The LEICA Super-Angulon-M 4.0/21mm 10959 is the first super wide-angle lens for the Leica and a true classic. The Leitz Super-Angulon 4.0/21mm introduced in 1958 is based on an optical calculation by Schneider-Kreuznach. The symmetrical design of the lens promised very good imaging performance for the time, and even from today’s perspective, a well-preserved lens delivers high image quality. Officially in the range from 1958 to 1963 with both screw thread connection and M bayonet it appears that the Super-Angulon was however only made in 1958 and 1959 and sold from stock thereafter. An understandable step, because it was a lens with a high purchase price and a rather small field of application. The Super-Angulon 21mm was mainly used in advertising, architectural and technical photography and was also advertised by Leica. In the version with M bayonet, a total of around 5000 pieces were produced
