Originally produced from 1955-1963, the Summaron-M 28mm was known for its unique image qualities and impressive depth of field. Today, that lens has been recreated to recall the analog-feel of that lens in modern M-system cameras. Just like the original, the lens is incredibly compact with a length that is less than 2 cm, making it perfect for quick snaps and street photography. They've also gone to great lengths to recreate the original lens hood, which is machined from solid brass and then goes through a turning and bending process to achieve its final shape.
