Silver Summarits discontinued, some still in stock

I’ve always loved the look of the silver Summarit lenses ever since they were launched at Photokina in 2014. With their f/2.4 maximum aperture and classic appearance, they always offered good value for money in comparison with the slightly faster Summicron range.

I did intend to buy one of the silver versions, so attractive are they, but just didn’t get round to it. Now, it seems, they are no longer in production, although the black versions continue. Red Dot Cameras in London still have a few of the silver models in stock if you are interested.

  1. I bought a 35mm Summarit (..the previous f2.5 version..) a few years ago, when I was mooching in B.. Whatever-it-was ..ah; Bruton.. Mews for something else, and the Summarit was reduced (“shop soiled” maybe?) and I asked for a demo ..and it had really delightful out-of-focus ‘bokeh’ ..I was really surprised, and so much so that I bought it, though I hardly ever use a 35mm lens.

    Your picture really shows how softly the focus ‘falls away’.

    I’ve never really been bothered about what the lens looks like so much as what the results look like.

    Gotta go now: “Die Rosenheim-Cops” is now on (German satellite) TV!
