The type of photography that you are planning to use is an important decision factor. Here we have evaluated the Leica Summarit-M 35mm F2.4 ASPH and the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 for their suitability to various photography scenarios:
Size and Weight Comparison
The size of a lens is an important deciding factor when comparing two lenses. Leica Summarit-M 35mm F2.4 ASPH is the longer of the two lenses at 34mm.
