Summarit-M 90mm F2.5 Lens from the Leica factory in Germany.
Leica is opening up the challenging world of rangefinder photography to a wider target group. High-performance Summarit-M lenses are the culmination of decades of striving to achieve perfect optical and mechanical quality by using premium materials, percision production techniques, cutting-edge mult-coatings, and individual hand adjustment. They are all produced at the Leica factory in Germany and carry the "Made in Germany" quality mark. The new Summarit-M lenses deliver beautiful, natural rendition, brilliant colors, a wealth of detail and rich contrast - even at full aperture. The mechanical system is pure Leica - the parts have no backlash and their movement is silky smooth. Summarit-M is a contemporary interpretation of classic lens construction in the renowned Leica traditional.
Summarit-M : Amazing quality plus outstanding value
The new Summarit-M lenses represent the very best that can be achieved today using traditional spherical lens design, for both analog and digital Leica M photography. All are 6-bit coded for optimum compatibility with the LEICA M8, but also demonstrate their full capabilities on all M models from the LEICA M3 onwards.
The LEICA SUMMARIT-M 90mm f2.5 is a versatile telephoto lens that rounds off the new lens speed class of Summarit-M lenses. Despite being much more handy and lighter than the comparable 90mm Summicron lens, it offers outstanding optical and mechanical quality.
Handy telephoto equipment
The 90mm telephoto lens is a perfect demonstration of how Leica's Summarit-M class is setting standards in spherical lens design. A Leica M camera with a LEICA SUMMARIT-M 90mm f/2.5 focal length lenses, there is hardly any instrusion into the viewfinder image.
All Summarit-M lenses are shipped in velour pouches, with metal lens caps for the front and back. In addition high-quality solid metal sun hoods are available as accessories.
