The Leica Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. Edition "Safari" wide-angle lens impresses with its brilliant imaging performance and allows the use of selective sharpness. The reproduction of the finest details produces images of exceptional plasticity. The Summicron-M 1:2/28 ASPH. Edition "Safari" corresponds in its technical features to the product from the series production and is not only the perfect match for all those who own a "Safari" camera: the lens is just as compatible with all M cameras with the special olive green paint finish that have been released so far, as it is with all M cameras built since 1954.
The exceptionally hard-wearing, olive green paint has a long-standing tradition at Leica. The first Leicas to be treated with this superior-quality enamel finish were designed for military use. It was not long before the cameras became widely renowned as robust tools that could withstand even the most extreme conditions.
About the Summicrom-M 28mm f/2
This wide-angle lens is fast, compact and delivers exceptional performance. Its outstanding speed makes it particularly versatile and delivers brilliant imaging results even in difficult lighting conditions.
At its maximum aperture, the Summicron-M 28 mm f/2 ASPH. already delivers impressively rich contrast, differentiated reproduction of even the finest structures, a soft and smooth bokeh and extremely high resolution. This is due to its recalculated optical design, which almost completely eliminates the astigmatic differences in the image field caused by the cover glass of the sensor to ensure excellent image quality from corner to corner in every picture.
