By ErikvwLast week i visited the Leica store in Amsterdam and bought the Leica 50mm summicron F2.0 “Safari Edition”.
For long time this lens was sold out, but suddenly the got them delivered again.
Leica communicates that only 500 pieces will be made.
My question is: are they producing more lenses of this type now, or is this a part of lenses of the 500 pieces they made?
Did anybody here something about it?

By Coppereye1960I shot with Canon 5Ds until about 3 years ago when I went for a dalliance with Fuji then let my heart take over and invested heavily in the Leica M series. My first lens was the Summicron 50mm an ex demo but mint condition from Classic Cameras in London. Before this my goto focal length was between 80mm and 200mm with a canon 85mm 1.8 my favourite (there is a faster 85mm but the difference in IQ is not worth the extra money). My second lens was the Leica 90mm Summicron APO - obviously going to be my favourite lens...... errr no I have used it a couple of times on Weddings but seem to go back to 50mm or the 28mm of the Q. I have started to collect 50mm lenses and I have:
50mm Summicron f2
50mm Summilux f1.4
50mm Elmar f3.5 Collapsible
50mm 7Artisans f1.1 <-----------------dirt cheap but quite a character
I'm at the point where perhaps I need to trim the number of 50mm's I have. I have an M10, Monochrom (CCD version) and M3 and can't use all three at the same time (I've tried). I like the Summilux and will keep that and then collapsible Elmar on the M3 or Monochrom renders character images.
I have a couple of options for my main 50mm which is the 50mm Summicron APO or the 50 Noctilux. So I think the Summicron f2 will need to go and probably the 7Artisans. I could take the 90mm out of the mix as I have an S-E with a 120mm lens and its not a lens I've used much.
Has anyone used both the Summicron APO and Noctilux? As I like shooting in low light does the Noctilux have the edge or for my portrait work would the summicron APO be better.
I'm driving myself to distraction over this. I have found that Leica owners are constructive and less likely to threaten violence if someone has an opposite opinion.
