Digital Leica M8 / M8.2 / M9 / M-E /Mono / M10 aka "M" Discussions about the Leica M8 /M 8.2 / M9 / M9-P/ M-E / M Monochrom / M10 aka "M": Leica digital M mount rangefinder cameras. Naming the new digital M the "Leica M" is VERY unfortunate as it will only confuse newbies with other Leica M cameras of the the past. Happily there is room for confusion with only the past 59 years of Leica M production ... since Leica introduced the Leica M system in 1953. All Hail for the Leica Marketing Department learning Leica M history!

Hi Mark,
This a good start. The Sept. issue of Shutterbug arrived today and has a one page article on the dots with picture of a lens that I don't recognize with a code of WWBWWB.

Yes, that's the lens which has featured in Leica's promotion, it's not a 15mm f2.8, that's for sure!

After looking at the lenses on the new Leica site, my bet goes to the Summicron 75mm f/2 Asph and since you have that one in process, we'll find out soon enough.
