No, you have to follow the thread. I'm guessing there isn't going to be 
a 75 Summilux. BUT I have heard a rumor there is a 21mm Aspheric coming 
out, a rumor I heard from Germany via Compuserve. I was thinking maybe 
this is where the 75 Summilux rumor might have come from - the fact that 
another ASPH is coming out, that is. 

And who knows? The Noctilux is due for an optical revamping. That was 
announced at the same time as the newest version of the Noctilux at the 
last Photokina where they added a built-in lens hood.
