Here are two Leica rumors to share with you:
Leica 35mm f/1 or f/0.95 M-mount Lens: Leica is rumored to announe a new 35mm f/1 or f/0.95 M-mount lens. The maximum aperture of this Leica 35mm is not confirmed at the moment: f/1 or f/0.95 in M-mount. This new Leica 35mm f/1 or f/0.95 lens could probably be under the Noctilux brand like Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH Lens.
Andy Summers Limited Edition Leica Camera: It is confirmed that a new Andy Summers limited edition Leica camera is coming. Here are two quotes from a recent Sonicscoop interview with Andy Summers (via LR):
“With so many expressions available to Andy Summers, that’s the one he puts first. But it can’t be an easy selection process, when this renaissance man has so many talents to choose from: literary (his memoir One Train Later is an addictive read), photographic (Leica just created a signature camera for him), filmmaker, family man.
I mean, for me, actually it’s a good year this year. I’ve got this record out. It’s going well. I got a signature camera being made by Leica. I should have very nice photo book out later in the year, and then also Fender making a new guitar for me, as well as a nice tour in Brazil and going back to China to play some stuff there. So yeah, it’s looking pretty good.”
Stay tuned for more info.
