If I could only have one lens for the rest of my life, this would be it.

Summary: I use my 50mm Summilux more than any other lens; usually I bring nothing else with me. On a full frame camera, 50mm does everything. Wide open, it gives photos a timeless and beautiful 3D appearance, with creamy out-of-focus areas, giving photos that unique "Leica look." This is that lens.
I rarely write reviews but imo this is the best 50mm lens in the market right now

Summary: I rarely write reviews but imo this is the best 50mm lens in the market right now. The bokeh is so beautiful and creamy and WOW !!! is soo...clear and sharp when stopped down to f2. You get what you pay for but the price is well-deserved!!!
Summary: I've borrowed this lens a few times but only recently bought it for myself. It's a nearly perfect lens. It's truly sharp from f/1.4 on with targets both near and far, and there is almost no color fringing. It's compact, and the build quality is fantastic. Distortion is negligible.
Summary: A dream to have this lens on my Leica M. Simply perfect, easy of use. Probably the best combo to work on the street with people moving Taking picture with the available light is also very easy with the new M and high iso
Summary: I knew this lens would be good, but wasn't prepared for just how good. I've been using a Canon 5D, mark 3 with Canon lenses, which have been excellent. I'm not sure what the right word is, but there is a softness to the images taken with this lens, especially wide at f/1.4 which I've never seen.
