Leica 50mm F/2 Summicron ROM R Mount Lens {55} Description


Designed for the Leica R System, the Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron ROM (manufactured 1996-2009) is a standard lens with outstanding build and image quality.  With a solid metal construction, the lens is still relatively light weight at just 10.2 oz and only 1.58” long, which makes it ideal for hiking and travel.

The Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron has a built-in hood that can retract into the body. Extended, the hood reduces stray light that might enter the lens, resulting in high contrast images with little to no chromatic aberration.

Quite sharp wide open, the Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron gets tack sharp at f/4 while still retaining the creamy bokeh you expect from Leica glass.  The E55 ROM edition has a more neutral color than the previous, warmer, E48 version.  With approximately 270  of rotation, the smooth focus barrel gives optimum control for fine-tuning your scene.
