Leica extends the M-system with their brightest 28mm wide angle lens so far, the Leica Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH. Well, it’s actually not brand new. The lens was released already last year when Leica celebrated their 100th anniversary. But it only came in a special (and very costly) jubilee package – the Leica M Edition 100. And only in chrome. But now you can buy this lens separately and in black.
The optical construction consists of 10 lens-elements in 7 groups, including a floating element to achieve sharp images at all distances, and an aspheric element used to make the lens more compact and lightweight.
And the price? Around 5950 USD or 5500 euro. And that includes a metal lens hood.
