In Guide to Leica:

Leica 75mm f/2.4 Summarit-M Aperture Series: Veiling Flare + Bokeh, Barn Interior

This series shows a disturbing issue with veiling flare that might warrant a recall of the lens.

The example merely isolates the issue to make it totally obvious; it was previously commented upon and shown in the Mining Camp Bunkhouse and Green Barn series—the issue arises commonly during field use.

Bokeh is also shown for out of focus items from ƒ/2.4, ..., f/8.

Flare for no good reason
f5.6 @ 1/25 sec, ISO 200; 2015-03-15 12:07:16
LEICA M (Typ 240) + Summarit-M 1:2.4/75
