This 50mm f/2 Leica lens produces vivid colors and sharp contrast, as well as lovely bokeh for close-up shots. It has a minimum aperture of f/16 and a filter size of 55mm. When pushed to its widest aperture, these lenses produce some soft corners, though this sharpens admirably once the aperture has been reduced to f/4 on. Wide open, the 50mm lenses produce a glow throughout the shot, which gives it a look that some photographers believe is distinct to Leica lenses. The Leica SUMMICRON-R 50mm f/2 MF lens has a 45-degree angle of view, one that is closest to the version provided by the human eye, and is ideal for both close-ups and broader shots. There are two versions of the 50mm lenses available, one made in Germany and one made in Canada, though performance is about equal between the two types. With its reliability and durability, the Leica SUMMICRON-R 50mm f/2 MF lens offers the features needed to make it an ideal addition to your photography gear. These lenses are compatible with most Canon cameras with a Leica mount, and they produce professional-looking photos with vivid colors. Even wide open, the Leica 50mm f/2 lenses are stunningly sharp, with realistic colors that seem to come alive on film. They also deliver that classic look while forgoing distortion, allowing these Leica lenses to deliver a unique look and feel while still giving you the sharpness and focus you want to see in your best shots. Modified with an 80mm OD outer ring and extended focus ring, this lens is ideal for video shooters looking to leverage superior Leica Optics.
