The Leica Summarit 50mm f2.5

In March, I picked up a heavily used Leica Summarit 50mm f2.5. I don’t love (or know how to write) gear reviews so I thought I’d just list some things that have stood out to me in the last month.

(Maybe I do know how to write gear reviews…)

Comparisons

I have two other 50mm M lenses: the Leica Summilux and the Voightlander APO-Lanthar. In short:

All three are very capable lenses. The Summarit’s size is its main advantage - it’s trivial to carry a camera with it attached, which means I’ve been carrying it nonstop since I bought it. That’s about as glowing a recommendation as I can give.
