Leica APO-TELYT-M 135mm f/3.4 lens gets 6-bit coding


The Leica APO-TELYT-M 135mm f/3.4 lens ($3,495) will now be manufactured with 6-bit coding. One of the reasons for this step is because the new Leica M digital rangefinder will make it easier to use telephoto lenses (live view, focus confirmation). If you have purchased the Leica APO-TELYT-M 135 mm f/3.4 lens after September 1st 2012, you can get the 6-bit coding for free.

  • Where did you get the official info from Leica ?

    thank you

    • I cannot discuss my sources.

      • I mean there is no official Leica announcement ?

        • There was an official statement that was distributed to dealers. Not aware of an official press release.

          • I’ve got an official answer directly from Solms today

            “Je vous confirme que dans le proche future nous allons coder les APO-TELYT-M 135mm f/3.4. Les conditions, par contre, ne sont toujours pas réglées”

    Would be interesting to see if the EVF system will work sufficiently well to support something like a 180mm f/2.8. But in the meantime, the die-hard R-solution folks can enjoy using the R lenses on the M body.
