Despite smartphones being the method of choice for millions of photographers around the world, new innovative products like the Leica Red Summicron 50mm Lens are being created to satiate the steady demand for exceptional photography equipment.

Limited to just 100 units, the lens is purported by the brand to be the world's sharpest standard lens with an unexpected red aesthetic to help highlight the rarity of the camera accessory. This helps the unit to stand apart from the majority of other lenses on the market that are predominantly black in color.

The Leica Red Summicron 50mm Lens is set to be available for purchase starting in December 2016 and will be retailing for $8,950, which makes it a high-end unit only for discerning photography professionals.
