I’m a fan of Leica. And I’m used to their pricing. But after the ‘sandpaper-the-M-for half-a-day-and-call-it-Lenny-Kravtiz-edition’ there’s a new definition for rock bottom as far as Leica concerns.
A few weeks ago Leica released some pictures that were shot with the Leica Thambar 90/2.2 and they look like they were shot with the cheapest lomography hipster plastic lens they could find. Although there is a market for these lenses, I seriously doubt there is a market for these lenses when there’s a price tag attached that says 6080 euros.
So I ask again: Leica, are you kidding me?
