Leica Summarit 50mm f/1.5 Ver.1, Silver Screw M39 LTM

Leica Summarit 50mm f/1.5 Ver.1, Silver Screw M39 LTM

Sold

The overall contrast of this Summarit at full aperture was rather low as well as the good definition at the centre. The maximum aperture of the lens in the 50' period allowed photographers to take pictures in difficult situations..

The low contrast and the presence of abberrations of this lens could be mitigated by under-exposure.

Most lens aberrations grow disproportionatetely when the aperture is doubled. When designers were still struggling to get decent performance out of an 1:2/50mm design, it seemed a bit rash to introduce a 1.5 lens.

Why Leitz have opted for the Schneider lens and did not wait for the Berek solution that was being created in the same period, is a mystery, but it might be that the introduction of the Zeiss Contax RF with a good 1.5 lens, was seen as a commercial challenge.

The performance of the lens at full aperture is however barely acceptable for the intended use. Finer detail in the centre area (about 5 mm image height) is recorded with good visibility, but the very low contrast and strong presence of coma, especially in high contrast situations reduce the useful recording capabilities.
