The Leica SUMMILUX-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. (6-Bit Code) delivers virtually the same outstanding performance throughout all apertures and focus settings. Whether using selective focus at close range, high-contrast available light applications or an extended depth of field to capture landscapes, this lens handles every situation with ease.

Every innovation currently available in lens technology - aspherical lenses, glass with anomalous partial dispersion, glass with a high refraction index and a floating element - has been combined to create a lens that sets the new standard in this focal length class.

This lens has been updated with the "6-bit" coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply a "final stage" software based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made).

An extremely fast standard lens that is used a great deal in reportage photography. Its extraordinary speed of f/1.4 permits usable shutter speeds even in poor light situations.
Includes "6-bit code" which allows the digital M8 camera to identify which lens is being used, and also to store this information in image metadata

              I bought this lens two weeks ago, afer trial out and shot about more than 100 pictures, I found this lens is the most sharp lens in Leica M50 series, with details and wonderful color.

                            Comments about Leica Normal 50mm f/1.4 Summilux M Aspherical Manual Focus Lens (6-Bit):

                            First off let me say that I feel very fortunate to have been able to order the 50 lux from B&H given how difficult they are to find. The lens is absolutely stunning, there's no other way to describe it. Sharpness, colors, bokeh, size, everything about it is perfect. I received the lens just days before a trip to India. I was so enamored with the lens that I ended up using it for 99% of the shots, even for landscapes. Excellent lens.

                            Solid mechanical build, light weight, and the bokeh is amazing. It outdoes other so-called bokeh kings like Canon's 85 1.2. It's optimised for shooting at 1.4, so even wide open, it's incredibly sharp. But it's a Leica lens, so what did you expect?
