Whether you own a Leica, or you simply covet one from afar, then you'll know that the Leica name is all about producing a premium product at a premium price. While Leica cameras are definitely expensive pieces of kit by themselves, it's not until you begin looking at the Leica lenses that your eyes truly begin to water. For example, the Leica Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH lens runs for a cool $12,495 / £9,600.

However, if you love the Leica handling system, but you don't feel like spending the price of a brand new Kia Picanto on a lens, then the new TTArtisan 50mm f/0.95 lens for Leica M-mount might be a great option for you.
