Summicron-M 50mm Chrome – Sharpness and Color

What triggered my interested in owning a Leica besides how cool they look? Its sharpness and color. The following sample will give you an idea of what to expect from the amazing Summicron-M 50mm. I like how it renders color, sharpness and contrast. I could not ask for anything better than this. There may be better lenses than this one, but for the price you simply cannot beat it. To me, this is a perfect balance of technology and quality, no wonder it has been around for decades. To other folks, the Bokeh is busy and it gives nothing special to the photo. Again, to me this is simply an awesome lens. The only reason why I would trade it for a different one is for the super expensive Summicron-M 50mm APO.


This is how it looks on a Leica M9.
