Quick Overview:

Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 "Safari" Edition

Leica Camera is excited to announce the Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 Edition 'Safari' - the very first time an M-system lens has been painted in Leica's legendary olive green finish. Limited to only 500 pieces worldwide, the lens pairs perfectly with all of Leica's previous "Safari" Edition M models, and the newly-announced M10-P Safari Edition. In addition to the special enamel finish, the Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 Edition ‘Safari’ is also distinguished by other design features. The distance scale in feet and the focal length engravings are picked out in red paint and stand in contrast to the otherwise white engravings on the lens. As the technical specifications and optical performance are identical to those of the serial production model, the lens is therefore not only an ideal complement to the olive green M-Cameras. The compact design of this high-performance standard lens makes it an ideal addition to every photographer’s set of Leica M equipment.

The Essentials:

  • The first M-lens with the special olive green paint
  • Red lacquered feet scale and focal length indication
  • Technical properties identical to the standard lens
  • Made in Germany
