The new TTartisan 28mm f/5.6 lens for Leica M-mount is now open for orders again



The first batch of the new TTartisan 28mm f/5.6 lens for Leica M-mount is already shipped to customers who ordered it last year. Today TTartisan started taking orders again on their official website (they do offer international shipping). The lens is also available for pre-order at Adorama, Amazon, B&H Photo, AliExpress, and Pergear but I think the fastest way to get the lens is if you order it directly from the manufacturer’s website.







Previous coverage of the TTartisan 28mm f/5.6 lens can be found here and here:

Is that the rumored Leica Q3 camera?


We already got the first Leica Q3 camera rumors from one of the official Leica M11 videos.

Here is another, even better Leica Q3 Easter egg: the above picture is part of the latest Leica FOTOS app – the camera displayed looks like a Leica Q but with a different position of the side buttons and with a tiltable screen (first for Leica?). For comparison, here are the back views of the Leica Q and Leica Q2 cameras:
