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
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.
Leica M Prime Lenses
If you want a Leica lens and you’re on a budget, the 35mm Summilux or Summicron looks pretty amazing and they’re under $3,000.

Leica M Zoom Lens
Leica has one zoom lens that has a range from 16-18-21mm. It’s technically not a zoom lens, rather a lens that has three focal lengths built into it that you can switch between.
|Tri Elmart M 16-18-21mm f4 ASPH||B&H|
Voigtlander / Cosina M-Mount Lenses
The list of every Sony E-Mount Voigtlander lens is looking really nice and continues to grow.
In terms of quality, they are up there with Leica. I would say they are just below Leica, but above Zeiss.
Any Voigtlander lens should be able to last you a lifetime if you take care of them.
This list of Voigtlander M lenses includes a lot of the older models that are no longer available, you might still be able to find them on Ebay.

ZEISS M-Mount Lenses
The Zeiss manual lenses are the cream of the crop. Zeiss has a lot of consumer lenses out there for Sony now and there badge is all over a ton of crap. But they still are legendary and the Leica M lenses by ZEISS are top of the line.

Handevision IBERIT M-Mount Lenses
Handevision is a German-Chinese joint venture. Designed with German precision, build in China. Both companies are very good and make great products.
These lenses are made with high quality anodized aluminum, brass and stainless steel. I personally love these lenses especially on my Sony A7r III. They are light weight manual lenses with very good optics that are just about perfect for street photography.

7Artisans M-Mount Lenses
7Artisans makes some fun cheap lenses. They’re usually not great, especially compared to Voigtlander or Handevision, but they can be fun. The 7Artisans 35mm f2 lens I have, it sucks, don’t bother with it if you’re a Leica shooter.

There are a lot of really great options by Voigtlander, Zeiss and Leica at a lot of reasonable prices. I may be missing a few lenses as new lenses are always coming out and I’m only one man. This lens list does includes just about every lens I could find for Leica M cameras. If I’m missing anything let me know.
