  • Excerpt: You’ve probably heard all kinds of opinions about the Leica M8 digital camera but most of them were likely based on conjecture, and on the widely circulated stories about the tendency of the camera’s sensor to turn certain polyester products purple when photographed in bright light. I wanted to do a hands-on evaluation because I’ve used Leica products since 1980 and I’ve found their optics second to none.

Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.5 on Sony NEX - Review / Lens Test Report

4 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.5 is a lens for enthusiasts. Its execution is next to perfect and you can feel that it was made with passion rather than task-work and that's despite the rather "low" price tag for a Leica lens. However, even an low-priced Leica lens is hardly meant for the masses so you've to pay dearly for the privilege. In optical terms it is certainly an impressive lens and a tad better than the Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f/2 that we've tested here recently.
