Leica has announced the 28mm Summaron-M f/5.6 lens for the Leica M system. The lens is more than just a throwback to a classic design from the mid 1950s. It is a lens from the 1950s, at least optically, featuring the same design as the original. We can assume that the lens features modern coatings, but otherwise, if you are looking for a classic Leica glow, this wide-angle lens might be right up your alley. This lens is available by special order only and full payment of $2,495 USD is required in advance. Read more below for details!

All things must come to an end... Including Leica's seemingly perpetual 12% savings program in the USA launched a year ago on May 1, 2015. Alas, this coming May 10, 2016 will mark the end of the program. Because of the weakness of the Euro to the Dollar exchange rate, the program was renewed an unprecedented twelve times; basically every month. Most M, S and TL lenses are going up with a range of increases from $79-$975 depending on the item. Better hurry! Read more below!
