I caught that, too (one of my favorite new shows). But I thought it was a 
50mm Summilux. Didn't rewind it like I shoulda to freeze the frame. Will try 
to watch it online for the sake of excruciating correctness of detail.

Mark my words?these two characters are headed for the darkroom, if you take 
my meaning, once the ice-queen girlfriend turns out to be a horror show. 
Stay tuned and see what develops.
