LEICA SUMMICRON 90mm f/2 Review

 

Styles

The LEICA SUMMICRON 90mm f/2 was made for 22 years.

The optics never changed, but the cosmetics changed often.

It came in both screw and bayonet mount, althogh the screw mount was rarely ordered.

There was also a special version with a presetdiaphragm. This was ot help the sorry people who tried to shoot sports on a Visoflex SLR reflex attachement.

Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

If you find this as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

The biggest help is to use these links to Adorama, Amazon, Calumet, Ritz, J&R and when you get your goodies. It costs you nothing and is a huge help to me. eBay is always a gamble, but all the other places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

Thanks for reading!

Ken
