Produced from 1954 to 1968, the Leica M3 enjoys a legendary reputation among photographers and collectors. With this camera icons of modern photography were taken and probably no second camera system influenced the modern photography and visual language as strong as the Leica M series.
The Summicron-M 2.0/50mm lens is not inferior to the Leica M3 in terms of its reputation among users and collectors. Since its first performance in 1953, the lens has been considered the reference for a fast, 35mm photography lens with a normal focal length. And a look at the evolution of this lens type and the fact that the latest version, the APO-Summicron-M 2.0/50mm ASPH. is still regarded as a milestone and reference in lens construction, explains why many Leica photographers do not want to do without “their” 50mm lens.
