Pedro Ferreira on the New $8,700 Leica Apo-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH.

Fashion photographer Pedro Ferreira uses his Leica M9 and the new Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. lens to capture images. Pedro explains why the M-System is his camera of choice and how the Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. lens performs with the strong backlight in the studio.

This lens is a new milestone in the history of optical design that achieves previously unattainable values in all technical performance characteristics. For instance, there is practically no fall-off at the edges - even at full aperture - in the MTF curves for image sharpness. Even the finest details are rendered with more than 50% contrast - a previously unheard of value that confirms the exceptional properties of this lens.
This enormous contrast enables extremely sharp images with superb corner-to-corner detail rendition in all photographic situations. At the same time, the apochromatic correction of the lens minimises chromatic aberration on sharp edges to ensure natural rendition of every detail. This results in outstanding pictures - even in large-format prints. The Leica APO-Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. provides discerning photographers with a new high-performance lens in the portfolio of standard focal lengths.[via Leica]
