Description

The Summicron 2.0/5cm was presented in 1953 by Leitz/Leica in collabsible screw mount version. In the following year the production of the lens with M bayonet mount began.
The optical performance was outstanding at the time and justified Leica’s reputation for producing excellent lenses for the M series. From today’s point of view, the first version of the Summicron 2.0/5cm lens can easily be seen as a classic of modern lens design and has a status like the Elmar 3.5/5cm lens from the beginnings of Leica photography. The modern design of the Summicron-M 2.0/50mm is regarded as the reference lens for 35mm photography and the development of the last 60 years has found its culmination in the APO-Summicron-M 2.0/50mm ASPH lens.

Offered is a classic Summicron-M 2.0/5cm in collabsible M-bayonet mount from the year 1954.
The technical and cosmetic condition is good to very good.
Since the lens is in unchanged condition, the glasses exhibit a very fine haze which, however, can be removed by cleaning. The coating of the glasses has no visible limitations.
