p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Best 35mm lens for Panasonic S1R


I have the L-mount Sigma 35mm f1.4 for the s1r and it is good but not as stellar as I would like sharpness wise. I like to use the hi res mode which produces a 187 megapixel raw image and I want a lens that can handle that res. I know the answer will mostly be Leica 35mm Summicron. That would be great but is very, very expensive. Any other suggestions? I could flex with focal length a little...maybe 28mm also.

As much as I hate to say it, you hit the nail on the head. The Leica 35mm APO Summicron-SL is easily the lens that can handle that and will excel in sharpness, contrast and microcontrast. Yes, it's expensive, but look around - you can often find preowned examples for around $3k or so. You'll never have to buy another L mount 35mm, though. FWIW, I own the 35, 50 and 75mm APO Summicron-SL lenses for my SL2-S (and used them with the SL2 when I had it) and they're so good I often carry all of them in my bag.

I ordered the Voightlander 35mm f2 APO Lanthar at a much more agreeable price point and from all accounts, equal image quality to the Leica 35mm equivalent. Can't wait to test it on the s1r in hi res mode.
