Leica Summilux-C T1.4 setLeica Summilux lenses are among the best lenses in the world. They were awarded an Oscar in 2015. From the oscar report; Leica Summilux-C lenses deliver ultra- high optical performance for film and digital cameras. They incorporate novel telecentric, multi-element, aspherical optics and this full series of prime lenses deliver unprecedented optical and mechanical performance. On the mechanical side, precision machining gives each focus ring and iris ring accuracy and ease of repeatability for the operator. The small size of the lenses means smaller camera packages, cases, and rigs. On the optical side, the aspherical elements in each lens create a telecentric path of light allowing more illumination across the entire field.
The same year 'Birdman', shot on Leica Summilux-C lenses, won the Oscar for Best Film.
