Five new Leica SL lenses to be announced: four primes and one zoom

I already reported that I expect Leica to announce several new SL lenses at the Photokina show this year.

Get ready to not see a new Leica M at Photokina

I already mentioned the possibility of Leica not releasing a new digital M rangefinder for Photokina this year.
