Thanks Frank yes as I'm realizing Canon actually DOES have a 24mm f/1.4 L
USM  EF but its price point is $1,300  not $6,000 so the glasses they chose
for it are nowhere near what Leica is able to put into a lens targeted at
that small 6 grand market segment... Plus all the other stuff.... Made in
small amounts to high tolerances.
I should be preaching to the choir here on the LUG.
