Leica Summarit-M 90mm f/2.5 Reviews

Kenrockwell reviews the Leica Summarit-M 90mm f/2.5 and writes;
“This LEICA 90mm f/2.5 SUMMARIT-M is sharp and contrasty, even at f/2.5. It handles great, if you aren’t familiar with the feel of real LEICA lenses. Focus is fast, if not as smooth as better LEICA lenses.”

Leica Summarit-M 90mm f/2.5 User Reviews

Leica’s Best in its new Summarit-M Lens Line, | Rating: ★★★★★
“It focuses nearly as quickly as my APO-Summicron-M lens, but, better yet, offers a level of a performance that is as good as, if not better, than Leica’s top-of-the-line fast 90mm lens at a significant savings. I saw some superb demonstration photographs taken with this lens, including a fine black and white portrait that is notable for its rich tonality (vivid blacks and whites, with very high contrast).” – by John Kwok

Features & Specifications

Leica Summarit-M 90mm f/2.5 Specifications

The Leica Summarit-M 90 mm f/2.5 is a versatile telephoto lens that rounds off the new lens speed class of Summarit-M lenses. Despite being much more handy and lighter than the comparable 90 mm Summicron lens, it offers outstanding optical and mechanical quality.

The 90 mm telephoto lens is a perfect demonstration of how Leica’s Summarit-M class is setting new standards in spherical lens design. A Leica M camera with a Leica Summarit-M 90 mm f/2.5 fitted is an extremely compact and handy unit. Compared to other 90 mm focal length lenses, there is hardly any intrusion into the viewfinder image.
