[LRflex] Re: Elmarit-R 28mm Discontinued?

>two questions
>1) did u buy the rom version and if so how much did u pay?
Answer: The ROM version, my first brand-new Leica lens. Total landed cost 
AUS$2,677
>2) what are u suing this lens for? DMR
Answer: The lens is mated to an Olympus E1 DSLR, with an adaptor from 
CameraQuest.

>i think leica needs to come up with a new wide angle to cover the DMR
>wides, may be a 16~35 or something
Answer: The next twelve months will be interesting with the 4Thirds zoom 
coming out (14-50mm), maybe the next DMR, and maybe the Digital M. 
Exciting times.
