LEICA 50mm f/2 SUMMICRON-M (1979-today)

Ken Rockwell
8 July 2015
  • Conclusion: This version also works perfectly with all LEICA M kameras, including the newest LEICA M9 digital, with the use of a simple adapter ring . Focus, metering, and everything is exactly as if it were an M lens.

Leica M with 50mm APO Summicron Lens

7 June 2015
  • Excerpt: If a visitor from another planet arrived on Earth and asked to see the perfect specimen of what a digital camera and lens should look like, this combination might be the best choice. In terms of design and construction, fit and feel, the Leica M with 50mm APO Summicron is nearly perfect.

  • Conclusion: It took me a while but now that I own and use this lens on an almost daily basis I have to say it may be my favorite all around lens for the M9 replacing the 35 Summicron but I also adore the 35.

Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 - Review / Test Report

4 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The Summicron-M 50mm f/2 is an impressive lens. It shows very good resolution across the frame wide open, and excellent sharpness when stopped down to f/4 or f/5.6. Distortion is no issue at all. Vignetting is fairly pronounced wide open.

27 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2009-10-19 on Optyczne.pl Rangefinder optics hasn’t recently appeared on the main page of portals dealing with tests of photographic equipment. The reason for this was simple. Good tests of these lenses could only have been conducted on analogue cameras.

Expert Review

26 August 2009
  • Summary: Jakość wykonania Summicrona-M 50 mm, jego małe gabaryty, gustowna obudowa, połączenie z niewielkim i dyskretnym korpusem M9, powoduje, że sprzęt nie tylko cieszy nasze zmysły, ale sam zachęca do wzięcia go do ręki i pójścia w miasto w celu wykonania kilku zdjęć.
  • Cons: wyraźna koma,, duże winietowanie w okolicach maksymalnego otworu względnego.
