Erwin Puts,

Leica has introduced some great M glass ( aspheric ) recently in the 24mm & 35
mm focal lengths; I do own the 35 f1.4 ASPH for my M system. However, I really 
enjoy my r8s & am wondering why Leica has not introduced any R-aspheric glass in
the 24mm & 35mm focal lengths. Have you heard if Leica is working on correcting
this omission?
