reviewswhat are people saying

"It is difficult to find fault with this lens. At f1.4 it is sharp from corner to corner. Resistant to flare and has the creamy bokeh I prefer."

bhphotovideo.com

"In my opinion, the new version of the 50 1:1.4 Summilux-M ASPH lens is one of the two best lenses for all-around general photography, including street photos, low light photos, and selective focus photos."

"Perhaps price is a con, but I know my search for a 50mm for my Leica is at an end."
