Leica, the iconic German camera manufacturer, has launched a new version of its legendary Summilux-M 50 f/1.4 ASPH. lens. The previous iteration of this infamous lens has been a favorite of Leica photographers for decades, but has now been updated for Leica’s modern digital cameras with the latest high-end sensor technology to provide even more compatibility and image quality. 

The new Summilux-M 50 f/1.4 ASPH. lens features a standard focal length of 50mm which is versatile for many day-to-day photographic situations including portraits, street photography and landscapes. Thanks to Leica’s promised increase in image quality, the new Summilux-M 50mm should be set to unleash the full potential of Leica’s latest 60-megapixel multi-format camera sensors found in the Leica M11 and the newly-announced Leica M11 Monochrom.
