Leica APO-Summicron-M 90mm f/2 ASPH. Overview

Characterized by its apochromatic designation, the APO-Summicron-M 90mm f/2 ASPH. from Leica is a fast short telephoto lens designed for M-mount rangefinder cameras. As an apochromat, this lens utilizes a pair of anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to virtually eliminate color fringing and chromatic aberrations for notable clarity and color accuracy. One aspherical element and two high refractive index glass elements are also used to control spherical aberrations and distortion, as well as to maintain a high degree of sharpness. Its manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3.3' away and its compact design also incorporates a built-in extendable lens hood to shield the front element.

Apochromatic design employs two anomalous partial dispersion glass elements to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy throughout the aperture range.
In addition to the apochromatic designation, this lens also uses one aspherical element and two high refractive index elements to significantly reduce distortion and spherical aberrations while also increasing overall sharpness and edge-to-edge illumination.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field.
Manual focus design provides a minimum focusing distance of 3.3' with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:9.
Built-in extendable lens hood shades and protects the front element to reduce lens flare and ghosting. Additionally, the front of the lens is threaded to accept 55mm screw-in filters.

The 55mm filter ring inside my lens broke in a fall. It appears to be a small ring that threads into the lens barrel and also serves as a stop to prevent the integrated hood from sliding off. WHERE can I purchase this replacement part?!
Asked by: Jonathan
You are correct about the ring. It has inside and outside threads on the same ring (it's an adapter). If you don't have a local camera shop that deals in Leica kit then I would contact the Leica service center. There is a replacement part number for it. Look in the booklet that came with the lens if I remember correctly. Even without the part number they will be able to look it up.

Dose this lens block the viewfinder of M10R?

Dose this lens block the viewfinder of M10R?
Asked by: Greg
Yes, this lens would obstruct the viewfinder a bit. Does it obstruct the frame lines? Less so. This can be a difficult question to answer because different people will have a different definition of how much viewfinder blockage is acceptable. The Leica Visoflex is always a good consideration when using lenses like these. B&H # LEVSB, Leica cat # 18767.
