Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2
A classic lens in its best form
In the category of high speed standard lenses, this handy universal lens has a world-wide reputation for the highest optical performance. With outstanding imaging quality even at the closest focusing range. It is available in black anodized finish and in silver chrome finish. Includes a built in slide out lens hood.This lens has been updated with the "6-bit" coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply a "final stage" software based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made). Includes "6-bit code" which allows the digital M8 camera to identify which lens is being used, and also to store this information in image metadata The "classic" choice for an M-Leica normal lens
The Summicron-M 50mm f/2 stands out due to both its compact and well-proven optical design, as well as its legendary focal length which can provide natural perspectives. Its fine picture quality extends all the way to the extreme corners of the image field, and outstanding contrast is achieved at all apertures.
The well-balanced design makes this ideal standard lens an outstanding choice in terms of all criteria, including image quality, speed, size and weight. Stopping down to f/2.8 or f/4 brings only a minimal increase in contrast. Distortion is extremely low, practically invisible.
