product description

This is the first lens, possibly a world first, where large diameter lens elements have been given aspherical surfaces with the help of blank mounting. The technique of high precision press forming is now a standard within Leica and many lenses are fitted with this type of lens element. It is the Summilux ASPH that started revolution that has greatly facilitated the improvement of optical performance that seems to have become complacent. This lens is limited edition with Leica M6 camera originally. Total 996 units of these were made in 1996 to celebrate Leica entering the public stock exchange.
