To comemorate the 50 years jubilee of the Summicron-M 2,0/50mm lens in 2004 Leica made a limited edition model of this classic Leica lens with a 1950s/60s retro style lens barrel and modern optical formular. The lens is finished in silver satin chrome and comes with removeable lens hood. The coplete delivery contents was including a presentation box, a certificate of authenticity and a special maker’s box.
The mechanical performance is one of the most beautiful done works Leica have shown in all previous limited edition models. A piece of art and a masterpiece of craftmanship.
The partly knurled focussing ring in combination with the perfekt made lens barrel and the smooth focus is not just beautiful to look at it, is a pure enjoyment working with this lens also.
Such high mechanical perfection and craftmaship can only be encountered on one or two other limited edition models of the Summilux-M 1,4/50mm lens.
The Summicron-M 2,0/50mm is the reference lens for 35mm photography all other lenses are measured against!
The lens offered here comes with the lens hood and the lens box. In addition, the lens was completely overhauled at Leica in October 2022.
