I have done a short review of how this lens from 1958 performs on a modern digital M240.

The output from the lens holds up well despite its age. I am sure that if the lens is 're-issued' by Leica it will be thoroughly modernised.

Nice little lens William, and some good images. I love those compact lenses.

 

I've started using my 35mm f3.5 Summaron 1951 a bit more lately, as I am learning to control its (uncoated) flare.

 

These slow lenses use the better, middle parts of lens design, the trade-off being speed of course.

Fine images from a very old little gem... but frankly I doubt that Leica will re-issue a 28 f 5,6... , even if they would like to have a "pancake" small lens, i think they could easily engineer a very compact f 3,5 / 4...

Luigi I think you will have to eat your hat on this post. I too thought they would never reissue this lens but it is a "fait accompli". I guess we were both wrong but I never posted my opinion.

      Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you know I published a review of the TTArtisan 50mm 0.95 lens and I think the findings might be interesting for you.
      I hope you enjoy the reading!

      Hello members,
      I’m curious about the new Summaron-M 28mm 5.6
      It’s Focusing tab stuck at the framelines selector and cannot go to close focus. 
      Does this occurs to every M-body that has rectangle framelines selector? 😅
      Thanks in advance

      This is an old-ish (5 months) review, but IMHO it is worth reading if you are on the fence with regard to purchasing the M10 Monochrom.
      This camera costs a lot of money, but make no mistake:  There is no other camera even remotely like it being made anywhere in the world.

      Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors.
      Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike.
      I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio.
      Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.

      Had a chance to go hands on with an M10 Monochrom in New York for a couple of hours with the Summicron-M 28 ASPH, APO-Summicron-M 50 and Summilux-M 90. Thought you might find this interesting:
