What R lenses are you planning on using on the Leica M?
Here are my picks:
60mm f/2.8 Macro
100mm f/2.8 APO Macro
180mm f/2.8 APO
280mm f/4 APO
Maybe 90mm APO with 2x APO instead of 180 (this gives you two lenses in one – used this trick on my DMR)
I was very impressed with the 28-90mm ASPH that Leica was demoing at the booth. The 35-70 2.8 is pretty magical (and I’ve been hoarding on for a long time) and offers a fast, constant f/2.8 aperture…. but the 28-90 offers extended range on both ends.

Hi There David
I hope you’re surviving all this work!
21-35 (although I’m not holding my breath about the corners)
28-90 (Oh Yes!)
60 macro elmarit
180 APO f2.8
I’ve been using these on various mirrorless cameras, and I’m just panting to have a go with them on the M.
all the best

Am I the only one excited about using the Leica Apo-Telyt-Modular 800mm f/5.6 setup on the new M? I wish we never sold our 800mm f/6.3!
