Product description
Product Information
This is the classic silver Leica Summicron-M is a 50 mm f/2.0 aspherical lens made for the Leica M digital camera. It has the same 6-bit coding that many of the other Leica lenses have. This coding identifies the type of lens being attached to the M camera. The Leica camera lens has a 39 mm filter size with an f/2 to f/16 f-stop range. The minimum range for this Leica camera lens is the standard 2.3 feet, letting a photographer take close-up shots but not microphotography. The Leica camera lens has a magnification ratio of 1:15.5 and a 45-degree angle of view. Each of these lenses comes with a hood and front and back lens covers. The Leica Summicron-M has a length of 1.7 inches without the hood and a diameter of 2.1 inches. The Leica camera lens has a weight of 8.47 oz. It is considered a simple lens for all-purpose photography. The 50 mm f/2.0 lens has fingertip adjustment for manually focused photos.

    Unbeatable image quality and value for the 'real thing'.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    A truly spectacular lens.
    I also own a bunch of modern Leica glass, including the 50mm Asph 1.4 6 bit (latest version) and I thought that maybe this 60 year old Summicron would pale in comparison.
    Not so. Still breathtakingly sharp, even wide open. Stopped down it just improves. The main difference is that is has softer contrast, and is more susceptible to flare.
    The build quality of these lenses is remarkable - nicer than the new Leica lenses. The only thing you have to do is make sure that you get one that is not damaged. The front element is apparently much softer than other lenses, so it can be damaged by careless cleaning. Beware of examples that have 'cleaning marks' or 'mild scratches'. That cannot be fixed. Mine had none, and the first thing I did was attach a protective filter.
    Bottom line, I bought this incredible real Leica lens for $500. My Summilux 1.4 cost $4000! A made in Japan Zeiss Cosina Planar costs $860 and it does not remotely compare in construction (I had one). You do not have to go broke to shoot gorgeous Leica lenses, just buy vintage.

    Great lens! This may be the only lens you need for the Leica rangefinder.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    The Leica Summicron not only looks right on the M camera, it sees very much the same as our eyes. The f2.0 lens allows enough light for all but the dimmest daylight situations. Picture quality is excellent. I would put this lens against any 50mm lens out there.

    Leica Vintage glass for fine art photography

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Why I got it on ebay, best lens for 35mm in the world, and how it paints on film for natural lighting. No digital lens can be equal to it. The best on today's market in rare minerals glass making.

    Go with "Leica Vintage"!!!

    If you have to have only one Leica lens, strongly consider this one.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Amazing lens. Almost the only one you need. Speed and sharpness at its best. It's heavy and large by Leica standards (esp. compared to my 28mm Elmarit) but it balances well on the M9 and it feels great in the hand.
