The black-chrome finish design version of the Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is exceptional and exclusive. The matte black look model is made of solid brass. The traditional design is inspired by its predecessor from 1959 and reflects its typical features, such as the scalloped focusing ring and a finely knurled aperture ring. In addition, the feet scale design is in red. Furthermore, a round metal lens hood and a metal lens cap are also included in the package.
The new Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH supersedes a lens with the same speed that, notwithstanding a few minor modifications, had been part of the M lineup since 1962. The goal of this new lens is to create a benchmark that redefines the boundaries of photography with a standard focal length. The Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH succeeds in spades! It delivers virtually the same outstanding performance throughout all apertures and focus settings. Whether using selective focus at close range or in contrasty available light, or an extended depth of field to capture landscapes, the 50mm f/1.4 ASPH handles every situation with ease. Every innovation currently available in lens technology – aspherical lenses, glass with anomalous partial dispersion, glass with a high refraction index and a floating element – has been combined to create a lens that sets the new standard in this focal length class.
