    I did not catch up with marketing from Leica - it was necessary to release the gold version with a circulation of 50 copies (for China) for $ 25000.

    • Victor

      For China - because Chinese students spend more on parties alone?

    • koba

      Leica knows a lot about the Chinese market, after all, they themselves published data that almost 50% of their sales come from China. For a person who does not live in China, 16000 is a strange price, but for those who live here, other numbers immediately appear in his head - this is exactly 100000 yuan, and this is pronounced very well in Chinese, this indirectly means well-being, wealth, success, so marketers set the right price, focusing primarily on Chinese buyers, especially in these difficult times outside of China. So everything is very simple and clear. There is also one caveat - they reduced the price for the black version (slightly less than 50000 yuan) in order to satisfy ordinary users, so to speak, rogue leukomaniacs. But for us there is only one question - but we will never buy this lens from what prices they have set.

  • Dmitriy

    The world, again, has long gone from the uia

  • Rodion

    With two aspherical elements and 6/4 at 1.2, it's probably not bad. But we understand ...

  • Sergei

    Maybe D.A. Medvedev will buy it.
    He has long loved and respected Leica. And he has suitable cameras.

    • Oleg

      He has Zenith

      • Michael

        Which Leica

    • koba

      Medvedev is a titled and commercially successful photographer - one of his pictures of the old city was sold for $ 1,5 million, and after that he healed on a grand scale. According to forecasts, he is going to sell a few more of his masterpieces in order to maintain the level of his current life, so others need to grow up to the photographer D. Medvedev ... He also recorded one video clip about photography, is on YouTube, and there he talked about Lake's special spirit ... And it's true - without a special spirit it is impossible to buy cameras for $ 20000 and lenses for them for $ 10000, and this spirit must be extremely strong.

      • Oleg

        where can you get acquainted with Medvedev's works?

        • Victor

          At his solo exhibitions or on the World Wide Web, but for the second, you need to take refresher courses on the basics of google search.

      • Oleg

        Are you trolling Koba? A photo sold at a charity auction for 51 million rubles and bought by another moneybag, that is, the money went to Dmitry Anatolyevich's moneybox, and not to charity? A special spirit - is it a special spirit of a government official with duck houses and golden brushes? All of Medvedev's works that I have seen in the public domain are made according to the same principle: if you point and click for them, the medium format with which he poses is not necessary. From the interview, I understood that D.A. shoots with large and modern lenses and the key word here is big. Grow to his level? I can understand the level of Banksy, even though he is not a photographer, there each work carries a certain message, he never sawed the state budget and made himself. But I can't understand the special spirit of a state official

        • Andrei

          Regular income legalization.

        • koba

          What does trolling have to do with it? I say what happened. If anyone knows, when they talk about the so-called. charity, it is legally enough to transfer up to 20% of the amount received, so companies and actions of this kind have divorced, how many Hollywood stars spend in the USA, and then build their own mansions. He shoots with all cameras, from Keno full-frame to medium format Leica, he shoots exactly as he does not have much time for photography, so he captures moments in a matter of seconds. I think so…

      • US6IBD

        Bribery was beautifully arranged!

      • Sergei

        Having smiled at the soul. Z Medvadєva D.A. the same photographer, as the president of the Moscow region. What are the details of the yogo pictures, such as in the hem. I’m the very name to go: pictures, not photographs. You have a photographer in Moscow region. In Ukraine, there is one such “fortographic gene”. It was called Leonid Chernovetskiy, in the people of the mav it was nicknamed Lyonya "Cosmos". So that album has seen photographs. Hilarious and only, for those who like "Yak is not necessary for a photographer".
        And what about Leikin’s active, then I don’t have a wine list - why don’t I make gold (on a color) for 25 thousand $?))) I knew buyers for such a bi. The understanding of beauty and prettiness is even diametrically opposed to the present day. Yak and pre-vernacular and professionalism)

  • Michael

    No rhinestones from Swaroffski - no need !!!!

    The classic was right: "... they were terribly far from the people ..."

    • Arkady Shapoval

      There is one at hand now. Here they remembered the Chinese. So, Chinese 50 / 0,95 by 1.2 is better than Leica in terms of resolution in the center. But, of course, Leika's drawing is gorgeous :)

    All 100 silver lenses were sold out, after which the real cost of this lens has already doubled according to some sources:
