The Ultimate Leica M Lens List

A list of all lenses available for Leica M-mount cameras.

This is a list of all available Leica M lenses that I’ve been able to find. There are many more Leica lenses but most of them are no longer in production so I’m trying to make this a list of lenses you can still easily buy.

What may surprise you is that there are actually a lot of very affordable lenses by Leica. The price obviously goes up as the lenses get faster but we don’t always need our lenses to be super fast. It’s nice to have one or two but there are some really nice options here for some “slower” lenses for those worried about their wallets.


Leica M Mount Lenses | The Ultimate List

This Leica M-Mount Lens list includes just about everything I could find. 

I’ve listed the average prices of each of these lenses, you can of course find them cheaper used on Ebay.

For street photography the 35mm Summilux or Summicron looks pretty amazing and they’re under $3,000.
