Powerful, lightweight and designed to be easy to operate, the Leica Summarit-M 50 mm f/2.5's applications are as varied as life itself. It corresponds closely to the field of vision and viewing patterns of the human eye and offers an impressively neutral and natural perspective.

Strengths:    great image quality, nice mechanical precision, small size, very low weight

Weaknesses:    only one: the optional Leica metallic sunshade (expensive!) rotates very easily in its thread...

Bottom Line:   
A very well performing lens, even at aperture fully open. I use it on M9 (digital) and also older M5 and M6 analog cameras and have been always extremely pleased with the results. Superior sharpness, no visible distortions, very flare-resistant in opposite light.

The max. aperture of f=2,5 I've found not so much disadvantage over a much more costly Summicron f=2.0 lens. Compared to other Leica lenses, this seems a good value for me.
