50mm F2 Apo Asph M Black 11141
Boxed with leather case and caps.
The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. lens is yet more clear proof of Leica's leading role in optical excellence. With this lens, Leica engineers successfully expanded the limits of the technically possible to set new standards in imaging performance. It was the first lens ever to fully exploit the capabilities of modern high-resolution camera systems without any compromises. This lens was a milestone in the history of optical design that achieved previously unattainable values in all technical performance characteristics. For instance, there is practically no fall-off at the edges - even at full aperture - in the MTF curves for image sharpness. Even the finest details are rendered with more than 50% contrast - which was a previously unheard of value that confirms the exceptional properties of this lens.
This enormous contrast enables extremely sharp images with superb corner-to-corner detail rendition in all photographic situations. At the same time, the apochromatic correction of the lens minimises chromatic aberration on sharp edges to ensure natural rendition of every detail. This results in outstanding pictures - even in large-format prints. The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. provides discerning photographers with a high-performance lens in the portfolio of standard focal lengths.
