The MS Optical lens Super Triplet Perar 4/28 continues to be popular, in fact so popular that the complete batch of 28mm Perar is close to being sold out and there are currently no plans for another production run.
Stocks for the long-selling Super Triplet Perar 3.5/35 Mark II are also depleting and while there are plans for another run, it will not happen this year.
We have a limited supply of both lenses, to be considered “final stocks” for the above reasons.
For a limited period we are in the privileged position to be able to offer either lens with EU shipping at a small additional cost, therefore bypassing any customs obligations. Please select the EU shipping option when ordering.
At the risk of overusing the word limited in this post, the above photo shows the silver version of the 35mm Super Triplet, originally only available in Hong Kong. Only two lenses are available. SOLD OUT
Lastly, a new lens by Mr Miyazaki is on the horizon, the MS Optical 50/1.13 Sonnetar. The lens offers a very wide aperture and is a Sonnar design. Ten copies will be assembled in early September and details published at that time. These are not prototypes, and to use Mr Miyazaki’s own words “I do not make enough mistakes to justify building that many prototypes” — these are full production spec lenses. After that more lenses are made to produce 300 in total. The lens will be available via various outlets and is priced at Y109.000. We are aiming to offer a EU shipping option for this lens as we are doing for the Perars. More info on this item will follow shortly.
UPDATE: some photos of the lens can be seen here.
UPDATE2: buyers in Hong Kong can buy this lens at Leitzian Limited in Tsim Sha Tsui. Ming Wong will have priority stock and in the beautiful store you can try before buy, and of course meet other Leica people.

We hope you find these MS Optical lens news of interest and welcome questions or comments.
Hi there are you taking deposits for the Euro shipping option for the MS Optical 50mm – if so how can I leave a deposit for this exciting lens?!
Hi Steve, yes it is exciting and we haven’t even really looked at the results yet.
I’m not taking pre-orders yet because the supply situation is still too uncertain. Once we have products in the pipeline I will contact everyone who expressed an interest to give you a chance to purchase.
Until then let’s enjoy learning more about this lens.
I just tested the lens today and that’s amazing especially with such compact size.
Thanks Ming — the size indeed seems remarkable for that performance.
I have added some of your Flickr images to this Flickr Gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/megaperls/galleries/72157631518282938/
We will do a post with more images later.

Hi, the lens is sold out for now, please keep checking back. There are plans to produce another 300 in spring.
Hi, I know the 1st batch of the 50mm 1.1 Sonnetar has sold out already but would like, if possible, to be signed up on a waiting list for the next batch. And EU shipping if available. Thanks.
Hi, thanks for your interest. We have no timing on the next run yet and not taking preorders. Please keep an eye on the site for news and updates.
Hi have just purchased a M8 and it came with a super triplet 35/3,5. I love this gem. I have a couple of questions:
Can you provide me with the 6 bit code for this lens?
How Can I code it myself?
Focusing on infinity I have a hard time aligning the contours in the viewfinder. Is this a lens or a camera issue? Will the coding solve this?
Hi, thanks for your interest.
In the past we have coded it 101011 for Summarit – M 35mm f/2.5. Of course you can use any code you wish. Coding with a black marker (or white in case the mount ring is black) will suffice.
Infinity focus might be related to grease in the lens. Please keep using the lens and it should improve over time.
please put me on the waiting list for the gorgeous Sonnetar too. Thanks and
greetings from good old G.
Hi, thanks. We should have more lenses for sale in January, so watch this space.
My 28 front focusses to a huge amount on my M9 (all my other lenses are fine). Can it be adjusted in any way?
Hi, is this a new lens or did this issue develop over time?
In principle it is a very simply adjustment that can be carried out by any Leica technician. Alternatively you can send the lens to us.
