New Leica Lenses

If you didn't know already, I had recently entered into a contest to win a Leica M. So far as contests go this one wasn't totally hopeless, the odds were about as good as they get. So hope against hope I did, and... well you would have heard about it if I had won.

Depending largely on lense(s) chosen, the bill would rise come in between 5000$ ~ 15000$.

As if conjured by my angst then, lo and behold an "affordable" line of Leica lenses is launched just today:

Now if only I could only conjure an "affordable" Leica body to appear like this... :^)
