting the Leica quit a bit more in the next couple of days.

      Haha I know. My SL review doesn’t feel like it will ever get done haha. I wish I could shoot more with the Leica these next couple of days but I have some reviews I have to finish before my trip. But I should be able to post a couple of times before I leave :).

      Best,

      Patrick
