  • B. R. P.

    For the price, I don't understand - has it become cheaper or more expensive?)

    • Michael

      More expensive) Old non-APO about $ 3500

      • Jea reth

        It has not really risen in price. Knowing the watering can, the APO versions of the lenses go on sale in parallel with the base model. I don’t know how much it is, but the lake positions such lenses as different.

      Is there a difference? :)

  • Trueash

    And what is the pimp on the focusing ring? Leash like on I-22?

    • Jea reth

      Yes, this is such a proprietary leash. Leica makes a lot of lenses with it.

  • Vadim

    Balin, but where does the price come from? Or is it deliberately done immediately as a collector's item?

    • Rodion

      Well this is a watering can. For earthly needs there is yong 35/2 from the article above)

    • koba

      When setting this price, they were guided by the new Nikon Z 55 / 0.95, which costs 8000 dollars, and in order not to hit the face in the mud, they slightly surpassed it, the brand obliges.

      • koba

        Latest news - Leika announced that from April 1 (no joke!) Will increase prices for its products by an average of 2-5%, otherwise they will be khan. This lens was mentioned among the first, meaning its price will increase to almost $ 8500. This is too much, we agreed to 8200 one way or another ...
