Leica are re-issuing a true classic: the Summaron-M 28 mm f/5.6. With the introduction of this ultra-compact wide-angle lens, Leica once again prove the merits of swimming against the tide. Be it with an M model that only records luminance values, a digital M without display or, as in this case, by modernising a lens from the year 1955 while retaining its optical calculations.
The original Summaron featured a screw thread, whereas the Summaron-M 28 mm f/5.6 is, as the name suggests, equipped with an M bayonet. Aside from the 6-bit lens code and some minor details in the design, the lens has not been changed. It is consciously intended to offer analogue-style imagery, complete with vignetting.
