All three finishes are unique and newly available for the first time for each of these lenses, and will be made available in very limited quantities. Product availability of each lens will commence one-by-one.

LEICA APO-SUMMICRON-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH., black chrome – Reminiscent of the vintage Summicron 50 mm f/2 (II) from 1956, the APOSummicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH., black chrome features the characteristically scalloped focusing ring, with barrel components machined from brass. This special lens has engravings for the focal length and distances measured in feet highlighted with red enamel paint, meticulously applied by hand. The classic package is completed with a vintage-style, round brass lens hood engraved with ‘Made in Germany’ and a lens cap carved from solid brass.
The retro-style black chrome version of this lens matches the incredible capabilities and image rendering of the standard Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH., and will be limited to 700 lenses worldwide

LEICA SUMMILUX-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH., silver anodized – The extremely fast Summilux-M 28 mm f/1.4 ASPH. wide-angle lens is now for the first time available in a silver anodized version. Owners of M-System cameras and lenses in silver now have another matching high-performance lens for their systems in one of the most versatile and fast wide-angles of the Leica portfolio.
The performance and technical specifications of the lens are identical to those of its serial production counterpart. The edition is limited to just 300 units worldwide.

LEICA SUMMARON-M 28 mm f/5.6, matte black paint – The special series of the Leica Summaron-M 28 mm f/5.6 finished in matte black paint bolsters the range of classic lenses from Leica with a new and exclusive color option, making for a stealthier variant of such an iconic lens with vintage aesthetic signature. The special paint used here is particularly resistant to wear and gives the lens an appearance almost identical to that of the classic black chrome finishes, while the aperture engravings seen from the front are filled out in bright and bold red paint.
The Summaron-M is modeled on a screw mount lens produced at the Leitz factory in Wetzlar from 1955 to 1963. With a length of less than 2 centimeters, this extremely compact wide-angle is the smallest lens of the M-System portfolio.
The performance and technical specifications of this lens match the serial production product. The edition is limited to 500 lenses worldwide.
