Leica 50mm f1.4 Summilux-M Asph 6-bit - Black
A combination of the know-how of Leica's engineers and the latest developments in manufacturing technology has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It delivers high-contrast images, with high-resolution detail, even at its widest aperture, and down to its minimum focusing distance. This is made possible by a number of factors including the use of a floating element, special glass types with unique refraction properties, and elements with aspherical surfaces.
The properties of this lens not only make it ideal for any photo situation demanding a handy all-rounder with the natural image angle of the 50 mm standard focal length, but also for available light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography - usually the preserve of much larger formats. Its wide-ranging versatility also makes it a top choice in assembling a Leica M lens outfit.

Leica's lens manufacturing is designed to deliver high performance lenses that ensure the best possible picture in any given situation. To achieve this goal, in-depth knowledge of the properties of hundreds of types of glass, the effectiveness of complex coatings, precision manufacturing, and customised fine-tuning, is imperative.
It takes decades of experience to produce perfect image quality. This however is nothing less than the basic requirement when our objective is to supply photographers with equipment capable of achieving pictures of unsurpassed crisp quality, colour brilliance, fullness of detail and richness of contrast.
