  Editor’s comment:

  Through the beautiful aluminum housing and the classic M bayonet design, It can be seen that the positioning of this lens launched by MS Optics is very accurate, which is to provide a new and more personalized lens selection for the majority of Leica users. From a technical point of view, whether it is structure or platform, it is neither innovative nor 100% original, but today’s lens manufacturing concepts and processes will be greatly improved from decades ago. It is believed that this “re-engraved product” based on the Zeiss 50mm F2 Sonnar architecture can achieve the effect of being better than blue in terms of product strength.
