Leica red finish

Leica have announced a red edition of the APO-SUMMICRON M 50mm f/2 ASPH. lens. 

The red anodised finish lens will be made in an extremely limited run of only 100 worldwide, and will be available from December 2016. 

Leica say this lens is the world's sharpest standard lens and uses a floating element in its design for shooting at close distances. 

The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50mm f.2 ASPH. in red anodised finish is scheduled to be available from 9 December 2016, at a suggested retail price of £7,575 including VAT.

And just how many who buy this version are ever going to find out? I wouldn't be at all surprised if none of them ever leave the collection cabinet...Wink
