Description

The Ernst Leitz 50mm (5cm) f/2 Summicron in a 'rigid' focusing housing with M-Mount is a legendary normal/standard lens for Leica's bayonet mount M rangefinder system.  This 'rigid' version (non-collapsible or non-retractable housing) was first introduced by Leica in 1956 following the success of the original screw mount Summicron in 1952 and the original M Mount Summicron in 1954.  While it doesn't stow quite as compactly as it's collapsible predecessors most users find the overall size convenient and many prefer the always ready to shoot design.  Most importantly, it's known for taking amazing images.

The optical design is a the tried and true 7 elements in 6 groups that have been single-coated, as well as 10 aperture blades.  The Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron Rigid is an excellent lens that producing beautiful outstanding bokeh, sharpness, and color rendition.  Even wide-open, hardly any coma can be discerned in the image area and the Summicron 50mm produces high-quality contrast, distortion-free, sharp photos with virtually no vignetting or ghosting.  The aperture ring clicks from f/2-16 in ½ stop increments and the optic head is removable from the focusing mount for use as part of the Visoflex system.

With it's robust solid feel and classic design that makes wonderful unique images the Summicron 50mm is a really good go-to lens for all sorts of uses, whether you're an M3 owner or a digital shooter; this is vintage Leica style at it's best.
