28mm f/5.6 Summaron-M ASPH
Compact M-bayonet mount prime lens
Leica's 28mm f/5.6 Summaron-M ASPH lens is an update to the classic lens design of the original screw mount Summaron 28mm f/5.6 lens produced at the Leitz factory in Wetzlar from 1955 to 1963. The new Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 features an M-bayonet mount, 6-bit coding and a slightly revised mechanical design but no changes to the optical design itself. Please note that each lens will be a special order item, made only after an order has been placed.
Physically this is Leica's most compact M-lens to date, with an overall length of approximately 3/4” (less than 2cm), making it unobtrusive and ideal for street photography. It features a clearly laid out depth of field scale and long focus throw for precise and easy zone focusing. It is assembled by hand in Germany, using top quality materials, and finished in silver chrome.
Through its combination of large depth of field, natural contrast, excellent rendition of details, and visible vignetting, the Summaron-M gives images a unique character, reminiscent of analog photography. It comes with a brass metal lens hood, designed to match the original Summaron lens, and cap.
