Fit for any situation
The know-how of Leica's engineers, together with the latest developments in manufacturing technology, has resulted in this outstanding standard lens. It has a natural image angle that corresponds to a human eye view and is ideal for available-light situations, selective-focus shots, and even fine art photography – making it a top choice in assembling a Leica M-Lens outfit.

The Leica Summilux-M 1:1,4/50 mm ASPH. at "Wacken Open Air"
25 year ago it has been an exceptional idea: North of Hamburg, in the tiny village of Wacken, local Heavy Metal Bands played for some hundert fans in a tent on the countryside. Today 85.000 paying visitors make a pilgrimage to "Wacken Open Air" celebrating at the worlds largest Heavy Metal Festival. The heart of the festival are not only the conducting bands but more the "Wacken Family", the parties and peaceful celebration. Leica photographer Michael Agel visited the festival once more this year – and captured the special atmosphere of the "black giant", as the "Rolling Stone" titeled the festival, with the Leica Summilux-M 1:1,4/50 mm ASPH. at the Leica M Monochrom.
