| p.1 #10 · Leica 50 AA vs. 50 Summilux |
If only it was the Lux's street price.
Yeah, the price is tough. I could understand if the 50/2 was the same price as the 50/1.4, since you're gaining some IQ and loosing a stop, but another few thousand bucks makes it tough to justify. That f2 performance certainly looks outrageous, though.
B&H Photo has the 50mm AA listed for $7195, That is quite a price for a normal lens.
Yeah, I basically only shoot normal lenses, so it would be right up my alley, and I'd consider it if it was in the realm of the 50 Summilux in price, but $7K is steep. It does look to be a world beating lens, though, so I'm sure it will sell well.
Would we expect anything else from Leica when they charge such a premium price for an optic? But, in my case I hardly use my 50mm R lens. Tuesday, I just picked up my 50mm and 35mm R Summicrons from Leica USA after a cleaning and lube. But, we all have different needs and uses.
