The limited anniversary or commemorative version of the Summicron-M 2.0/50mm was introduced by Leica in 1983 together with the special model M4-P “1913-1983” and several other lenses with anniversary engraving and Leicameter MR-4 exposure meter and ever-ready case.
Technically, the Summicron-M 2.0/50mm is based on the regular series version of the 1980s and only the special engraving on the barrel distinguishes it from a normal lens.
A total of approx. 3,750 pieces were produced as a limited edition “1913-1983”!
The Summicron 50mm was available both individually and as a set with the Leica M4-P “1913-1983”, Winder M4-P “1913-1983” and Leicameter MR-4 without special engraving.
