This is the rumored new silver version of the Leica Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH lens


Last month I reported a rumor about Leica announcing a new silver version of the Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH lens. A reader just sent me the above picture of the upcoming lens. The photo I used in my previous post is the 28mm Lux lens from the Leica M limited edition "Leica 100" set (currently $7000 off) which has more of a titanium finish. The new silver version of the Leica Summilux-M 28mm f/1.4 ASPH lens will look like the current silver M lenses. The price is expected to be a few hundred dollars higher than the $6,295 price tag of the black version.

Leica is going to have a big press event on November 22nd, but I am still not sure if this lens will be announced then.

If you have any details on the upcoming Leica announcement, you can contact me anonymously here.

    No, that’s a quick photoshop job where all but the mount has been inverted and hue shifted to make the print and index ball red. Compare the shadows and specular details to the standard 28 summilux product photo. Not a genuine product shot.

    • The red ball looks weird, indeed. Anyway, I’m more interesting in their new “CL” camera though, than a new color version of a lens.

      Can’t believe he gets fooled this easily.

        Rumor site, not stated as factual like the news 🙂 Fake rumors, oh my!!! Fun site no matter.

        • Yes, correct 🙂 Go back to my previous old posts with leaked pictures – there is always at least one comment to say the picture is fake. 99% of the time the pictures are legit.

            And if correct the picture is fake it doesn’t make the info any less true or a rumor 🙂

          • yes, also correct 🙂

      YES, you can tell cause where the brightness line should be its replaced by a shadow line if thats the correct term for it. A black one has been taken and a ‘negative’ has been produced of it and than color added where needed. Well its something at least before the real pictures, right! Something to feed the ego

  • Larry Dawson

    Nice, and way, way, overpriced.

    It does not matter if the image is faithful or not. what matters is the rumor, which I hope will be fulfilled.
