-Known as the double aspherical
-Highly unusual and unique front/rear concave lens elements, the only Leica lens of its kind to feature this at the time.
-This lens has become highly collectible and continuing to rise in price. For all the right reasons! The 35mm focal length is the most practical and most use lens. The 35mm 1.4 is fast and still compact on the M system
-This is the first ASPHERICAL 35mm Leica ever made and was unique to this particular 11873 code lens. 2 hand ground element, very difficult to make and subsequently was a small limited production
