Featuring the same optical design and distinct image quality as the original version from the 1930s, the Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2 from Leica is an M-mount lens characterized by its unique soft focus look and use of a removable center spot filter to enhance the lens's dreamy qualities. This portrait-length lens replicates the optical layout of the original, but improves upon its predecessor with single-coated glass elements for greater protection against the elements and corrosion. This new version also sports a striking black paint finish and dual aperture scales, in white and red, to represent working with and without the removable center spot filter. Straying from the clean and sharp quality Leica is best known for, the Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2 serves as an homage to the unique and creative lenses that makeup their heritage of producing truly striking and unmistakable imagery.

Dedicated to producing soft focus imagery, this unique lens can be used in conjunction with the included center spot filter to increase the drama of the dreamy effect for striking, ethereal image quality.
Based on the original Thambar from the 1930s, this updated version uses the same optical layout but features a single protective coating on the glass elements to guard against corrosion.
Deliberate under-correction of spherical aberration, along with a 20-blade diaphragm, produce a circular rendition of out-of-focus highlights along with an overall diffuse quality that becomes more exaggerated towards the edge of the frame.
Short telephoto focal length and bright f/2.2 maximum aperture are ideal for portraiture and isolating subject matter using shallow depth of field techniques.
Dual aperture scales, in red and white, represent working with and without the center spot filter in place. Additionally, the aperture ring is stepless for smooth, precise adjustment that is not limited by click-stops.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 3.3'.
Included vintage brown hard leather case further reinforces the classic look and nostalgia of this lens, and contains a storage pocket for the included center spot filter in the lid. Additionally, the included specially designed metal lens hood and metal front lens cap are felt lined to protect the metal body of the lens from scratches.


Leica Camera is pleased to expand its line of classic lenses with the Leica Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2. First introduced in the mid-1930s where only about 3,000 units were produced, the new Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2 has the same optical design but a modified exterior. The lens still produces the same dreamy, soft focus look of the original 83-year old lens.

The Leica Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2 offers the following benefits :

  • Optical design similar to the original Thambar-M 9 cm f/2.2.
  • Lens elements are now single-coated to protect the glass from the elements and corrosion.
  • Ensures the same, distinctive dreamy, soft focus look and unmistakeable bokeh.
  • Provides unmistakable imaging signature which cannot be reproduced by other lenses or digital processing.
  • Same proportions as original lens, with black paint finish and red and white aperture scales.
  • Red scale applies when the included center spot filter is in place, for a more dramatic softfocuseffect. When working without the center spot filter, the white aperture scale is used.
  • Meticulously crafted to the highest quality standards, with a primary focus on high-grade materials and durability.
  • Made in Germany, with a delivery scope that includes: metal lens hood, center spot glass filter with metal rim, metal lens cap and a hard leather case in vintage brown color – similar to the original
