I've not really been interested in any more 35mm lenses for my kit, until seeing this.
Thank you, Kevin, for sharing this with us!
If the price ends up close to what was mentioned earlier in this thread, I am definitely wanting one. Don't really have a preference about finish--the raw brass looks pretty and will, I think, look better as the lens ages--but I do have a bit of a preference for an LTM version, thought either would suit me and my current kit.
Going to be saving up some $ and keeping an eye on this!
You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
