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

The first Leica lens to receive their distinct olive green finish, the Summicron-M 50mm f/2 Edition 'Safari' is reminiscent of of the Safari camera legacy, characterized by its green baked enamel finish, and available in a limited edition of 500 units.

A versatile all-around lens, the Summicron-M 50mm f/2 is a normal-length prime featuring a fast f/2 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light as well as offering greater control over depth of field. A six elements, four groups optical design provides even brightness and sharpness across the image frame, and also helps to virtually eliminate distortion for clean, natural rendering. Beyond its optical performance, the lens is also compact for everyday use, its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3', and it has a built-in expandable lens hood to prevent lens flare and ghosting.

Will this lens fit on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 ...

Will this lens fit on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Digital Camera or a Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera?
Asked by: Mary Jo
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 has a permanently mounted lens and cannot switch to another lens. The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 needs an adapter to take the Leica Summicron-M 50mm f/2 Edition 'Safari' Lens. Here is the adapter I wish to recommend. Panasonic DMW-MA2M Leica M Mount Adapter for Leica Lenses and Lumix G Micro System Cameras B&H # PADMWMA2M. If I may, I would suggest that you also consider native mount lenses for the GH5. They have excellent image and build quality and are purposely designed for the format whereas any Leica M mount lens is adapted. Here are three to consider. https://bhpho.to/2RJkAna
