I'm not sure, but is this the M Cron 35 APO?

Here is the leaked picture. 

According to the photo, the size is OK, and still E39.

Looking forward to the performance.

That's not really how it works around here. There are already plenty of sharp and contrasty enough 35mm Leica lenses for creative purposes. This, however, has APO stamped on the front and is therefore an immediate must-have. You can expect a blog piece from Jono anytime soon where this is described as the best ever 35mm, blah blah.

If it is true, the new retro Noctilux will no longer be the Leica must-have. Soft/blurry will soon be out again and super sharp high resolution will be back. 😀

I'm pretty sure it will cost just as much if not more than the 50 APO, the APO SL 35 is also pricier than the APO SL 50.
Even the standard 35 Cron is 3700$ already, so I expect it to cost over double that.
Or the 35 Lux FLE costs 5900$ and there will be a healthy price gap between those, too.

I don’t know, if you know, but humans have different tastes and some creatives like to switch it up. ;)

Just looking at the photo, I'd guess it is a APO-Summicron-M 1:2/35 ASPH

Is this a trick question? 😕

Perhaps the question should rather be: "Is the picture real or fake?"

It is on the Leica site as a teaser image, so it is real, the product name was leaked earlier as it was embedded already in a firmware update.

This is a Summilux 1:3.5/105mm lens......

Anyone speculate whether the serial number would be current to 2021?

The serial number and the filter size very obviously on the front of the lens look like the present (non-"Apo") 35mm Summicron-M. It differs a lot from the style of the Apo-Summicron-M 1:2/50mm asph.
