Best Leica Lens

JR, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Amazing lens - sharp with great tone and contrast. Although it is not as fast as some as Leica's other offerings, in my opinion this is the best 'M' lens due to its compact size.

As good as you need

DanTheMan, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: This is not the sharpest/highest contrast lens made. That said, it's not too far off, it has better than average bokeh hand it's extremely small. I use this more than any other lens because I can fit it in my pocket, it creates great photos, and it is mechanically great--better than any Zeiss I've...

My LEica lens

Dneez, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: So far I have enjoyed this lens and challenged by taking pictures with no wide angle or telephoto. It is good to be challenged and find joy in something that makes you think. I now just have to get a UV filter and I won't worry about anything happening to the lens.

User Review

Photography Review
29 September 2012
  • Summary: A very well performing lens, even at aperture fully open. I use it on M9 (digital) and also older M5 and M6 analog cameras and have been always extremely pleased with the results. Superior sharpness, no visible distortions, very flare-resistant in opposite light. The max.
  • Pros: great image quality, nice mechanical precision, small size, very low weight
  • Cons: only one: the optional Leica metallic sunshade (expensive!) rotates very easily in its thread...

Superb Budget 50mm Lens From Leica

John Kwok, Amazon
25 November 2007
  • Summary: Leica has introduced this marvelous little "retro" lens, the 50mm f2.5 Summarit-M lens which will remind long-time Leica M users of classic black 50mm f2 Summicron lenses manufactured at Leitz Canada and Leica Germany from the 1980s to mid 1990s, since, like them, it possesses a focusing tab.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Want Leica optics on your M and f2.5 is enough light ? Look no further Sharp at f2.5 and as sharp and within a micro-whisper of the eye-bleeding sharpness of the Summilux at f4 Leica's latest lens set also have Leica's latest optic technology (Leica do not compromise on optics).
