This week brought about a curious lens that I’ve been searching for the best part of a year. The (1956) Leitz Summaron 2.8cm f5.6 screw mount lens – a tiny lens (150g) with a demonstably large character. A recent remake of this classic in M-mount can be bought brand new at an eye-watering price and so it was a moment of pure joy when I happen to stumble upon the original version this week, second hand and in pristine condition.
What a lens!
