A Look back at the Leica 50 f/1.5 Summarit. (Video)
By Steve Huff
Hey guys! I whipped up another video with a look back at the Leica 50 Sumamrit f/1.5 Lens, the vintage classic with swirly bokeh and some glow ; ) Some hate this lens, some love it. I see it as an occasional use “Artistic” lens, if you get a good copy. Sort of in line with the DREAM LENS from Canon which I also made a video for last week.
The 50 Summarit is a lens one can find on e-bay or other used lens avenues, and rages in price from $400 to $2000 depending on mount and condition. You can find it in M mount or screw mount, and it offers a super unique rendering that is 100% vintage. Take a look at the video below with photos and commentary on this cool but interesting lens.
