Leica Camera Incorporated will introduce a new collection of lenses for analog
and digital Leica rangefinder cameras: the Leica Summarit-M class. The four lenses
LEICA SUMMARIT-M 35mm f2.5, LEICA SUMMARIT-M 50mm f2.5, LEICA SUMMARIT-M 75mm
f2.5 and LEICA SUMMARIT-M 90mm f2.5 cover the most popular focal lengths in the
Leica M system. All Summarit-M lenses were designed and are manufactured in Germany
and will bear the "Made in Germany" quality stamp.



All letter and number engravings are made with the traditional "Leitz-Norm"
font as originally used by Leitz Wetzlar during the 1960s, and the red button
on the lens mount is consistent with the original color used on Leitz lenses produced
since the introduction of the M mount through the 1960s. Each Leica Summarit-M
lens is supplied with a metal lens front cap, a lens hood cap and a velours pouch
for storage. High-quality all-metal lens hoods are available as accessories.
