Leica introduced three new versions of the most popular lenses earlier in 2016. Jono has compared the latest 28mm Summicon ASPH with its predecessor and has used them on two the Leicas, M and SL, and on the Sony A7 Mk. II
Last year Fuji brought out a bit of an oddity, a body cap lens. The XM-FL is only available in Japan as at time of writing. In order to get hold of mine I had to resort to eBay and part with seventy-five quid and get it shipped halfway around the world. Two weeks after pressing the button it arrived; possibly the lightest lens-containing parcel I have ever received.
Rumours this week point to a remake of the vintage 28mm f/2.8 Summaron. Mike Evans has been investigating and found this used example at a London dealer. But it's rare and likely to become even rarer once the boys sniff a new model on the way.
