The synch speed of the M6 TTL is the well known 1/50. BTW: the exposure
meter circuitry is now electronic and completely revised.
There is no 2/90 apo/asph for the Rline announced for now. It might be in
the pipeline for some time to come. Officially no word about it. But the
seminar attendants are free to ask the Leica people about it.
The 135 is for M and has no additional eyes.
The Vario-Elmarit-R 35-70 f/2,8 ASPH (wish Leica should invent shorter
names) weighs 1050 grams and uses E77 filters. Lenght from bayonet is 88mm
and lens cap diameter 133mm.
