New 35 summicron?

the 35 cron is about all you need when you need a fast, lightweight and small lens…

Yes, I know. It’s still a rumor, but it might be true. They say that this Photokina, Leica will present a new 35 summicron. The current version, the first aspherical 35 summicron has been in production since 1996. That seems long, but the 50 cron has been in production since 1994 and hasn’t been updated. Unless you consider the APO 50 cron the update of course. As far as I’m concerned, the 35 cron is about all you need when you need a fast, lightweight and small lens which you can shoot anything with. I can’t be exact, but I have shot several ten thousand images with this little lens and it’s a reliable performer. I’ll do a proper review in the near future, but for now, I’ll leave you with a picture that shows its bokeh and rendering. Just lovely!
