Leica 50/2 APO Summicron-M ASPH: Flare Control

In Guide to Leica are three examples of veiling and ghosting flare with the Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH.

The results are jaw-dropping, in a bad way. So disappointing that I must reevaluate my plans to obtain this lens until and unless Leica addresses it.

UPDATE: reader Peter W has confirmed the issue and I’ve added his comments to the flare page.

UPDATE 2: see possible explanation.

Leica M Typ 240 + Leica 50mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M-ASPH @ f/2

Note the flat-line shadow across the top area, apparently caused by the camera internally.
