Silver chrome model of Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 Asph

Press Release:
The choice of brass for the mount makes it highly abrasion-proof although the weight of the silver lens is only 130 grams more than that of its black counterpart. The optical performance and functions of the silver lens are equivalent to those of the black standard lens for Leica rangefinder cameras.

The Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 Asph is the first Leica M objective to integrate a floating element: During focusing, the last lens element changes its position in relation to the rest of the optical system. The result is superb optical quality right down to the macro range. To attain the same high quality of imaging over the whole image field, Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 Asph. incorporates high-refractive glass types and two with anomalous partial dispersion, one of which originates from the former Leitz Glass Laboratory.
