Leica Miami's email this morning says $5595 for silver and $5395 for black. I have no business looking into this but the fascination is real.

 

EDIT: sorry already been answered!

If the pre asph had a solution to use a filter without the hood (since it flares in its unique way with or without the hood - though I suppose the hood prevents flare in more circumstances? Never tested), one could really maximise the size benefit of that lens.

Regular screw in filters could cause vignetting on a 35/1.4 that small so Leitz decided to remove the filter thread of v1 lenses in favor of Series VII filters dropped between the two halves of the 12504 hood. Would be less of a problem nowadays i guess knowing that the similarly sized Nokton 35/1.4 has a filter thread. The Nokton uses E43 filters though.

New lens is 18g heavier. Aperture and focusing rings closer together. Love the new design though... Will probably get as soon as they offer financing.

Just curious is there any commitment when pre-ordering? Deposit? And can people just jump out of line and change their mind when their number comes up? 

It should be a matter of honor. One should not be a player if he/she won't go along with the rules of the game.

I just got off the phone with the Toronto dealer, apparently I am first in line. usually they most likely will have a few in stock if any indication with the lunch of the M11 and SL2 

they had a few in hand on announcement date. It may be different for lenses I don't know? I guess I will find out soon enough.
