    There is desperation, and I can attest to it. Looks like a very short time window of availability that I missed.

    BTW, are dealers allowed to auction lenses? Seems that a company of Leica's quality would frown on that.

    I was at the Leica shop in Vienna, Austria, today; the waiting list for the 50 Asph 1.4 has 30 names on it, expected delivery in June/July, maybe, I was told. They were sold out of the Summicron 50 too, 35 1.4 Asph as well. Long back order list for nearly all lenses, except the 35 Cron Asph which was in stock.....

    Yes, dealers can auction.

    I was told that Leica can only make 12 50/1.4 ASPHs per week, for the entire world market.

    This thread makes me very happy that I bought a 6 month old used 50 Lux ASPH on u-know-where - even though I paid almost the new price for it!

    That's odd that they can auction, but they are prohibited from special sales like a "no sales tax" kind of thing.

    Ha. I contacted them for a Noctilux or a Summilux a couple of weeks ago. The Noctilux is on a 6-8 month wait and the Summilux 3-4 months.

    They have almost nothing in stock. I couldn't even give them my money.

    When I go to Germany again soon I might just take a short trip up to the Leica store in Hamburg and see what's going on there.

    This original thread is from Jan 2011, so there are no lenses now, at least not at this point in time, look for newer threads on subject... I suggest lock this, or change title to reflect date notice posted.
