Erwin Puts will be printing a third run
of his “Leica Compendium” book this November. It's not clear if there will be any changes in this run from the 2nd Edition released in August. If the previous two editions are any indication, they will sell out in short order.
There is such a demand for my Leica Compendium book that a third printing is necessary. It will become available end November 2011 and is printed in very limited numbers.

Lens coding. Normally a service provided by Leica for older Leica lenses and found on all new lenses. What if you use a Voigtländer, Zeiss or other lens? Or would rather not spend the money and time to get your Leica lens coded? The answer is simple, albeit temporary.

Happy second anniversary, M9!

The newly revamped Voigtländer 35mm f/1.2 Nokton II is starting to trickle in around the globe! The price in the United States is projected at $1399, and the (only) hood (the LH-8) is $109. The performance of the lens remains to be seen, but what we do know is that it's a little bit shorter in length over the old version with a revised optical formula. Also new is the chrome ring around the front of the lens, much like the Zeiss ZM line. More info available on the Voigtländer site.

Back on August 7th, I posted that the Leica Compendium 2nd Edition was shipping. Just to let everyone know, I just received my copy here in the USA. So if you've got one on order, keep an eye out on the mailbox...
You can look forward to a review of this massive book, along with others - in the review section in the near future.
