Starting with the Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 last year, Leica has started reissuing classic lenses from their past, keeping the original optical designs while implementing modern manufacturing and lens coatings. This allows M users the to experience the distinctive vintage look without any of the drawbacks of 80 year-old lenses. Haze, fungus, element separation and scuffed glass from cleaning are no fun.

This time around, they have brought back  the legendary Thambar-M 90mm f/2.2 soft focus lens. It features a unique central filter for even more pronounced effects. We got one here and couldn’t wait to check it out. And since we like to share, we figured we’d do a quick unboxing and overview of the lens. Enjoy!

The lens is priced at $6,495. Leica Store Miami is currently accepting pre-orders, either by calling 305-921-4433, emailing or clicking the link below:
