Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 Black

High standard
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.

Technical details
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.

    LEICA SUMMICRON-M 50MM F/2 BLACK is The Sharpest

    Posted by Zelig on Jun 25th 2020

    The sharpest 50mm prime money can buy and it is small and light to boot! What a great value for the money. If I could only afford one lens this would be it!!!
