Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 Reviews

Stevehuffphoto reviews the Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 and writes;
“Bokeh, color and sharpness/detail are all very good. If you are a regular to this site then you know how I shoot 99% of the time. WIDE OPEN! Yes, one of the reasons I love Leica so much is that their lenses are “no compromise” lenses. This means you can shoot wide open, stopped down…doesnt matter. You will get delicious contrast, sublime color and pleasant bokeh at all apetures (unless you are at F11, then no bokeh).”

Dalephotoanddigital reviews the Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 and writes;
“Even at full aperture, the lens demonstrates excellent imaging capability with outstanding contrast over the entire image field. A slight reduction in quality can only be seen in the corners – which are not even captured by the slightly smaller format of the digital LEICA M8 –but this can be almost totally eliminated by stopping down to 5.6. At close range, image quality is reduced only slightly, but is well up to the Leica standard.”

Superb, Compact 75mm Rangefinder Camera Lens from Leica, | Rating: ★★★★★
“These pictures offered more contrast, as well as the high resolution that I’ve come to expect from the latest generation of Leica’s M-mount rangefinder lenses. If there is one slight sour gripe that I must express about this lens, then it’s the regrettable fact that its lens hood must be purchased separately (This is also true for the other Summarit lenses too.).” – by John Kwok

Features & Specifications

Leica Summarit-M 75mm f/2.5 Specifications

The Summarit-M lenses are designed to offer traditional Leica optical and mechanical excellence while positioned at a price level below the current M ASPH lenses. The aim of these lenses is to bring classic Leica quality and performance to a broader market of users. The Summarit-M maximum aperture of f/2.5 and the concentration on classical and proven spherical lens designs leads to very compact, but high performance lenses with excellent quality expected from a Leica lens. The Summarit-M lenses wi see the reemergence of traditional Leica elements. All letter and number engravings will be made using the traditional “Leitz-Norm” font as originally used by Leitz Wetzlar during the 1960’s and the red button onthe lens mount will be true to the original color used on lenses produced since the introduction of the M mount through the 1970’s.
