"Leica Camera is happy to announce that two of its most popular lenses, the Leica Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH and the Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH are now available in black chrome finish. Only 500 units of each lens will be manufactured.
The focusing scale on both lenses is in red and the lenses come with a round metal lens hood and metal lens cap. The matte black surfaces of both lenses give it a unique look and a resilient finish. The Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 has the classic outer design of its predecessor from 1959, with its contoured focusing and aperture rings, while maintaining the optical design of the current ASPH model.
These lenses will be available at all Leica Stores, Boutiques and dealers. The lenses come with a three-year passport warranty. We anticipate receiving the first shipment of lenses at the end of this April."
