Hi Fred,

Is the lens available yet?

The Camera West Leica Store San Francisco shows the lens as Available for Pre Order and fill out the form to be put on the Pre Order list.

Can't wait to try it out.

I wonder when Leica will release a firmware update for all recent cameras so the new lens' code will work...

No idea, but along that line of thought - with the recent re-releases, such as the 50/1.2 - how far back in the M lineup did the firmware update go? M10? Perhaps M240 is now a stretch? I'd be surprised if the M9 got an update.

That's a very late model. Is it German or Canadian?

My guess is that the new re-issued steel rim will yield results closer to the latest models with latest glass/coating and not the original steel rim, since that original glass and coating process is not longer possible. Either way, aesthetically it's based on the original SR version and the optical formula is the same for all versions since 1961.

No, just the normal black body with the silver mount. That FB group is what prompted me to come back to this thread as I saw you posted your v2 shots there.

Very nice! I have one and it is one of the more delightful lenses Iíve bought in a long time. I didnít know you could get a silver vented hood. Iím guessing a $12,000 limited edition hood?🤣

Is it a Leica hood?

Aside from the two black hoods supplied with the lens, if one wants silver, any third party hood with a 46mm thread would work on this lens.

Here is an example of a silver hood that may work just fine:

It's amazing how distortion-free this lens is.

Here is one from v2:

Thanks.
