MS-Optical Apoqualia 35mm F1.4 F/ Leica M
I will miss this one and probably buy it again someday, so tiny and light, very sharp in the center wide open with a lovely bokeh. This one was sent back and calibrated for wide open performance by Mr Miyazaki (and now is) $1175 inc. conus shipping and fees.

That's reflection on the rim of the hood...
