For the very first time in Leica’s history, a Leica M-Lens will be offered in the legendary olive green
paint finish. To be produced in a planned quantity of only 500 units, the Leica Summicron-M 50 f/2
– one of Leica’s most quintessential 50 mm lenses – will sport the iconic olive green for a perfect
match with the Leica M10-P Edition “Safari” and all its military-inspired forebears to become the
Leica Summicron-M 50 f/2 Edition “Safari”.
The engravings for the distance scale measured in feet and the focal length are highlighted in red
paint and stand in deep contrast to the bright white engravings on the lens, all of which are
carefully applied by hand. The technical specifications and optical performance of the Summicron-
M 50 f/2 Edition “Safari” match the popular serial production model.
As the Leica M-System is known for its incredibly vast lens compatibility with old and new models,
this new special edition lens can be used with all previously produced M-Cameras since 1954 –
standard and special edition alike – for a perfectly matched look or a starkly contrasted aesthetic
