Leica is mixing the classic look of the 1954 Summicron 50mm with the modern technology contained in the current lens to create a limited edition option for Leica collectors and photographers.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the International Leica Society (LHSA), Leica launched the special edition APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH lens on Thursday, November 30.

The company’s current Leica Summicron 50mm f/2 lens is the high-end camera company’s sharpest standard lens.

The new special edition option mixes the modern tech that makes that sharpness possible with the classic design of the original lens from the 1950s.

Like the lens without special edition status, the new 50mm is designed specifically for modern high-resolution cameras.

While much of the technology is the same, the exterior of the lens takes on an even more classic look.
