Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 Safari Overview

Characterized by its distinct olive green exterior, the Leica Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. Edition 'Safari' is a unique lens inspired by the Safari camera legacy, featuring a green baked enamel finish, and available in a limited edition of 500 units.

A bright wide-angle prime with consistent performance throughout the aperture range, the Summicron-M 28mm f/2 ASPH. is well-suited to reportage and environmental photography in a variety of working conditions. Aside from the wide perspective, this 28mm f/2 is also characterized by a sophisticated nine elements in six groups design, which incorporates a single aspherical element to control distortions and spherical aberrations throughout the focusing and aperture ranges. The optical design further contributes to refined handling of lens flare and ghosting and maintains a high degree of sharpness even when working at f/2. An indispensable prime for highlighting your environment, the compact stature, smooth manual focus control, and bright maximum aperture make this a truly versatile option for M shooters.

One aspherical element is featured in the optical design to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and clarity. This design also contributes to a marked reduction of astigmatism and promotes edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the aperture range.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:21.9.
Integrated telescoping lens hood shields the front lens element to reduce flare and glare as well as protect against accidental impacts.
