Description Details

The Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron-M (11826) is a renowned standard lens for the M-mount system.  It's a great general purpose lens that produces a normal field of view with the beautiful image quality Leica is famous for.

The double gausss lens design uses 6 elements in 4 groups, as well as eight aperture blades.  The Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron is an excellent lens producing outstanding sharpness, bokeh, and accurate color rendition.  Even wide-open with narrow depth-of-field, no coma can be discerned in the image area and the Summicron 50mm produces high-quality contrast, distortion-free, sharp photos with minimal vignetting or ghosting.  It's ability to work in poor or dimly lit environments lets you creates smooth images without having to increase digital noise through higher ISO values.

The 50 Summicron-M has a solid durable all metal design.  The aperture ring clicks from f/2-16 in ½ stop increments.  Originally introduced in 1994, this 11826 version effectively uses the same much loved optical design from the previous 50mm f/2 Summicron-M (11819) but with a revised mechanical design that includes a built-in lens hood.  This particular Summicron-M (11826) is 6-Bit coded to allow digital M cameras to automatically identify the lens as soon as it's mounted for adjustments based on it's unique optical characteristics and for EXIF information.  The convenient built-in lens hood keeps the lens ultra compact and is ready to deploy quickly whenever needed.  It's a very pleasant lens to carry and use, perfect for street, landscape, portraits, indoor scenes and so much more.  A classic lens that performs very well, the Leica 50mm f/2 Summicron-M is a great compliment to any Leica M body.
