The APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. Edition “Safari” stands out due to both its compact and well-proven optical design, as well as its legendary focal length which can provide natural perspectives. Its fine picture quality extends all the way to the extreme corners of the image field, and outstanding contrast is achieved at all apertures. The APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. Edition “Safari” corresponds in its technical features to the product from the series production and is not only the perfect match for all those who own a “Safari” camera: the lens is just as compatible with all M cameras with the special olive green paint finish that have been released so far, as it is with all M cameras built since 1954. The exceptionally hard-wearing, olive green paint has a long-standing tradition at Leica. The first Leicas to be treated with this superior-quality enamel finish were designed for military use. It was not long before the cameras became widely renowned as robust tools that could withstand even the most extreme conditions.
