AS NATURAL AS THE HUMAN EYE

Fit for any situation

The know-how of Leica's engineers, together with the latest developments in manufacturing technology, has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It has a natural image angle that corresponds to a human eye view and is ideal for available-light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography – making it a top choice in assembling a Leica M-Lens outfit.

Technical details

The Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. delivers high-contrast images with high-resolution detail – even at its widest aperture, or down to its minimum focusing distance. This is made possible by a number of factors including the use of a floating element, special glass types with unique refraction properties, and elements with aspherical surfaces.

Black-chrome finish model

The black-chrome finish design version of the Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. is exceptional and exclusive. The matte black look model is made of solid brass. The traditional design is inspired by its predecessor from 1959 and reflects its typical features, such as the scalloped focusing ring and a finely knurled aperture ring.  In addition, the feet scale design is in red. Furthermore, a round metal lens hood and a metal lens cap are also included in the package.

The black-chrome version will be available from authorized Leica dealers at the end of April 2015.

Into the Dark

The Leica Summilux-M 1:1,4/50 mm ASPH. at "Wacken Open Air"

25 year ago it has been an exceptional idea: North of Hamburg, in the tiny village of Wacken, local Heavy Metal Bands played for some hundert fans in a tent on the countryside. Today 85.000 paying visitors make a pilgrimage to "Wacken Open Air" celebrating at the worlds largest Heavy Metal Festival. The heart of the festival are not only the conducting bands but more the "Wacken Family", the parties and peaceful celebration. Leica photographer Michael Agel visited the festival once more this year – and captured the special atmosphere of the "black giant", as the "Rolling Stone" titeled the festival, with the Leica Summilux-M 1:1,4/50 mm ASPH. at the Leica M Monochrom.
