Leica 50mm f2 ASPH APO-Summicron-M Lens - Silver Anodized
Thanks to the perfect interaction of all parameters, from optical design and choice of materials to sophisticated and elaborate manufacturing and finishing, this high-performance lens is considered to be the reference lens amongst standard focal lengths. It impresses with exceptional imaging performance and sharpness that captures and resolves even the finest details.
Created by experience.
The APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. is characterised by extremely high contrast rendition from corner to corner of the image at maximum aperture and throughout the aperture range.
The utilisation of a floating element in its design ensures that this is also maintained to a great extent at close shooting distances. A total of eight lens elements are employed to achieve its exceptional optical performance. Three of these are made from glass types with anomalous partial dispersion to apochromatic correction and two of the others have a high refractive index.
The new field depthWith the new APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH. our engineers have set new standards in imaging performance. This is the first lens ever to fully exploit the capabilities of modern high-resolution camera systems, making no compromises in image sharpness and achieving previously unattainable values in all technical performance characteristics.
Manufactured with passion.
The specially formulated glass types employed are based on original developments from the former Leitz glass laboratory. The use of such glasses requires great effort and many years of experience.
Thanks to the consistent advancement of optical technologies, processes have since been refined and perfected to achieve the best possible imaging qualities.
Even at full aperture, there is no fall-off at the edges in the MTF curves. Furthermore, the finest details are rendered with more than 50% contrast, enabling sharp images with superb corner-to-corner detail rendition in all photographic situations. The apochromatic correction of the lens minimizes chromatic aberration to ensure a natural rendition of every detail.
Leica M-Lenses: Powerful, even in the lowest light.
Leica lenses are among the best in the world. They have been developed with the aim of fulfilling the most stringent quality demands for digital and film photography. Their performance is unrivalled when it comes to contrast, resolution, and tonal depth. Photographs taken with them possess a natural signature, especially when captured under challenging lighting conditions.
