Press release:

Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. in Matte Black: The especially robust Summicron-M variant with integrated lens hood is now available. Wetzlar, 7th April 2022. With the matte black Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH., Leica introduces a particularly resilient variant of the M-System’s ultra-fast wide-angle lens. The specialist-paint finish offers extremely scratch-resistant properties, along with a discrete appearance that is ideally suited to classic reportage photography. The light green inlaid engravings on the lens have been designed to complement the M10-P “Reporter” but will also make an excellent addition to any other M camera.
In contrast to the standard Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH., the matte black variant features an integrated lens hood which extends via one quick twist for ultimate convenience and ease.

The Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. in a matte black finish can now be purchased at specialist retailers and Leica Camera, 64-66 Duke Street, London, W1K 6JD for £4,000.00.
