Leica Introduced Three New Leica M Limited Production Lens Variants

Few hours ago Leica announced three new limited production M lens variants:

  • the previously rumored Leica Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH silver lens
  • the Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 matte black paint (released before as a Limited Edition in Japan)
  • the Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH black chrome lens

The special series of the three lenses are distinguished by unique design highlights and are being offered in a limited number of examples. The performance and technical specifications of the lenses are otherwise identical to those of the serial production products.

This special lens has engravings for the focal length and distances measured in feet with red enamel paint, meticulously applied by hand.
