If you are willing to buy one hundred units, or can arrange a group to 
buy one hundred units, Leica will make any of its current M mount lenses 
in LTM. It may take a year or so to arrange all the details and for the 
lenses to actually get to production. Leica produced a run of 50/1.4, 
50/2 and 35/2A lenses primarily for the Japanese market though they also 
turned up in NA after a while. They were very inexpensive at the end, 
less than the M version, and came with LTM to M adapter. They also did a 
small run of new 35mm finders.

As with all this sort of stuff, they had trouble selling them all and 
had to discount them at the end to move them. Naturally, now they are 
unavailable, prices are going up.
