The Leica 21mm Super-Elmar-M ASPH f/3.4 was released in Paris in June 2011 but then recalled as the focusing was stiff. The lens will be redesigned from 52 mm in diameter to 54mm in diameter so as to allow for grease and a smoother focusing. Expected to be delivered in December 2011.
These images has been taken as JPG straight out of the camera at the release event in Paris.
