This is the MS Optical Sonnetar 50mm f/1.1 MC lens


Japancamerahunter has posted all the details on the new MS Optical Sonnetar 50mm f/1.1 MC lens for Leica M mount and is now accepting pre-orders at ¥65,000 (around $830):

"It has a 2 layer multicoating on Tantalum glass. The German made iris is smooth with no click stops. It is a circular centre 14 blade iris, which should make for some very interesting and soft effects. The lens itself feels solid and has a nice weight of 190g on its own, or 220g as the set (hood and caps). The powder coated hood looks great on the lens too."
