It seems Willoughbys who posted they had the new Leica APO Summicron in stock yesterday were not being truthful. They do NOT have the lens in stock. I did see Kurland listed two in stock and supposedly Amazon is getting them in the next week. But Willoughby’s DO NOT have this lens in stock as they said. I spoke with Ken Hansen and he does not have any as of yet so it seems Willoughby’s was using slimy tactics by showing an IN STOCK status when they were NOT in stock.
The new Leica 50 Summicron 50 APO is IN STOCK NOW at Amazon and sold by Willoughby’s who have a 4.9 star rating (which is SUPERB). They have 19 lenses IN STOCK at the time if this posting. MAN OH MAN if I only had the cash. I have seen many unpublished images form this lens and they were beautiful. A mix of the classic cron and 50 ASPH with a little but “extra”. If i had the cash I would buy one but sadly I do not so maybe some of you out there have been waiting…get it at the link below:
