Those are the latest Leica related rumors I have been receiving:
- I already mentioned that the next lens to be announced by Leica will be a new 50mm f/2.0 Summicron-M ASPH. A l-camera-forum member recently discovered a new lens code in the latest M9 firmware that is probably designated for the new 50mm Cron:
"Since I had already coded the lens as code 53, I tried the other frame lines. Guess what, code 53-3 (110101 with frame 50/75) brings up a new lens called 50/2. The current 50 summicron (VI and V) and previous version (III) already have codes 33 and 23. So, is this new 53-3 code for an upcoming, new 50 summicron which has been speculated about?"
