Superb Budget 50mm Lens From Leica, | Rating:
“Performance-wise, it is almost as optically superb at f2.8 and f4 as the current 50mm Summicron-M lens with a collapsible lens hood (For the 50mm Summarit-M lens and the rest of the Summarit-M lens line, Leica has created separate detachable lens hoods, which do not come with the lens, but must be purchased separately.). Like current and previous 50mm Summicrons, this lens does accept 39mm filters. So it is definitely a most desirable lens for anyone interested in superb optical quality and a relatively inexpensive 50mm lens.” – by John Kwok
