Leica has today announced a completely new range of compact M series lenses; the 35 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm and 90 mm Summarit-M, all with a maximum aperture of F2.5. These lenses are clearly aimed at being more 'affordable' than previous M lenses and will be ideal companions to the M8 digital rangefinder. On the M8 these lenses provide equivalent fields of view (rounded) of 47 mm, 67 mm, 100 mm and 120 mm respectively. These lenses do not feature any aspherical elements.
