Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 11856 User Manual (en)

Leica Camera AG has unveiled a new highspeed standard lens for the Leica M System offering maximum imaging performance:
the new LEICA SUMMILUX-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. It supersedes the predecessor lens with the same speed, which, notwithstanding
a few minor modifications, had been part of our range since 1962. The aim of this new development was to create a reference lens
to push the technical boundaries of photography using standard focal lengths into new dimensions. The LEICA SUMMILUX-M 50mm
f/1.4 ASPH. delivers virtually the same outstanding performance throughout all apertures and focus settings. Whether using selec-
tive focus at close range, high-contrast available light applications or an extended depth of field to capture landscapes, the
LEICA SUMMILUX-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. handles every situation with ease. It therefore delivers on its promise to be a genuine
universal lens in impressive fashion. Every innovation currently available in lens technology – aspherical lenses, glass with anoma-
lous partial dispersion, glass with a high refraction index and a floating element – has been combined to create a lens that sets the
new standard in this focal length class.
