Leica Updates Trio Of Wide-Angle M
Even the classic version of a product can benefit from an update and Leica just announced that three of its classic, wide-angle M lenses have been improved. These next gen lenses include the Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH, Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH and the Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. Details are few and far between but as far as we can tell, overall improvements include a new optical design and “more robust” construction. In addition to reduced field curvature for both of the 28mm lenses, the 35mm now features an 11-bladed iris. Lens hoods and lens caps are metal and come with a ring to protect the lens when the hood is detached. And, if you like to coordinate the look of your camera/lens combo, the Summicron-M 35mm will now be available in silver (you’ll have to pay an extra couple of hundred bucks for the silver model) as well as black. We don’t have availability for the U.S. but the lenses should be available in the U.K.—and probably the U.S.—at the end of January (both 28mm models) and the beginning of February (35mm model). For more information, see the press release below or visit www.us.leica-camera.com.
Summicron-M 35mm: $2,795 (black); $2,995 (silver)
Smmicron-M 28mm: $3,995
Elmarit-M 28mm: $2,195
