The New Field Depth
Reminiscent of the vintage Summicron 50mm f/2 (II) from 1956, the APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH, black chrome features the characteristically scalloped focusing ring, with barrel components machined from brass. This special lens has engravings for the focal length and distances measured in feet highlighted with red enamel paint, meticulously applied by hand. The classic package is completed with a vintage-style, round brass lens hood engraved with ‘Made in Germany’ and a lens cap carved from solid brass.
The retro-style black chrome version of this lens matches the incredible capabilities and image rendering of the standard Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH, and will be limited to just 700 lenses worldwide.
Even at full aperture, there is no fall-off at the edges in the MTF curves. Furthermore, the finest details are rendered with more than 50% contrast, enabling sharp images with superb corner-to-corner detail rendition in all photographic situations. The apochromatic correction of the lens minimizes chromatic aberration to ensure natural rendition of every detail.
