There are big differences between all those lenses, but when I get into the
21+ range, I don't see the need to own both a 19 and a 21, except for the
fact I own both R and M. So they are available. But for strictly R owners,
give them time. It wasn't that long ago they discontinued the 21 f/4 lens
was it? Leica can't move as fast as bigger companies.
