Leica Thambar-M 90 f/2.2

The Thambar’s distinctive, dreamily romantic look and unmistakeable bokeh are created by deliberately undercorrected spherical aberration, along with 20 aperture blades for the circular rendition of out-of-focus highlights. Because the aberration increases towards the periphery of the optical system, both the extension of the depth of field and the degree of diffusion can be precisely controlled via the stepless aperture ring.

Widening the aperture increases the soft focus, whereas stopping down reduces the effect.  The lightproof area at the centre of the soft focus spot filter prevents the axial rays (which generate sharp focus) from reaching the sensor – resulting in an even more intense soft focus appearance.

State-of-the-art Lens Design

The new Thambar has almost entirely adopted the design of the original lens – featuring the same proportions, black paint finish and red and white aperture scales as its 1930s predecessor. The red scale applies when the center spot filter is in place, which diminishes the effective aperture of the lens – for example, from 2.2 to 2.3 when wide open. When working without the center spot filter, the white aperture scale is used. In order to retain its vintage appeal, the Thambar’s exterior has only been subtly adapted to reflect the pared-down character of contemporary M lenses. This takes the form of details such as the knurling (which is now in line with the standard Leica style generally used today), the lettering on the lens, which is inlaid in the now customary LG (Leitz Gravur) font, as well as the introduction of clear-cut edges and chamfers, which serve to emphasise the precision of the lens design.

The optical design of the new Thambar is almost identical to that of the original – the only difference being that the lens elements are now single-coated to protect the glass from environmental influences and corrosion. This also makes the new Thambar an interesting addition for collectors, who are now able to apply the lens in practice, without having to expose their vintage original to wear-and- tear.
