    New Noctilux not Leica's first lens at 1:0,85

    Was reading Sheerer's "The Leica and the Leica System last night and he has section on fast lenses.
    Leica in 1935 produced a Summar 75mm 1:0,85. It was photographing X-Ray screens and some were use by the German post office to project television images from the 1936 Olympic games.

    "The market wants a Leica to be a Leica: the inheritor of tradition, the subject of lore, and indisputably a mark of status to own."

    The 90mm f/1 (M mount) lens was on eBay.
