excellent but....

  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful lens...but my 90mm f/2.8 Elmarit is as good or better with definitely better bokeh....although the extra stop is worth having when you need it... And the admittedly very expensive Pentax 85mm f/1.4 FA* AF is better for real world IQ. Would I sell it? No...

90mm f/2.0 APO Summicron M

Mirek, B&H Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Pros: - Great portrait lens with beautiful bokeh - Optical quality is excellent - Collapsible lens hood is practical Cons: - Even though this lens is marked as APO, there are traces of axial chromatic aberration - Focusing at f/2 with M9 is not always reliable due to shallow depth of field

  • Excerpt: Masterpiece. It is hard not to admire the craftsmanship of this lens. Sharp all over! However, this is a big lens, way bigger than what you think!

The Jewel in my collection

Leica traveller, B&H Photo
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This is an amazing lens and I'm surprised so little is written of it. It has a beautiful glow when opened up along with sharpness. It's a lifetime lens worth owning and keeping like a family heirloom. I love it on my M5 and M9. It' is not heavy by SLR standards.

One of the best Lenses Ever

14 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I think this is probably the best lens I've ever owned having been photographing for 27 years with many different types of cameras. This is a jewel that I'll always have. People say "heavy" but compared to an SLR lens it's not heavy.

Big, but great.

  • Excerpt: This lens is very large, and doesn't really "jive" with the compact M series theme. If you're into Luigi cases, it won't fit in the standard M9 nose (75/2 largest that will fit, but 90 will fit in the "Noctilux" nose).

best medio-tele ever

  • Excerpt: The best medio-tele ever. Full stop. I used it since years from the M6 to the M9, amazing colour balance and terrific bokeh, incredibly sharp even wide open. Ideal lens for weddings in natural light

Perfect lens

world traveler, B&H Photo
18 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I used it the first time on our Alaska trip. Great tele-lens and super crisp sharp photos. It is a little bit difficult to focus with 2.o but every thing else is just simply fun to use.

Excellent Performer

hakob, B&H Photo
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The best portrait lens I've ever used/tried/owned. Very solid built quality. All the qualities you want from the portrait lens you'll definitely find in this heavy and solid/in any respect/performer! Sharpness/smoothness/color-fullness and accuracy - all there!!! I own this lens for about 10 years.
