Subject: [Leica] Rollei 40/80mm lenses for Leica-M

I was at MapCamera in Shinjuku yesterday. They have the Rollei 40mm 
and 80mm M-mount lenses that we were discussing the other day on 
CVUG.  The 40mm was Y90,000 (about $850) and the 80mm was about 
Y130,000 (US$1200).  Needless to say, I wasn't very interested in 

The R-D1 lists there at Y291,000 with no "points" and sales tax 
included. This is about $2800. I'm waiting for it to drop a $1000 
before I get too interested in it.
