Rainer Hercher, Director of Band Pro Munich, delivered the first set of the Summilux-C lenses to Asia. Now, I tremble at the writing “the first,” because it usually triggers a fusillade of rebuttals and reminders to stick with the venerable “National Geographic Style”–no firsts, bests, superlatives or adjectives.
Nevertheless, this Singapore sighting is significant. Leica Summilux-C production seems to be ramping up to the point where your intrepid reporter will trek to the factory in Wetzlar in a couple of weeks to investigate.
