Leica have announced the 2nd. lens for the SL (Typ 601) the Leica APO Vario Elmarit SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4 lens. Amazing spec. Amazing looking. Amazing price!!
'As usual all the poor people are complaining about how much it costs. Seems to me if you can't raise your photography to a level whereby you can afford this, you don't deserve it. And all the usual guff about it not being any good anyway, is what we would expect from these talentless chavs. Apart from anything else it seems like a size and weight that would be useful in beating these oiks off when they try to steal it. I really don't know what all the fuss is about, it only costs the same as a hotel room in Gstaad for the weekend, so just exactly what are they complaining about? Nice to see that Leica are still pricing stuff to keep the riff-raff away. I'll be ordering mine shortly*.'
