This new R lens will be interesting to see - welcome to the modern world,
Leica! :)

This new M lens has piqued my interest.  Last year I borrowed a 135 f2.8 lens
for a day, and was plesently surprised.  It is an easy lens to hadle on the M6
(still a smaller package than SLR) and the results were supurb--great bokeh!
Will this new 135 have the eyes to magnify the viewfinder?

Hope this rumor is true.  These rumors tend to make you postpone your near-
future purchases!! :).

Thanks for the Input,
