Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. Lens blends the vintage appeal from its original version of 1959 with an improved optic design, including spherical and floating elements that reduce ghosting and distortion.
Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. The lens comes with a vintage look and design as it features the same unique matte black finish and a classic exterior design as the original version from 1959. It is an M-mount lens that comes with a unique soft-focus look and uses a removable center spot filter to enhance the lens's dreamy qualities.
Our Take on the Leica Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH.:
Although it has a vintage look on the outside, the newer version comes with improved optics incorporating one aspherical element and one floating element. These elements are made from anomalous partial dispersion and high refractive index glasses.
The sophisticated redesigned construction reduces chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the focusing and aperture ranges, contributing to high overall sharpness and clarity. Further contributing to the lens's overall versatility, the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture also aids in working in difficult lighting conditions and offers greater control over focus for shallow depth of field techniques.
This black-chrome edition's vintage outer design with innovative optical components vouches for Leica's prowess in blending form and function. The lens allows a manual focus design that provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:11.3.
