The type of photography that you are planning to use is an important decision factor. Here we have evaluated the 7artisans 50mm F1.1 and the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 for their suitability to various photography scenarios:
Size and Weight Comparison
The size of a lens is a crucial factor to consider when comparing two lenses. 7artisans 50mm F1.1 is the longer of the two lenses at 49mm. The Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 with a length of 33mm, is 16mm shorter. Besides being longer, the 7artisans 50mm F1.1 also has a larger diameter of 60mm compared to the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5's 52mm diameter.
The weight of a lens is equally significant as its external dimensions, particularly if you intend to handhold your camera and lens combination for extended periods. Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 weighs 230g, 42% (170g) lighter than the 7artisans 50mm F1.1's weight of 400g.
Below you can find the dimension and weight table of the Standard Prime Lenses in Leica M Mount for size comparison purposes.
