The announcement from Leica means that the lens will arrive completely unchanged for 35 years. The lens that Leica describes as the ‘world’s fastest wide-angle lens’ arrives as the 4th addition to the Leica Classic Line, with the stainless-steel front ring, lockable focus ring and black attachable lens hood being modelled on the original.
